With the conclusion of 2010 and 2011 fast approaching, I have been putting together a couple solid (and practical) New Year’s Resolutions as well as reflecting on the best music of the year. So to share with you, here are my favorites- The 10 of 2010:

1. Local Natives. Gorilla Manor.

2. Broken Bells. Broken Bells.

3. Arcade Fire. The Suburbs.

4. S. Carey. All We Grow.

5. The National. High Violet.

6. Ra Ra Riot. The Orchard.

7. She & Him. Volume 2.

8. Sarah Jaffe. Suburban Nature.

9. Ray LaMontagne & The Pariah Dogs. God Willin’ and the Creek Don’t Rise.

10. Mumford & Sons. Sigh No More.

It’s interesting to reflect on all the music I listened to the most throughout the year because each brings back a specific memory of 2010. I’d have to say it was a rollercoaster of a year going from school to unemployed to working and living in three different places. I’m ready for 2011. And can’t wait for the music it will bring.
