Hello anyone and everyone!! Well, I have had a more than crazy few months since I last blogged about my favorites of 2010 thus far... Music wise, it's been more than eventful, with plenty more amazing releases to listen to (but obviously I'll be getting on to that a little later!) and, most excitingly, the seeming return of the music video as a trendy art-form. True, some bands do take it upon themselves to unleash at least one amazing video for each of their albums these days, but we've already been spoiled-more-than-silly with audio-visual accompaniments to some rather brilliant (or not really) singles this year. Contenders for the year-end blogs include Vampire Weekend
's celeb-heavy tennis match for Giving Up The Gun
; Hot Chip
and director Pete Serafinowicz's boyband execution parody for I Feel Better
; and, last but by certainly-no-means-least, Romain Gavras and M.I.A.
's blisteringly brilliant clip for Born Free
that really has to be seen to be believed... …
