The Essential Albums Of 2010 (So Far)

So here we are, nearly halfway through 2010. And what a year for music it has been, both locally and internationally. Since I love my music lists, I figured I’d put together one of the must-have albums of the year so far.

I absolutely love all of these records, and if you haven’t got a hold of them all I strongly suggest you do. In an effort not to screw over my future self this list is in alphabetical order so as not to lock me in when it comes to end of year lists. And yeah some of these are EPs, mostly because a lot of the Australian music I’ve listened to this year is from EPs.

Full list after the jump. Hover over album covers for the artist and album name. Have I missed any? If you have different albums you’d put in the list please drop me a comment and let me know.

  1. No love for Innerspeaker? Definitely my favourite album of the year so far, followed closely by High Violet.

    • Haha I figured I’d get called out on this- to be honest I’ve just never really got Tame Impala. I want to like them, I really do, and I recognise they’re dam good at what they do, but for some reason they just haven’t clicked with me. This is why I haven’t written an album review yet, I’m waiting for them to click. I saw them live a year ago and it was the same deal, I just didn’t really ‘get’ them.

      • I can understand that, everything i’d heard from them before innerspeaker, except for their cover of remember me, didn’t really do it for me. However, the minute I heard Runaway Houses City Clouds I had that moment that you’ve been waiting for, suddenly they just clicked and everything sounded wonderful. Infact, they’ve probably made their way into my top 3 Splendour acts, something I never imagined happening.
