20) Avey Tare - Down There

And artist(s) of the year goes to...

Das Racist! For busting the fuck out with not one, but TWO fantastic full length mixtapes - for free! A sick introduction to the music scene proper. Looking forward to more from these guys.

Runners up are 1) The Republic of Wolves for a super ambitious and amazingly well executed debut LP, Varuna, which was completely self recorded and produced. 2) Baths for coming out of nowhere and winning the hearts of like everyone. 3) The Animal Collective crew, for not only putting out a really neat "visual album", but also doing their own separate things pretty well. And 4) Gorillaz for putting out one pretty sweet album (I'd go so far as to say Empire Ants is a solid contender for song of the year), and having another one on the way. Merry Christmas one and all.

A high-five to Astronautalis for pulling off something I would have otherwise thought very stupid with DANCEHALLHORNSOUND!!!!

EDIT: I would find Nedry a month after I make this list. But fuck me, I knew if I waited around long enough, dubstep would produce something worth listening to, and it turns out that something is Nedrys album Condors. Dubstep trip-hop with oh-so-sultry femme fatale vocals? I put this at spot 6½.

So. 2010, you birthed some really amazing albums, but for the most part, you will go down as pretty forgettable. From about 11 on I really had to stretch.

Any suggestions welcome!
