My album of the year race is, at the moment, a three way tie between Solar Bears, Forest Swords, and Nest.

I've been listening a bit to the debut album by a retro doom band called Ghost, Opus Eponymous.  Remember on old Scooby Doo cartoons when the gang would be all looking for clues, and then they'd run into the monster that was really an old guy in a rubber mask, and it would chase them around while music played in the background?  Ghost sound like that music, except they are all about Satan.  Anyway, the album comes at the recommendation of Fenriz of Darkthrone, so you can trust it to be pretty rockin'.

And if this riff does not cause you to bang your head, you are probably wearing a neck brace

Michio Kurihara played guitar for Ghost.

And you all know my theory regarding Mr. Kurihara: anything he touches is gold.

Edit: Wait no, this is a totally different Ghost. But they are fucking rad.

Dude I mean, really? She's just Lil Kim: The Return.

minaj is considerably wackier and has a better sense of flow & metre and also has more complex/interesting relationship w/ female sexuality. plus "monster" is one thing but her two mixtapes are absolute fire, dude.

i still haven't heard good ass job which is what i'm still going to call the new kanye record no matter what.

So 2010 was a bit hohum, I mean I didn't really see all that much in the way of good show-



Ok that was really fucking awesome but I mean really that was February and-



Yeah that was absolutely Goddamned brilliant, but-



OK I GET THE POINT, PLUS THAT WAS RIGHT AFTER THE LAST THING AND I WAS LIKE A FOOT AWAY FROM IT, but this year'd need like one more awesome thing to make it-



God damnit

(tl; dr I saw like four out of my five favorite bands this year)

I saw Ted Leo & The Pharmacists (who were #1 on my must see list) and The Dopamines (who are like my new favorite band).

And met Mikey Erg (at the latter)!

It's pretty good! Lots of banjo, which is awesome because I have a huge hillbilly boner for banjos in almost any form.

Only listened to it once at low volume though, so we'll see how it holds up at more appropriate volumes and across more listens.

Eh, I won't deny that Dark Side of the Moon is a great record and that they don't have their fair share of awesome songs, but Pink Floyd's way too hyped up by dads and generic classic rock radio.

I didn't see anything scheduled on the band's myspace, so I'm assuming there is nothing going on.

What's really bugging me is I get the feeling I've heard Nuclear Ambition part 2 somewhere before hearing of Man's Gin, but I can't figure out where it would have been.

I don't know how this is possible, but apparently Pitchfork think there are 100 albums this year that are better than Surfer Blood's Astro Coast.

The Liars thing baffles me. So does the Toro Y Moi and Surfer Blood decision actually, not b/c I like those albums but b/c they're so...Pitchfork-y. I would have put money on both of those being in the top 20. Liars, on the other hand, put out quite possibly the best album to emerge from the mainstream side of indie rock this year with the possible exception of Halcyon Digest. It won't be on my top 10 but it would sure as hell be in a top 50 and I'm pretty stunned P4K doesn't agree. Of course, Kanye will get #1 and the new Arcade Fire will be in the top 10 so who cares what they think anyway?

Really? I listened to the Liars album like three or four times and I felt like I had to make myself do it ever time. There's something there, no denying that, but I never really thought it was album of the year material or anything like that.

That, and Swans. Their top 10 is probably gonna end up having a few good albums, and a few lame ones.
