Music I’ve liked in 2010

Just as I did last year, I submitted my top 5 albums of 2010 to Peenko’s BAMS list. You can view the collective results of that list, of which some of my top 5 were featured. However, I’m not that keen on ranking records in order, so here are those 5 plus a bunch more, in absolutely no order (and apologies to the host of great records I will only remember to include once this is posted).

  • The National - High Violet
  • Best Coast - Crazy For You
  • Meursault - All Creatures Will Make Merry
  • The Japanese War Effort - I Will Leave You Now, And Two Loudspeakers Will Take My Place
  • Pantha Du Prince - Black Noise 
  • Gold Panda - Lucky Shiner
  • Yusuf Azak - Turn on the Long Wire
  • The Phantom Band - The Wants
  • Field Music – Measure
  • Mitchell Museum – The Peter’s Port Memorial Service
  • Bear in Heaven – Beast Rest Forth Mouth
  • Broken Records - Let Me Come Home
  • LCD Soundsystem – This Is Happening
  • Laura Marling - I Speak Because I Can
  • Errors - Come Down With Me
  • Timber Timbre - Timber Timbre
  • Broken Social Scene – Forgiveness Rock Record
  • The Scottish Enlightenment – St. Thomas
  • Port-royal - Dying in Time (Yes, it was released in 2009. I don’t care.)
  • The Unwinding Hours – The Unwinding Hours
  • Sufjan Stevens - Age Of Adz
  • Teenage Fanclub - Shadows
  • Arcade Fire – The Suburbs
  • Wooden Shjips – Vol. 2
  • Local Natives - Gorilla Manor
  • Foals - Total Life Forever

You should go and buy some of these. Go on.
