biggest 2010s

December 31, 2010

10 is such an arbitrary number, so instead, I’m just going to list things that were the most of something for me, in no particular order because I decided to do this with 14.5 hours left in the year.

  • Most Disappointing:  LCD Soundsystem’s new album.  What a let down.
  • Biggest Surprise: Matt Marks & Mellissa Hughes The Little Death Volume 1.  I wasn’t expecting to listen to an album that mentioned Jesus about 10,000 times on repeat, at all.
  • Album I came back to the most amount of times: Anti-Social Music’s Fracture: The Music of Pat Muchmore. I still listen to this album almost once a week and have since I got it.  Its not the sort of album I can listen to on repeat, probably because of its intensity, but I keep getting the itch.  Its like regular drug abuse versus binging.
  • Best Bounceback: Max Richter’s infra is the best album he’s made since Blue Notebooks.
  • Coolest Concert Series I discovered: operamission.  I’ve mentioned it a handful of times on this space, so I don’t think I need to add anymore, just look at the links.
  • Only Californians I didn’t find offensive: Jack Curtis Dubowsky and Fred Morgan.  Really enjoyed meeting them and hearing them perform at the Tank.

2010 was on the whole and OK year, but I expect 2011 to be pretty great.  Here we go!
