I found it hard to pick one band as a favorite. So, I made one that asks for your top ten. Also, your favorite song from each band.

my last.fm profile says (I took away artists that were only so high up because their albums are like 30 2-minute tracks):

Boards of Canada
The Shins
Cat Power
Burial
The National
Pavement
Tapes'n'Tapes
The Verlaines
Radiohead
Wu-Tang Clan

not my top 10 ever, but if I start thinking about my actual top 10 my head is gonna explode.
