The Best Music of 2010 (according to me)

As the end of the year approaches, many people put together best of lists, most often related to music … so what the hell … here’s my list:

  1. Street Dogs – Street Dogs
  2. Hank Williams III – Rebel Within
  3. The Morning Benders – Big Echo
  4. Dan Sartain – Lives
  5. Sage Francis – LI(F)E
  6. The New Pornographers – Together
  7. The Black Keys – Brothers
  8. The Hold Steady – Heaven Is Whenever
  9. The Gaslight Anthem – American Slang
  10. Kristin Hersh – Crooked

I think one of the main things that threw Kristin Hersh’s latest album over the top for me was the utterly unique way in which it was released … not just as a CD or digital download format, but as a hardcover book which contains full color artwork, lyrics, and an exclusive essay by Kristin on each song. Each copy also comes with a digital code which unlocks a treasure trove of online content, including the full Crooked album, full recording stems for every track allowing fan remixes, track-by-track audio commentary by Kristin, exclusive video content, and outtakes. This full content is only available to fans who purchase the book.
