2007 Year End Survey | JB Leduox

Well, it's taken me two months but this is the final post in our 2007 Year End Survey. 34 responses in total. Thanks to everyone who participated this year. We get a lot of good feedback from people saying they enjoy these posts more than the traditional year-end lists. So, I'm glad to have so many people willing to take the time to send over some thoughts on their favorites of the year.

We started these surveys with Tanner McCuin who is an avant-garde musician and blogger in Burlington and we are going to end it with an avant-garde musician and blogger in Burlington. JB Leduox has been writing his blog, the le duo, about the Burlington music scene since 2005 and has recently added his own talents to that scene by starting two bands in 2007. The first band is his experimental jazz outfit and shares the same name as his blog. The second project is one called Solah and includes fellow blogger Jay Blanchard from Spitting Out Teeth. According to this post on the le duo, they're promising a forthcoming album. Nice. Hopefully, it'll make a bunch of people's lists next December.

1) What was your favorite song of 2007?
