2010 was the best year for music in recent memory. Some artists proved music could still sell despite worries of piracy (Taylor Swift, Eminem), a few proved music videos still mattered (Lady Gaga, Katy Perry), and there were plenty of ubiquitous singles of varying quality (“F*** You”, “California Gurls”, “Billionaire”). So much great music came […]

2010 was an awesome year for music. So much of an awesome year in fact that I have nominated 25 records for album of the year. I’ll be releasing my final Top Ten in about a week or so but I’d like to hear from the readers as well. Voting closes in 1 month!

I was very excited to see Spoon. Their Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga album is one of my favorite albums of last year. Unfortunately, the night started inauspiciously. I was supposed to go to the concert with my friend, she waited too long to buy her ticket, and the show was sold out. So, I […]

This latest album from Spoon is an interesting proposition – an eight song EP that includes seven different versions of one song. The song that the majority of the album is built on is “Don’t You Evah” which was one of a number of great three minute pop songs on Spoon’s Ga Ga Ga Ga […]
