Hey.

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.
5Decahedron
Disconnection Imminent


Joe Lally is a damn genius.
6Deerhunter
Halcyon Digest


Of the few 2010 albums I ended up listening too, this would probably be my favorite.
7Caribou
Swim


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 that.
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.
11Sleater-Kinney
Dig Me Out


Anyone watch Portlandia? Seeing Carrie in a sketch show is pretty weird/awesome.
12Battles
Mirrored


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.
14Mew
Frengers


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
Cosmogramma


Another 2010 favorite.
20Converge
Petitioning the Empty Sky


Still better than Jane Doe.
21Channels
Waiting for the Next End of the World


J. Robbins can do no wrong.
22Superchunk
Majesty Shredding


I also enjoyed this.
23The Black Keys
Brothers


Is anyone else annoyed at how much The Black Keys have been selling out?
24Daughters
Daughters


No reason, just Daughters.
25Fugazi
Repeater


Duh.
