best of

every year there are people asking me what my recent favourite albums are. i usually don't make lists of the music i have listened to the past year. the main reason for this is that i don't listen to enough new albums to choose from. i can't check out every band mentioned in papers and magazines, and i often hear about what i missed and should catch up on much, much later.

however, this time i managed to compile some sort of best of 2010. note that in a few cases i haven't listened to the whole album yet, but like what i've heard so far. oh and this is of course very much a here and now list. ask me again in a couple of years and i'll surely have some different views on 2010's music..

in no particular order:

  • Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
  • Belle & Sebastian - Write About Love
  • Joanna Newsom - Have One on Me
  • Tame Impala - Innerspeaker
  • Paul Weller - Wake Up the Nation
  • Deerhunter - Halcyon Digest
  • Beach House - Teen Dream
  • Women - Public Strain
  • Sufjan Stevens - The Age of Adz
  • The Dead Weather - Sea of Cowards

are there any great albums missing from this list? i would love to hear about your favourites..

I like Vampire Weekend's album Contra very much.

Great list! I know and like a lot that is on there. The album I miss is Odd Blood by Yeasayer.

My little sister want me to tell you to listen to Four Tet's There Is Love In You. That album has been playing non-stop on her ipod for about a week. :P
