Hey. I used to frequent Sptunik often but took a break for a while. In the meantime I got into shape, learned how to cook and watched more movies than ever. However, I fell way behind on 2010 music and I'm try to put more time into music like I used to. So here's a list of some stuff I've been listening to over my Sputnik hiatus. Any recommendations for 2010 music I most likely overlooked would be much appreciated.
1Vato Negro
Vato Negro

Bass and drum band with Juan Alderete and Jon Theodore? Fuck yeah.
2Portugal. The Man
American Ghetto

I still jam The Satanic Satanist pretty much daily in my car, but I've come
around to American Ghetto too. Probably because I've been deprived of new
music for so long. But anyway, its a solid album and I'm definitely going to try
and catch them live again this spring.
3The Brian Jonestown Massacre
Who Killed Sgt. Pepper?

Speaking of 60s revival, I got into Brian Jonestown after watching DiG! (which is
awesome by the way). I went on a streak where all I listened to was BJM for
like a week.
4Godspeed You! Black Emperor
Slow Riot For New Zero Kanada

Still my favorite album of all time. I'm super excited to finally see them live in a
couple weeks in a fucking church in NYC.
Disconnection Imminent

Joe Lally is a damn genius.
Halcyon Digest

Of the few 2010 albums I ended up listening too, this would probably be my

I really got into this too.
8Death From Above 1979
You're a Woman, I'm a Machine

When I first read they reformed I just about came in my pants. Next to
Godspeed reforming or jumping in a delorean to see At The Drive-In play,
DFA1979 would be the one band I would want to see live. I'm still waiting for
them to post some shows outside of a festival, but when they do I'll be all over
9Q and Not U
No Kill No Beep Beep

When I need some punk that's not Fugazi.
10RX Bandits
The Resignation

I think I've come to terms with this being RX's best album. At least the first
half, which is pretty much perfection.
Dig Me Out

Anyone watch Portlandia? Seeing Carrie in a sketch show is pretty

So Tyondai quit and they scrapped the new album that was supposed to come
out last year, yet somehow I'm still kind of excited for their new album.
13The Weakerthans
Reconstruction Site

Still amazing.

Isn't it time for a new Mew album?
15 Violent Femmes
Violent Femmes

I came across these guys and immediately loved the music. Probably one of my
best discoveries of last year.
16Young Widows
Old Wounds

I hear they've got a new album coming out soon, should be awesome.
17Panda Bear
Person Pitch

When is Tomboy coming out? Seriously.
18Joy Division
Unknown Pleasures

I saw Control a little while back and thought it was great. Such a classic album.
19Flying Lotus

Another 2010 favorite.
Petitioning the Empty Sky

Still better than Jane Doe.
Waiting for the Next End of the World

J. Robbins can do no wrong.
Majesty Shredding

I also enjoyed this.
23The Black Keys

Is anyone else annoyed at how much The Black Keys have been selling out?

No reason, just Daughters.
