26 jan. 2011, 1h13m par PJ27And once again it's time for Triple J's Hottest 100. Obviously, this list is going to cause many a person to break out it fits of haterage, but no list is ever gonna please everyone.
Once again, I'm doing commentary on this as it's played.
And for 101, just missing out was XXXO by M.I.A.. I thought it might get it, but no such luck, I guess. It was one of the better cuts from her album, but that really isn't saying much. I wouldn't be too surprised to see Born Free make an appearance later.
100. Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever) by Muse
Well, it looks like they let the Twilight fans vote in this again. It's pretty silly stuff, but I'm not too surprised to see it make it's way in here. I had expected it to get higher though.
99. Big by Dead Letter Circus
Not at all surprised to see Dead Letter Circus make it in, since they pretty much filled the void for Australian hard rock this year. I'm expecting that they'll probably make another appearance later with ]One Step.

10-A. LCD Soundsystem- This Is Happening
Listen: Dance Yrself Clean, Drunk Girls
LCD Soundsystem perfectly articulates sexualization and rejection with infectious dance beats and misleading hooks, and shows the vulnerability of aging's melancholy while providing at the same time a danceable catharsis.
10-B. Beach House- Teen Dream
Listen: Zebra, Used to Be
Beach House bring us a classic album filled with deep and poetic lyrics and tunes that seep through with longing. …

2 jan. 2011, 12h15m par scarlover25. Eminem (med Rihanna) – Love The Way You Lie
Efter den genombleka Relapse var Eminem tillbaka med ett hyggligt album som åtminstone innehöll tre riktigt bra låtar.
Eminem och Rihannas röster passar perfekt ihop, och skapar en lika drömsk som hotfull stämning.
24. Tove Styrke – Love You and Leave You
Trots skivindustrins track record att förstöra unga talanger hade jag höga förväntningar på Tove Styrkes första skiva. Men att den skulle bli så smakfull och medryckande; det hade jag inte vågat hoppas.
Tove glider avslappnat in i rollen som Robyn och Lykke Lis lillasyster och levererar med Love You and Leave You en av årets sötaste, skönaste låtar.
23. Teenage Fanclub – Baby Lee
Okay, den här låten kan inte ha kommit 2010 men snarare 1966, någonstans mitt mellan Beach Boys och The Kinks. Men den får vara med i alla fall, för jag kan inte sluta lyssna…
22. Håkan Hellström – 2 steg från paradise
Älskar hur överdrivet, ostentativt skön den här låten är. …
2 jan. 2011, 6h59m par lassaucepanThe title says it. Every day i'm going to pick a song I think represents that day the best and I'll even give a little explanation why.
Reasons I may pick a song:
I listened to it a lot.
I had it in my head.
I was blown away by it.
I discovered it.
I rediscovered it.
I heard it somewhere special.
I listened to the lyrics in a new way.
I learned something about it.
I cried to it.
I saw it performed.
It's a really fucking good song.
Saturday, Jan. 1: Animal Collective - Bluish - Packing all my stuff to leave the place where everyone I love is and used to be, and listening to this song as I do so.
Sunday, Jan. 2: Hockey - Song Away - How ironic would it be if you played this song at 11:59 p.m.? Oh wait...
Monday, Jan. 3: Athlete - Superhuman Touch - Smooth indie rock, put me to sleep while I try to block out all this incessant noise.
Tuesday, Jan. 4: Explosions in the Sky - So Long, Lonesome - I'm going to have to agree with those who say song titles don't matter. …

30 déc. 2010, 20h56m par CvaldaVessalisSorry for the lateness... Christmas always seems to mess me about; at least I've had enough time off to get most of this list sorted!! Anywho, enough rabid transgressions, please avail yourselves of positions 50-26 of my year end chart!
50. Love King by The-Dream
Superstar R&B singer/songwriter/producer strikes again with another album of luscious, sensuous, state-of-the-art slow-jam grooves that even at their absolute nasty-filthiness are shot through with enough intelligent sexiness for you to at the very least nod your head in appreciation. Following through on sophomore album Love vs. Money's themes of love, sex and wealth as well as further establishing his persona as the, well, "love king", but without such an epic narrative throughline, the Prince influences in particular have never been so pronounced as before, but the fact that Terius Youngdell Nash aims so high and still manages to pull it all off for most…
29 déc. 2010, 19h45m par pppppedramAnd it gets really tough when it’s December; Even tougher when you’ve had a tight-scheduled school work for the past 4 months in a new country. I’m flying back to my home for holidays. That must be fun. I’ve luckily had 3 free days to breathe a little and come down with my end-year lists. To be honest, I’m always on the verge of acting biased when it comes to making such lists. Fortunately I survive many of them, including this year. I had to eliminate some of my favorites in sacrifice of these precious songs and albums. 10 items for each is truly not enough space to scribble out all that beauty. But top-100 lists can be a drag most of the time, too. So here they are. My best music of 2010. The word “best” can also be misleading. “Favorite” is sorta better, but who cares? Here are my favorite albums:
01 Gonjasufi :: A Sufi and a Killer
02 Deerhunter :: Halcyon Digest
03 Tame Impala :: Innerspeaker
04 Forest Swords :: Dagger Paths LP / Rattling Cage EP

The Top 10 Albums of 2010
I’m going to try and keep this introduction short (I'll fail), so let me just say that it was an exceptionally good year for music. So many great records were released this year! And also, too much records were released this year. It seems that the internet and tolerance towards lo-fi DIY has increased our collective iTunes libraries significantly, this year more than ever, and sometimes it can be nice to stop speed-dating records and dwell on it a little, let it surprise you. That's also the reason there are only 10 albums on this list (plus another ten which deserve honorable mentions). Twenty albums is enough to spend a year with, if your ambition is to actually listen to and not just peruse these songs.
It was a year of extremes, though, wasn't it? Volume levels either shot way into the red or barely appeared at all, songs were either overstuffed with ideas or almost uncomfortably minimal. …
