Top Albums of 2010
Premature, you say? The first month of the year is hardly over, you say? Chicken noodle soup is better cold, you say? Prunes are your favorite dried fruit, you say? How about you just keep it down over there. An extreme amount of good music has been released so far this year, and even more has been leaked. So I’m going to do a little top 12. Here it comes.
12. One Life Stand – Hot Chip
11.IRM – Charlotte Gainsbourg
10. Black Noise – Pantha du Prince
9. Broken Bells – Broken Bells
8. Causers of This – Toro y Moi
7. Hippies – Harlem
6. The Besnard Lakes Are the Roaring Night – The Besnard Lakes
5. Gorilla Manor – Local Natives
4. Ambling Alp – Yeasayer
3. Heartland – Owen Pallett
2. Contra – Vampire Weekend
1. Teen Dream – Beach House
We’ll see how the rest of the year shapes up. The new Hornblower EP is supposed to be a masterwork.
