This is what Last FM says I listened to most last year, and I'm not about to argue.
1. Laura Viers — July Flame.
All this endless beauty:
2. Arcade Fire — The Suburbs
My second favourite album of 2010? OK, I take it back, I will argue with LastFM: the album had at least four great songs, but the number of times I fell asleep on the train only to find it still playing when I woke up suggests it was on bloated side.
Anyway, here's one the great songs:
3. John Grant — Queen of Denmark
Very obviously the best music that Midlake made in 2010.
4. Sun Kil Moon — April
5. Sun Kil Moon — Admiral Fell Promises
6. The xx
7. Bonobo — Black Sands
8. Biosphere — Wireless
9. Tame Impala — Innerspeaker
