After a long deep thought, I finally pulled together my top 10:
1) Death Cab For Cutie / Narrow Stairs / "Cath..." (Why is this not played on The Current?)
An great album from an great band. 'Nuff said.
2) Adele / 19 / "Daydreamer"
Probably one of the best singers of this past decade.
3) The Hold Steady / Stay Positive / "Magazines"
What is there to say?
4) Fleet Foxes / Fleet Foxes / "Oliver James"
They bring 60's rock and folk and make it cool again.
5) Bon Iver / For Emma, Forever Ago / "Skinny Love" (duh)
One of the best releases of this DECADE.
6) Los Campesinos! / Hold On Now Younster / "Knee Deep At ATP"
I really love this band. One of, if not the most energetic album of the year. A ton of fun.
7) She & Him / Volume 1 / "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?"
From Actress to Musician, Zooey Deschanel does a pretty good job.
8) Ra Ra Riot / The Rhumb Line / "Can You Tell"
The most under rated band of this year make a great album.
9) Coldplay / Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends / "42"
They used to be a sad sappy band and now sound like a normal Alt. band. This album may appeal to fans of indie rock.
10) Atmosphere / When Life Gives You Lemons... / "Yesterday" (Why is this not played on The Current?)
The indie hip-hop duo just keeps getting better. Slug sounds best when he's got real instruments behind him.
*Vampire Weekend's album should be in here but its not.
*Also, I love MGMT's "Time To Pretend" but I don't have the album so it can't be in my top ten, I haven't heard all of it.
