Top Ten TwentyTen – Music

January 10, 2011

As 2010 is over, it’s natural to look back and sum up the best parts of the last year. Our first list is our top tracks & artists in 2010. Old lovers and new-found love has made it to this list.

1.ROBYN

But off course ! Old love never dies. We grew up wanting to be Robyn in the 90ies and now almost 15 years later we still wanna be her. With this swedish music genius’ three album releases this year, she has ruled the music scene.

It’s difficult to pick just one song, but “Hang with me” is one of our favorites. But also worth mentioning (been played a couple of times…) is “None of them”, “Dancehallqueen”, “Dancing on my own” & “Love Kills”.  So If you haven’t downloaded  “Bodytalk part 3” , do it NOW ! Most def one of the best albums of 2010.

2.Susanne Sundfør

This norwegian is on our second place, her concept album “The Brothel” is one of the best norwegian albums releases this year. Lars Hornveth (Jaga Jazzist-boyfriend) has produced some of the tracks on this album and together with Sundfør he has created a dark & fantastic sound universe. The best track is “It’s all gone tomorrow” but the whole album is amazing and also worth mentioning is “The Brothel”, “Lullaby” and “O Master”.

3. James Blake

First male on the list. James cover of  Feist’s “Limit to your love” is by far one of our favorite tracks this year. Also check “CMYK” out.

4.Gorillaz

One word – Brilliant ! 2D, Murdoc, Russell and Noodles have outdone themselves. Probably Damon Albarns best work so far and guest stars like Lou Reed, Snoop Dogg, Bobby Womack and Mos Def make it difficult to pick one song. But for the sake of a short list, we’ve picked “On Melancoly Hill”, other favorites of ours are “Stylo” and “Rhinestone eyezs” . “Plastic Beach” is one of the best album releases of 2010. Watch out for “The Fall” album – The worlds first Ipad-album !

5.Gayngs

Gayngs features members of Bon Iver, Megafaun, The Rosebuds, Solid Gold, Doomtree & more. Their debut album “Relayted” has been played on repeat throughout this year and “The Gaudy side of town” our pick for this list.

6.Sleigh Bells

New L<3ve ! Fuzz guitars and funky beats makes us love Sleigh Bells, this noisy electronic pop-duos übercool style make it easy to pick Derek E. Miller & Alexis Krauss for this list. Their debut album “Treats” makes us wish we were 20 years old again. Our pick for this list is “Infinity guitars” but could easily had been “Kids”, “Tell’em”, “Rill Rill” , “Riot Rhythm”, “Have a heart” or “Crown on the ground”. Enjoy !

7.Salem

New love ! The basic melody of Salem’s “King Night” is a choir doing “O Holy Night” and this bands sound seems to fit a cathedral. It’s dark, powerful and fantastic. We’ve picked the title song from their debut album “King Night”. We also recommend “Asia” and “Frost” .

8.Crystal Castles

My oh my. The noisier it get’s the better it is ! We’ve picked “Not in Love” featuring Robert Smith of The Cure. Also check out “Baptism” & “Celestica”

9.Beach House

Best chillout album of the year. We’ve picked “Lover of mine” from their latest album “Teen dream” for this list and we are honored that Beach House made a song in our honour – “Norway”  The whole album is perfect for late breakfasts and Sundays.

10.Kanye West

Last but not least – Kanye West. It wouldn’t be a complete list without any hip hop and Kanye is our man. “My beatiful dark twisted fantasy” continous where 2007’s “Graduation” left off . We’ve picked “Power” to top this list off.
