MY FAVE RECORDS OF 2010 PART 1
wow, 2010... what a year.
did you know that there were more natural disasters this last year than any other year EVER? and guess what, it's only gonna get worse! and WE'RE DOING IT! we can sit back comfortably and update our blogs and profiles and feel safe and lucky we don't live somewhere like haiti... but it's coming our way. maybe soon. all of a sudden things like high speed wireless internet will seem less important than finding clean water. but i digress, these are just the kinds of things that keep me up at night.
who cares about all that when you can make lists of all the cool records you bought last year with your disposable income! anyway...
NEEDLES//PINS- FIRST WORLD PROBLEMS
seems appropriate, no? the best (and funnest) band to hit vancouver in ages. you can download this album for free somewhere out there in internetland, i suggest you do so.
THE THE- SOUL MINING
this was the sound of my summer.
dope power pop. this song isn't on this album, but you get the idea...
UB40- PRESENT ARMS/PRESENT ARMS IN DUB
my love for reggae is unconditional.
GODLEY & CREME- ISMISM
this year i became obsessed with these dudes. kind of obnoxious, but...
GENERAL PUBLIC- HAND TO MOUTH
i also listened to their other album a ton. beach jams.
RINGO STARR- BEAUCOUPS OF BLUES
i fucking love ringo.
THE SPECIALS- S/T
i may love ringo, but i think i'm IN LOVE with terry hall.
CHRIS REA- ON THE BEACH
my dad would be proud.
VANESSA PARADIS- M&J
what can i say? i was and still am completely OBSESSED with this song.
more to come!
