The Warning is pretty popular everywhere. Sadly, I've never been able to get into it or One Life Stand, in spite of the fact that I dig electro in general. I can't quite pinpoint what the problem is. Maybe it's the beats, maybe the vocals, I don't know. Just not a Hot Chip fan.

Electro has been doing really well this year though; LCD Soundsystem, Pantha du Prince, Phantogram, Four Tet, Caribou and Crystal Castles all made great records, and I haven't heard Ratatat or M.I.A.'s new records yet, which I expect to be very good.

One Life Stand is a noticeable decline from The Warning, which I am a fan of, COBL.

So far, these have been the notable releases of '10 for me:

1. This Is Happening by LCD Soundsystem
2. High Violet by The National
3. Plastic Beach by Gorillaz
4. Romance Is Boring by Los Campesinos!
5. Brothers by The Black Keys
6. Forgiveness Rock Record by Broken Social Scene
7. Contra by Vampire Weekend
8. Infinite Arms by Band of Horses
9. Sea of Cowards by The Dead Weather
10. Broken Bells by Broken Bells

Hot Chip will break your legs, snap off your head
Hot Chip will put you down, under the ground

"Slush" may be one of the worst songs I've ever had the misfortune of hearing.

Ever.

It's terrible, but I'm so bad with song titles. I can never remember which song is my favorite on this one. "I Feel Better"?

I guess 2010 is shaping up to become a much more interesting year individual songs-wise.

What part of Pitchfork giving music a 6.8 do you not understand? It's all bad.

I picked up a used copy of that Bettie Serveert album the other week. I hadn't heard anything by them since my college days, but bought it on your recommendation. It's good stuff.

Well then you get a too! And a .

I think you may actually like Bare Stripped Naked (their previous release) as well. I have a version that comes with a DVD but it's a good listen regardless. As the title suggests, it's mostly acoustic material, with a couple reworkings of old songs.

It's always been my opinion that, usually, when you say "there's been no good music released this year," you're just not looking hard enough...there's perpetually incredible music being put out, no matter the year.

So far, this is what I've been enjoying, in no particular order after the first five or so, and of course, this is subject to change significantly by the end of the year:

1. The National - High Violet
2. Shearwater - The Golden Archipelago
3. Fang Island - Fang Island
4. Toro y Moi - Causers of This
5. Broken Social Scene - Forgiveness Rock Record
6. The Radio Dept. - Clinging to a Scheme
7. Four Tet - There Is Love In You
8. Sleigh Bells - Treats
9. Beach House - Teen Dream
10. The Depreciation Guild - Spirit Youth
11. Band of Horses - Infinite Jest
12. Reflection Eternal - Revolutions Per Minute
13. Tame Impala - InnerSpeaker
14. Dessa - A Badly Broken Code
15. The Morning Benders - Big Echo
16. Nas and Damian Marley - Distant Relatives
17. Lemonade - Pure Moods
18. Baths - Cerulean (technically not released until June 22nd on anticon...anybody who mentioned Flying Lotus' Cosmogramma should definitely check this out as well)
