    Nov 27 2010, 15:18

    Put together a "best of" listing for the year and want to share it with you. Drop some feedback and hopefully I can learn some more! I've got a new couple new bands waiting to be checked out but I'd love it if you helped me add to the list.

    As ordered on my 8tracks playlist. If you want to give me a present then come leave a comment!
    The 8tracks TOS says that I can't link directly to the set, but I don't think you'll have any problems finding it. Checkout my information tab on both FB, Twitter or Last.fm for a clue.

    1. Rudi Zygadlo - Resealable Friendship - Great Western Laymen - thanks to @chibisangst for turning me on to this.
    2. Two Door Cinema - I Can Talk (French Horn Rebellion Remix) - Kitsune x Ponystep

    7. Bassnectar - Timestretch (West Coast Lo Fi Mix) - Timestretch As seen at the Intersection. Holy raver kids batman.
    8. Blue Foundation - Eyes On Fire (Zeds Dead Mix) - rubadubdubbb blog - Yes this is a remix from a song on the Twilight sndtrk. I won $100 because of the kismet of discovering this song. If ya like some dubstep then this one is a gem.
    9. Menomena - Wet and Rusing - Wet and Rusting EP - I don't love everything they do, but when their formula works…
    10. Ellie Goulding - Under The Sheets (Jakwob Remix) - Lights - Essential pop dance
    11. Depth Affect - Amanecer - Chorea - The album isn't as good as Hero Crisis, but I still love them.
    12. Leonard Dstroy - Trying To Find My Way feat. Reggie B - Higher Vibrations - This is free. you should DL it.
    13. Andreya Triana - Draw The Stars - Lost Where I Belong - As seen with Bonobo. This whole album is a gem. Dreamers take note. For true believers go get her Dream Suite remix with JConda. You'll be happy you did. I was.
    14. Paper Romance - Groove Armada - Black Light
    15. Delorean - Simple Graces - Subiza - Summer time goodness for your stereo. Makes me want to go back to Ibiza and dance until I fall asleep on the beach.
    16. Dom - Living in America - Sun Bronzed Greek Gods
    17. Broken Bells - The High Road - The High Road
    18. Hot Chip - I Feel Better - One Life Stand

    24. Kid Cudi - Marijuana - Man On The Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager
    25. Janelle Monae - Tightrope (feat. Big Boi) - The ArchAndroid - This makes me want to choreograph a group dance.
    26. The Roots - Walk Alone - HIGO - This disc resonates with me a lot more than WAKE UP. Both are good but HiGO wins.
    27. MosDub - Ms. Vampire Booty/History Town - Remix disc my Max Tannone - lots of great free tunes on his site. Summertime goodness.
    28. Erykah Badu - Window Seat - New Amerykah Pt . 2 Return of the Ankh
    29. Bonobo (feat. Andreya Triana) - Eyesdown - Black Sands - Easily my favorite album of the year. A beautiful combination of sounds with genius production. Add Andreya's dreamy voice, some dubstep beats and throw in an incredible live show. This album is great at the gym, kicking yer feet up or breaking it down in the club. Peep some of the remixes too.
    30. Gayngs - Faded High - Relayted - Yes it's a super group. Yes it's part Bon Iver. Yes it's worth owning.
    31. LCD Soundsystem - I Can Change - This is Happening - Another must have from 2010 - is this list getting hawt?
    32. The Glitch Mob - A Dream Within A Dream - Drink The Sea - Edit, Boreta and Oooah are all amazing. Combined they are unstoppable. As seen live at the Intersection. You should've been there. I think they put on a doper show than Bassnectar. But that's just me.
    33. Tokimonsta - Lovely Soul - Midnight Menu
    34. Gold Panda - You - Lucky Shiner - Another fantastic disc.
    35. Baths - Rain Smell - Cerulean - As seen live at Founders during Prospecto

    37. Crystal Castles - Celestica - Crystal Castles (II)
    38. Deftones - Sextape - Diamond Eyes - As seen live at The Orbit Room - They put on such a dope show. It had been close to 10 years since I've last seen them. A glorious sound.
    39. Sleigh Bells - A/B Machines - Treats
    40. Minus The Bear - Summer Angel - Omni - As seen live at the Intersection - great band with excellent writing. It's music like this that makes me not lose faith in rock.

    48. Vex'd - Heart Space (feat. Anneka) - Cloud Seed
    49. The Album Leaf - Tied Knots - A Chorus of Storytellers
    50. Jonsi - Tornado - Go - As seen live at the Fillmore - one of the most visually amazing shows evar.
    51. Brian Eno - Late Anthropocene - Small Craft On A Milk Sea

    Okay so what did I miss? Does Kanye's newest deserve a shoutout? Did Pitchfork lose your respect by giving him a 10? I have to say that there are some dope beats, but I can't call it perfect. I sure as hell isn't a 10. Does NERD, Slum Village or Talib need to be in here? They all have new stuffs out. KRS-One and Qwel, Maker do too. Oh - looks like I need a playlist just for that. Already made. Peep the 8tracks, make me happy and leave a comment.

    Lots of thanks to the WideDelicious crew who keeps me finding new goodness all of the time. Checkout our collective mix tapes - WideDelicious
