You know those hip moms who shop at your local Trader Joe's? Looks like they got together and voted on 2010's best albums. Isn't that adorable? The results of the poll were published by venerable indie tastemakers NPR (our generation's Rolling Stone, dontcha know), and can be read here.
Unsurprisingly, the list leans heavily on the big-name indie acts who have released albums this year (of which there have been a truly absurd number--The National, Black Keys, LCD Soundsystem, Vampire Weekend, Band of Horses, Broken Social Scene, etc etc etc). Not gonna find any dreamwave on this list (is dreamwave a thing? Dreamwave should be a thing).
