Yotimi Tracks 2010

I know the Track lists aren't as popular as the Album ones but oh well. At least listen to a couple you don't know and tell me how much they suck.
1Perfume Genius
Mr. Peterson

One of my favorite songs of all time is "Hope There's Someone" by Antony and the Johnsons. This song gives off almost the exact same (almost too intimite) vibe. One of the saddest songs I've ever heard, it tells the tale of Mike Hadreas' affair with his high school teacher - and then the teacher's ultimate suicide - through a simple but perfect piano melody and heart-wrenching vocals. Watching him perform this live is almost too uncomfortable to sit through.
2Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Can't Hear My Eyes

I usually dismiss catchiness for something more artistic or complex, but I'll make an exception here. From the intro and verses' vintage sound to the amazing chorus there's not a dull moment. Add in the sax and the perfect bass compliments during the solo/interludes. Pure Genius.
3The Tallest Man on Earth
King of Spain

I don't think I need to explain this one.
4Lone
Ultramarine

Not very known around these parts of the interweb, but this electronic artist knows how to capture a perfect sound. A little light on the songwriting, but still this is the best electronic production I've heard all year. Listen loud with good speakers.
5The Knife
Colouring of Pigeons

The opera stuff was pretty cool on the album. I mean I wasn't blown away like some people. But when those pounding drums led into this track, that was when I was like "oh yeah. Here's The Knife". Such a huge song.
6The National
Conversation 16

"Bloodbuzz, OH" was my favorite almost all year. Then someone was like "Nah man, Conversation 16!" And I was like "Yeah you're right." Plus the whole eat your brains thing.
7Future Islands
Walking Through That Door

Tom Waits goes new wave. Love the vocals. Love the Synths. Love everything about it.
8Titus Andronicus
A More Perfect

Because it's a really good song with kick-ass guitars. "The Battle of Hampton Roads" is great too, don't get me wrong. But this track's intensity is just what I need when I'm looking for an in-your-face full throttle punk anthem.
9Beach House
Silver Soul

Victoria Legrand's vocals are Sublime.
10Liars
No Barrier Fun

Sisterworld kind of sounds like a How-to guide on becoming a serial killer. And this track is the sound of that killer walking through the alley at night looking for someone to strangle.
11Emeralds

12Tame Impala

13Baths

14The Tallest Man on Earth
Burden of Tomorrow

Such a good melody on an album filled with brilliant vocal melodies.
15Caribou
Kaili
16Max Richter
Infra 5
17Danger Mouse & Sparklehorse
Revenge (Ft. The Flaming Lips)

It's the song on the album with Wayne Coyne, that's why it's good.
18Warpaint
Undertow

Those backing vocals are actually what stand out for me on this.
19Sleigh Bells
Infinity Guitars

The last minute of this song destroys almost everything this year.
20Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Round and Round

Best Chorus of the Year.

The album works much better as a whole. But this track stands out as it is the perfect start to the album's movements.
