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.

Andrew W.K. – Cadillac

I’ve never been a fan of the Andrew W.K. stuff I’ve heard before, but I just heard this on 6 Music and it’s unbelievable, possibly partly because it was so unexpected.
