15 Dic 2010, 10:23

20. Walls - Walls
Oh the droney goodness.

19. Suuns - Zeroes QC
I missed this, for some reason, in 2010. That really pisses me off.

18. James Blake - CMYK / The Bells Sketch/ Klavierwerke EPs
The slickest dubstep around.

17. Candy Claws - Hidden Lands
Surreal pop.

16. Casiokids - Topp Stemning På Lokal Bar
Norwegian electro-pop.

15. Phantogram - Eyelid Movies
The new direction of Trip-Hop.

14. Prefuse 73/Jaytram/Epstein
The most solid remix album of 2010.

13. Magic Man - Real Life Color
Fuzzy synth-pop debut.

12. Avey Tare - Down There
Animal Collective vet's dark, psychedelic solo album.

11. Tame Impala - Innerspeaker
Awesome psych/prog jam band.

10. White Hinterland - Kairos
Heavenly vocals and solid beats.

9. Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma
"Transcends jazz, hip-hop, space and time." - Paste Magazine

8. Wye Oak - My Neighbor / My Creator EP
Beautiful folk rock.

7. Mount Kimbie - Crooks and Lovers
The poster-child of dubstep on 4chan.

6. Yeasayer - Odd Blood
80s-influenced electronic pop-rock.

5. Maps & Atlases - Perch Patchwork
Math-rock band takes a new direction - a sort of folk/pop/rock direction - for the better.

4. CocoRosie - Grey Oceans
White girls on drugs making the most intense hip hop.

3. These New Puritans - Hidden
Ominous, heavy beats and raw vocals.

2. The Ruby Suns - Fight Softly
Liquid, flowing electronic pop.

1. Asura - Asura
The most gorgeous IDM/ambient album of the year, that sadly went mostly unnoticed.

And song of the year:
CocoRosie - RIP Burn Face

    Dig, minus I think that Wye Oak should have been closer to number one. And Coco should just be eliminated.
