BEST OF 2010 IS NOW UPON US

I will alternate between holiday songs and what I think are the best songs of 2010 for you. only for you, dear readers. my list is accessible on my hypem on the side of this fine page. ;) the things I do for you, readers, who mostly hail from Denmark. hi Denmark!

I started off with a goal of 30 that quickly expanded to 35. it was a very good for music! so it was a hard decision. other contributors: feel free to join me in my efforts. and I don't care what you rank. commercials, Kardashians, news items. I DON'T CURR.

35.) "The End of the World Is Bigger Than Love"- Jens Lekman

I called this classic Jens and I stand by that description. just heart-achingly beautiful.



34.) "Get Some"- Lykke Li

OH MY GOD, OH MY GOD. Sarah Silverman has this skit about how she wants to fuck this kind of cheese. And there we have my feelings about this song. Oh, Lykke.



33.) "Boy Lililolllllikoi boy I can't spell today"- Jonsi

The lead singer of Sigur Ros' solo effort was flawless. his voice is perfect and fragile. captures the soaring essence of childhood- you know, when you think you can fly and shit. my heart grows bigger when I hear this song. then it capsizes afterwards.




my little cousin broke her arm the other day. I am compiling her a mixed album for her because I feel bad for the girl; she seems to have my bad luck. putting that on there. she's only seven once- I want her to feel this song while she's still so innocent and it means something!

NEXT TIME:

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
