Happy Thanksgiving to all of the readers and staff of LPC. As something to read while you're in between your sixth serving of turkey and fifth serving of cranberry sauce or whatever you people eat, here's another top ten list from the LPC staff. This one comes from our writer Blitzrules240, who specializes in indie rock, alternative rock, and Colts football.
I'm attempting to watch a Thanksgiving parade while typing this, so I'll keep my part short. Here's Blitzrules240's top ten albums of 2010:
10. Minus The Bear - OMNI
Minus The Bear follows up Planet Of Ice with another Psychedelic, Sexy Acid Trip.
9. Dirty Tactics - It Is What It Is
One of the best bands I discovered this year, Dirty Tactics style of punk rock is a refreshing thing to listen to.
8. Sleigh Bells - Treats
One of the more entertaining albums this year. Sleigh Bells style of music was something new to my ears but I enjoyed it.
7. Foxy Shazam - Foxy Shazam
Said to be one of the most energetic rock bands on the planet, Foxy Shazam's self titled follow up to Introducing is a Masterpiece.
6. Weezer - Hurley
Weezer redeem themselves from the failure that was Raditude with a solid album that has almost no flaws...except Where's My Sex.
5. Vampire Weekend - Contra
Vampire Weekend has yet another solid album with Contra, The albums just makes you want to lay on a beach sipping lemonade as babes play volleyball in tight swimsuits.
4. Alkaline Trio - This Addiction
This Addiction was one of the best albums I listened to this year. Matt Skiba's lyrics in this album are so full of passion, this is in the top 5 for sure.
3. Ludo - Prepare The Preparations
Ludo is a hidden gem for most. The guys for St.Louis got big air play with Love Me Dead but this album tops it with a genre bending album which is genius.
2. Electric Six- Zodiac
Dick Valentine is a goddamn genius, the man behind Electric Six brings out another feel good, dance your ass off, jam with your socks on album which is pure gold...but it wasn't the purest gold.
1. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
OK, you all knew this was coming. I loved this band from the moment I heard Neon Bible. This album is far beyond that. It's a beautiful album and it's my Album of the Year.
So with this list, we got to see some names you wouldn't normally see on LPC and that's a good thing. Well done, Blitzrules.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all and thanks for making LPC the great site it is.
