My 2010 Favorite Music List

I feel like I personally slacked in my music enjoyment duties this year. There were a few albums I completely missed by artists that I really like. There were new bands that I meant to check out that I never did. Life shifted into overdrive this year and it was really good but extremely busy. I blame my music slacking on that. Here's what I have for you.*


"Fortune" - Midlake from The Courage of Others
"Sun Hands" - Local Natives from Gorilla Manor
"Swim" - Surfer Blood from Astro Coast
"Heirloom" and "Enchanting Ghost"- Sufjan Stevens from All Delighted People EP
"I Walked" - Sufjan Stevens from The Age of Adz
"Your Hands (Together)" - The New Pornographers from Together
"Excuses"- The Morning Benders from Big Echo
"All the Pennies" and "Hourglass" - Mindy Gledhill from Anchor
"That's Some Dream" - Good Old War from Good Old War
"On My Way Back Home" - Band of Horses from Infinite Arms
"We Used to Wait" and "Wasted Hours" - Arcade Fire from The Suburbs
"Careful Crossers" and "Dreams of Dreams" - Fang Island from Fang Island
"Sailing to Nowhere" - Broken Bells from Broken Bells
"Grenade" - Bruno Mars from Doo-Woops & Hooligans
"Double Rainbow Song (feat. Yosemitebear)" - The Gregory Brothers from the Internet
"Daddy Ate My Fries" - Marceline from Adventure Time (with Finn and Jake)
"Love is My Legs" - from Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (David Yazbek)
