  1. Turntable Kitchen :: The Top Albums Of 2010

    2010 was a great year for new music.  Exciting new bands and artists popped up by the boat load all over the Internet, and I previously documented many of those new bands on Turntable Kitchen’s Top EPs of 2010 and Top 7 Vinyl Releases of 2010.  And while my favorite EPs and 7″ singles were primarily Continue…

  2. Turntable Kitchen :: The Top EPs of 2010

    As a matter of personal opinion, I think year-end lists should distinguish between LPs and EPs.  After all, EPs are treated differently by pretty much everyone: artists, consumers and critics.  Indeed, most EPs offer very different experiences from full length records.  Musicians, for example, have historically chose to use EPs as a way to release Continue…

  3. Turntable Kitchen :: The Top 7″ Vinyl Releases of 2010

    As you are aware, there is a non-negotiable clause in every music-blogger’s blogging contract that requires us to prepare our yearly “Best of” lists around this time of year.  Nonetheless, there is no requirement that we create three separate year-end lists, and yet that is exactly what I plan to do.  Call me an “over-achiever” Continue…

  4. Musical Pairings’ Best of 2010 (so far)

    Twenty-ten has proven to be a pretty fantastic year for music so far, and with half of the year already behind us, I decided it was time to put together my list of the best of 2010 so far.  Let me know what I missed, what I overrated, what I underrated, or what I got Continue…

What Continue…

  6. R.I.P. Jimmy Lee Lindsey (a.k.a. Jay Reatard)

    From Matador Records:“We are devastated by the death of Jimmy Lee Lindsey Jr., aka Jay Reatard. Jay was as full of life as anyone we’ve ever met, and responsible for so many memorable moments as a person and artist. We’re honored to have known and worked with him, and we will miss him terribly.” Like Continue…

  7. Musical Pairings: The Top Ten Indie Rock Albums of 2009

    Creating my Top Ten list is always difficult because I find myself struggling with whether I want to fill it with what I believe are objectively the best albums of 2009 or what I know are my subjective top albums of the year. Although those two lists would have a lot of overlap – they Continue…

  8. Musical Pairings @ eating/sf: The Best Free Mixtapes/Albums of 2009

    Like music fans everywhere, I enjoy the ritual of sitting down at the end of the year and ranking my favorite releases of that year and then comparing my list to my friends’ list. My friends and I even created a “music club” that began as an excuse to get together, eat pizza, drink beer, Continue…
