I'm bored and all buzzzzed up on coffee and vicodin.
Yes, I know it's a great combo.
My faves (so far):
In no order with the exception of Arcade Fire
1. Arcade Fire - The Suburbs
I highly doubt anything else is going to top this record for me. I'm madly in love with this album.
2. Wavves - King Of The Beach
Recording a clean record and staying away from the extreme lo-fi sound is the best thing this band could of done. Catchy as fuck.
3. Beach House - Teen Dream
Came out earlier this year, but i'm still enjoying it.
4. Sun Kil Moon - Admiral Fell Promises
I still think Mark Kozelek released this record because he wanted to show off his guitar skills (which he most certainly has).
5. Toro Y Moi - Causers Of This
"Low Shoulder" is my fucking JAM.
6. Best Coast - Crazy For You
This record is like one big song, but I love it. So much fun.
By far the most indecisive lyrics iv'e ever heard.
Records I need to give a few more spins:
Broken Social Scene
Sufjan Stevens (ep)
Interpol - Their sound...eh, I've grown tired of it.
Records I'm looking forward to:
Sufjan Stevens (lp)
I know i'm leaving a bunch of stuff out, but they'll come to me in a day or two.
Kozelek's new stuff makes me real sad, for some reason--and not in the way his stuff usually does. I saw him perform last month, and he played almost exclusively off of AFP (i.e. no strumming, except for a mightily appreciated rendition of "All Mixed Up"). Hard to top April for me, though.
Ooh what show was that? I saw him last month too.
Music Hall of Williamsburg--were you there?
I'll just say that Curren$y's Pilot Talk is one of the more concise, cohesive, and enjoyable albums of the year. Very little fluff. Perfect production. Great guests. What more do you need?
@dkolitz Yeah I was there! Up in the balcony close to the stage, jaw agape, the ice in my Jameson on the rocks melting as I watched in awe. I nearly freaked out when he played "Duk Koo Kim". Prefix in da buildin!
2. SIR LUSCIOUS
3. BEFORE TODAY
4. TEEN DREAM
6. THIS IS HAPPENING
7. HIGH VIOLET
8. HOW I GOT OVER
9. PLASTIC BEACH
10. NEW AMERYKAH, PT. 2
archandroid, treats and all airtight's revenge are all up there as well...
Been working on this list, bottom of my top 10 changes constantly, but so far Contra, King of The Beach, and Treats are the clear cut top 3 (have yet to give proper attn' to new Arcade Fire; like AnCo last year, I wait a couple of months for that kind of hype to die down).
Otherwise it's a crap shoot between:
Of The Blue Colour of the Sky
Stuck on Nothing
Reasons (Red Pens)
There's still a ton that could force it's way on here, though (and like I said, still haven't given proper attention to a bunch of things I'd generally like).
Songs is gonna be a fun, weird list for me. Last year I picked some things I thought would be more popular in P & J but I ended up being the only one voting for (Morrissey, Black Lips, Mew, Titus Andronicus): http://www.villagevoice.com/pazznjop/critics/2009/763217/
In no order:
Coliseum - House With A Curse
Daughters - S/T
Fang Island - S/T
Trash Talk - Eyes And Nines
Starkey - Ear Drums And Black Holes
Ceremony - Rohnert Park
Drake - So Far Gone
Curren$y - Pilot Talk
Big Boi - Sir Lucious Leftfoot: The Son Of Chico Dusty
Grown Ups - More Songs
Minus The Bear - OMNI
Autechere - Oversteps/Move of Ten
Caribou - Swim
The Fall - Your Future Our Clutter
Four Tet - There is Love in You
High On Fire - Snakes For The Divine
Ital Tek - Midnight Colour
Liars - Sisterworld
Melvins - The Bride Screamed Murder
Menomena - Mines
Nina Nastasia - Outlaster
Starkey - Ear Drums and Black Holes

Forgot about Big Boi.
Sufjan & Summer Camp EPs are awesomesauces
Doing these lists I always forget which albums came out which year. From what I think came out in 2010:
Titus Andronicus - The Monitor
Big Boi - Sir Lucious
Big KRIT - KRIT Wuz Here
Best Coast - Crazy For You
Ariel Pink - Before Today
Tallest Man on Eath - Wild Hunt
I keep waiting for High Violet to fade for me, but I saw those dudes on Monday and that shit isn't going anywhere. Great record.
Superchunk - Majesty Shredding
Women - Public Strain
Roots - How I Got Over
Sharon Van Etten - epic
Phosphorescent - Here's to Taking It Easy
Walkmen - Lisbon
I'm sure there's more, I'm blanking. That's a good enough start.
I think Kanye just pushed his way to the top of my list.
