So I won’t bore you to tears with my tedious psycho babble on why these are my Top 10 Albums of 2010because frankly we all know you and I don’t have the time to write or read the reasons and I believe you really don’t care however I like to write lists and document; it’s a genetic thing so I’ll give you pictures with a small brief, how’s that sound?
Out of the shit load of music I purchased this year this is what made my top 10, it was freakin hard to narrow down so here goes…
Kanye West- My Dark Twisted Beautiful Fantasy: Masterpiece! Yep Yeezy did it! Yeezy taught me. Let Yeezy teach you. Gather around children zip it listen.
James Murphy I just want to hug you! Have you read the lyrics to ‘I can Change’? it makes me cry! Brilliant Brilliant Brilliant album.
If you like Connie Francis, Patsy Cline, Shangri-La’s, Best Coasts- Crazy In Love picks up where they left off so very girly, full of little stories, It’s tops.
Arcade Fire-The Suburbs, Superb! Hypnotic, broody, leaves you feeling heavy in a good way like a good book.
Warpaint-The Fool, Beautiful! If you were to dive into the ocean and rest on the ocean floor this would be the soundtrack.
Grinderman-Grinderman 2. Mischievious, Rowdy, Dirty, just the way I like it! The man is a genius.
The Chemical Brothers-Further. Superb, immersive, melodic and dead danceable just like every other Chemicals album.
Dum Dum Girls- I will Be. Think: Stooges, Jesus and Mary Chain, The Cramps. Awesome garage fuzz guitar rock, stoner girls in leather. I love that the production is raw. It shits all over Vivian Girls. Just saying.
Beach House-Teen Dream. It took me a long time to get into this album, in the end I was emotionally engaged its textural and full of dynamics, I can hear Stevie Nicks in her (Victoria Legrand) vocals. It’s definitely a grower.
Zola Jesus-Stridulum II, I fell in love with Zola one early morning while watching Rage. Gothic, dark, moody, Siouxsie Sioux vocals, she won me over that easy. It’s a brilliant brilliant album.
Honourable Mentions: Wavves- Post Acid, The Walkmen-Lisbon, Foals-Total Life Forever, MIA- Kala, arrr I’d better stop.
