add salt's tracks of 2010


So we're at the end of another great year in music. But I must say, I didn't lose any sleep over this list. I wasn't waking up in cold sweats debating a rank change or a replacement. Everyone had a proper spot. It seems to me that the excellent tracks this year have been really excellent, and the new players very innovative....but there wasn't a great deal of either of them. I think we need an influx next year, (come on! Make my job difficult!), and we'll probably get it, when the lo-fi movement morphs into twelve other indiscernible genres, like lo-glo and fi-fi. I mean Sufjan just autotuned. Maybe Kanye will try chillwave. We have to wait and see. Until then, it's been a pleasure exposing what's new and good and now.

Saw Tune Yards perform live in Philly last spring. "Do you wanna live" was AMAZING. I highly recommend it.
