Best of '10 (Vol. I)

I've got my annual summer mix coming along soon, but in the meantime that role can be filled by this collection of my favorite songs from the year (so far) . There's nothing on here that you won't already expect from this blog: power pop, garage, Americana, glam, and punk all mixed, matched, masticated, and otherwise mulched. Goes well with potato salad too, which is of prime importance 'cuz it's time for some of that hot patio action. Check it out.

Great blog. Just ordered the Mynabirds and Nick Curran releases. Looking forward to your summer mix.

Awesome! Thanks for the good word. And those are two great albums you just ordered. Mynabirds have a Dusty-in-Memphis quality to 'em but filtered through an indie sensibility. Nick Curran just flat out rocks, recalling giants like Little Richard and the Sonics (meaning he had me at hello). Cheers!
