Favourites of 2010 | Albums

Looking at some “best of” lists this year, it seems as though some feel that 2010 hasn’t been spectacular for music. Personally, I feel that it has been a really strong year that yielded some albums that will be in my “favourites” section for years to come. I had a tough time, but here are my favourite 15 albums of 2010. I’m still a little iffy on the ordering, save for #1-3, and had difficulty narrowing it down to my top 15, so I’ve included honourable mentions at the bottom!



EAR CANDY: Florence + the Machine – “Dog Days Are Over” (Yeasayer Remix)

Florence + the Machine has been making waves in the US with their performance on the MTV VMAs and a track on the recent Twilight soundtrack. And let’s just say Florence Welch has no problem selling out shows over here across the border in Canada. She’s already had 2 sold out shows in Toronto and an upcoming one that has already sold out. Capitalizing on their success, the UK “band,” if you will, will be releasing a remix of one of their hit songs, “Dog Days Are Over” by Yeasayer which you can stream below.

If you haven’t heard of Florence + the Machine, my best guess is that you’ve been living under a rock, because she’s (or they’ve) been everywhere lately. If this is the first time you’ve heard of Florence, you should definitely check out her out. Girl has got a set of lungs, which is quite fitting actually, because her debut album was entitled Lungs. Give it a listen and you won’t be disappointed.
