as a blog, its probably an important idea to do one of those year-end lists because youre not a legitimate blog without some ridiculous list that only serves to arbitrarily bookend a measurement of time. and since im new to blogging, i really want to be legit. so aboard the bandwagon i go…
here are my 14 fave mp3s of 2010 in half-assed countdown order as determined by my brutal and hip senses. was gonna do top 100 but a bunch of other shitty blogs already pulled that include-everything stunt. i wont stoop.
in brief, 2010 was all about kanye west because its always about him. but brutal hipster is not about kanye so here are my brutal faves sans kanye (with accompanying song in ipad-friendly video format).
14. black rebel motorcycle club “beat the devils tattoo”
13. active child “im in your church at night”
12. tame impala “lucidity”
11. sufjan stevens “all delighted people”
10. twin sister “all around and away we go”
9. the black angels “sunday afternoon”
8. best coast “goodbye”
7. la sera “never come around”
6. black mountain “hair song”
5. deerhunter “helicopter”
4. lower dens “tea lights”
3. harrys gym “old man”
2. beach house “walk in the park”
