Top Music of 2010

I’ve wanted to post this for some time, but kept forgetting to do so. I think I’ve been avoiding it because I usually write up a little bit about each Top 10 record at the very least. I’ll have to add it later as I’m still not in a mindset to write it up! I still need to add links.

At any rate, here’s what I loved and listened to in 2010. There are many records released that I never got around to purchasing, so I’ve got a list of almost two dozen I’d like to get at this point!

1. Teenage Fanclub-Shadows
2. Frightened Rabbit-The Winter of Mixed Drinks
3. Glossary-Feral Fire
4. Two Cow Garage-Sweet Saint Me
5. Admiral Fallow-Boots Met My Face
6. Broken Records-Let Me Come Home (couldn’t wait for the US release, so I ordered from Amazon UK!)
7. Treecreeper-Juniper
8. Elvyn-The Declline
9. Stornoway-Beachcomber’s Windowsill
10. Superchunk-Majesty Shredding
