Top Tunes of 2010

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011

OK since 2010 pretty much sucked on all fronts, I was left bereft of a serious collection of musical discoveries for the year. So I polled the Facebook, plumbed the depths of Pitchfork and went on a walkabout through iTunes. I had a $25 iTunes gift card to spend, so in lieu of an actual “Best Of” list, here is what I ended up purchasing based on my research. In no particular order:

The Nervous Wreckords – Everything Stops for Tea

James Blake – I Only Know (What I Know Now)

Kanye West – Power

Sade – Soldier of Love

Trombone Shorty – Backatown

Florence + The Machine – Girl With One Eye

Fitz & The Tantrums – MoneyGrabber

The Avett Brothers – I and Love and You

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qqZZlL0l5Uk

Mumford & Sons – Little Lion Man

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aRd7UVKvvCM&feature=fvst

Griffin House – The Guy that Says Goodbye to You is Out of His Mind

The Morning Benders – Pleasure Sighs

Beach House – 10 Mile Stereo

Tired Pony – Get On the Road

Local Natives – Wide Eyes

Gayngs – The Beatdown

Lyrics Born – Oh, Baby!

Tennis – Things to Do When You Are Sad (no link, sorry)

I actually ran out of ideas at that point and used the remaining $3 to buy part of Keith Horn’s “Rock Scissors” album. Check out Keith if you like your music weird.

Were I to compile a list of favorite songs prior to this little adventure, it would go something like this:

The Weepies – Please Speak Well Of Me

Sun Kil Moon – Half Moon Bay

James Murphy – Please Don’t Follow Me

Esperanza Spalding – Really Very Small

Daft Punk – Derezzed

Crowded House – Twice If You’re Lucky

The Bird & The Bee – I Can’t Go For That

The Books – I Didn’t Know That

Jaga Jazzist – One-Armed Bandit

Eric Johnson – Fatdaddy

Black Country Communion – Black Country
