Outroversion’s Best of 2010 Playlist

Posted on the 01 January 2011 by Outroversion @outroversion

In a year where reality bludgeoned spirits relentlessly the world of music that has faithfully offered escape for our entire lives welcomed us with a blanket of amazing new music that seemed unlikely when you consider the high standard of 2009. From the outset it threw the new Vampire Weekend our way before New Pornographers and MGMT came in with genuine album of the year contenders, this was before you could even contemplate thinking about festival season in which the libertines took the pressure off everyone by turning the spotlight back on them. No new music but hope for English music. The summer saw the return of big hitters Gaslight Anthem building on their album of the decade with a competent effort. Mark Ronson and Cee Lo Green soundtracked the dregs of the season with a couple of tracks that the year will definitely be noted for. On the subject of great tracks, Dog is Dead turned up with little fanfare and a sack of catchy tunes at numerous events and walking away with the title of ones to watch in 2011. Stars in the ascendancy were Brighton’s Blood Red Shoes who toured endlessly in the summer backed up by a brilliant album and an already impressive back catalogue. Fun’s Jack Antonoff fronted Steel Train were the best surprise for me, their third album sounding like a flawless debut. Conor Oberst has slowly been dusting off Bright Eyes and released two impossibly resonant tracks that only heightened the anticipation for his 2011 release.
