A bit late but, as they say, better late than never. Of course, with the website still in it’s infancy, it’s forgivable.
The following is a list of Air Atlantic Underground Radio’s Best Releases of 2010.
They are in no particular order nor are they necessarily all 2010 releases. Instead, they are what Air Atlantic Underground Radio considers the best newer releases for the 2010 listening year.
You have no idea how much I hate making these lists. How do I remember everything for a whole year? Which do the station’s listeners and I like the best? What is my mood at the time and how it affects my thoughts on what I’m listening to at any given moment? Was it released in the US this year and last in the UK? Screw it! (Guess you can tell that High Fidelity isn’t high on my list of Favorite Movies.) I probably forgot some very good releases and I do apologize in advance. Please feel free to add comments below on your favorites for 2010.
Do be aware that I’m saving a release or two for next year that were technically released in 2010. The kind of stuff that squeezed out just before the year changed over but gets most of its play the following year. (A certain shiny band comes to mind and has already been logged on 2011′s list.)
A big THANK YOU to the following bands for helping Air Atlantic Underground Radio gaze, drone, shimmer and rock throughout 2010 and into the future.
