2010 - Your Favorite New Releases So Far? - Page 10

post #136 of 149

There's less than a week to go so I guess it's safe to name the "best" of 2010.

 

In no particular order : Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

                               The National - High Violet

                               The Hidden Cameras - Origin:Orphan

                               Angus & Julia Stone - Down The Way

                               Phosphorescent - Here's To Taking It Easy

                               Rumer - Seasons Of My Soul

                               Robyn - Body Talk Pt.3

                               Royksopp - Senior

                               Kanye West - MBDTF

                               

If Adele's new album, 19, had made it I've no doubt it would make this list. I have high hopes for her.

 

There's a couple of stand-out albums that were released in 2009 but it's taken me this long to get around to them.

 

In no particular order : Camera Obscura - My Maudlin Career

                               The Antlers - Hospice

                

 

It always makes me laugh when people say - particularly people of my generation (45) - "there's no good music any more. The music in the charts is s**t!" They need to dig deeper!

 

I think the new music scene has never been more vibrant and I look forward to see what 2011 brings.

It's a fair point. Royksopp are a band who can't seem to live up to their first album and so I believe expectations are artificially high. On Senior they reference Mike Oldfield which is good enough for me, lol.

Totally agree.  I am similar age and when I installed some upgraded equipment lately, my good friend immediately asked if I had blasted Led Zeppelin and AC/DC on the new system yet.  Legendary bands, yes.  But I held my tongue and did not respond that, actually, the CDs I am playing to test my system are my favorite CDs of 2010, not 1979.   So here is my end of year list, no particular order except Broken Bells, which is my #1 pick of year.

 

Broken Bells - Broken Bells 

Black Keys - Brothers

Arcade Fire - The Suburbs

Massive Attack - Heligoland

School of Seven Bells - Disconnect from Desire

Villagers -- Becoming a Jackal

Vampire Weekend -- Contra

Levi's Pioneer Sessions 2010 Revival Recordings (various artists)

 

Honorable Mention:

Kate Nash - My Best Friend is You

Eels - End Times

Daft Punk - Tron: Legacy (great atmospheric soundtrack)

oops wrong thread...but my fav of the year goes to Scuba - Triangulation

 

Honourable mention to the Fabric 50 mix - Martyn and Fabric mix 53 - Surgeon, the latest Fabric mix 55 - Shackleton is a great way to end off 2010 and begin 2011.

I really dug the Scuba album too.  I kept going back to it many times this year.  In a time where I have so much music, for me to seek something out to listent to it (completely), is amazing.
