Podcast: Dominick’s Best of 2010

3 Jan

Now that 2010 is actually over, John and I will be sharing our favorite songs and albums of 2010 via podcast; this week belongs to me and the following will belong to him. Paring my list down to a reasonable length (that is, short enough to fit on a CD, though I’m sure I’m flattering myself by imagining that people actually will take the time to burn it) was difficult, which certainly says something good about this year’s releases. As I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I’ve abandoned the whole year-end list nonsense, having found ranking albums to be both reductive and unproductive, but I feel that a podcast like this is a good alternative. These are the songs I love the most from the albums I love the most. I want only to share. That said, if I had to encourage you to go out and buy only one album that was released this year, it’d probably be Public Strain by Women, both because it’s phenomenal and because I’m hoping that good album sales will encourage them to reunite (they broke up a couple months ago following a brother-on-brother onstage brawl; dramatic, right?). Anyhow… enjoy! And be sure to check back next week to hear from John, who will doubtless offer an entirely different perspective on the year in music. – Dominick
