Best of '10 (vol. III)

The final volume of my favorite songs from 2010, all of which can be found right here.

This mix is further evidence that, despite what the mainstream charts and their indie counterparts would lead one to believe, there's a golden age of music happening right now. You just have to dig a little harder to find it under all the noise.

My only remaining chore for 2010 is to come up with the year's top 20 which, given the awesomeness and awesomosity of the last twelve months, is gonna be an even tougher task than last year's. And a quick note: the apostrophe in The Record's is not a typo; this is not the same band as the late '70s power poppers, but a similarly inclined crew from Italy.

The Jim Jones Revue should top any self-respecting stack of music. Nice one!
