Best Of ’10: Josh Ritter

Josh Ritter – So Runs the World Away

This is another album that jumps out at me when I think about 2010. Especially because I saw most of these songs performed live, they’ve got a special place in my heart. From the beautifully told, somber tale of “The Curse” to the upbeat sing-along, “Lantern”, Josh Ritter brings more gorgeous lyrics and unique compositions to our ears with So Runs the World Away.

Favorite tracks: “The Curse”, “Change Of Time”, “Folk Bloodbath”, “Lark”

Best Of ’10: The New Pornographers

The New Pornographers – Together

I’m starting to gather my thoughts about the best music of 2010. While this album may not necessarily be my #1, it IS the first that comes to mind. The New Pornographers delivered more exceptionally crafted songs on this record and I remember listening in my car over and over again. I loved how it made me feel like I was going somewhere important or I was on a mission. There  are many a solid tune on this album and it’s sure to be high on my list.

Favorite tracks: “Crash Years”, “Sweet Talk”, “We End Up Together”
