Best from 2010

29 Oct

With the year coming to a close it’s time for my first cumulative best of list. Compared to last year (Phoenix, The XX, Passion Pit etc.) this year has been a lot less exciting – but that doesn’t mean there hasn’t been some good music. So here it is – my top 15 albums from the year.
