new mix – rest of the best of 2010 part 1

People have been rightfully hassling me to sum up the best tunes of 2010, which admittedly is part of my job as a member of the ISM community. So, by way of a very late year end chart I put together a quick mix (with a second forthcoming) of my remaining favorite records of last year. I say remaining because this is a supplement, of course, to the three other mixes I posted last year. I banged this out in one shot a couple weeks ago, rinsing as many tunes as I could in an hour to keep the overall feel concise and exciting. The next mix will have a little more breathing room. I should point out that in some cases I may not have actually played my favorite cut on any given 12″, but sometimes tunes just have a way of working themselves into or out of a mix by the very nature of not planning too much. Also, I should point out that the Fanon Flowers record was released in 2009. I don’t know how it snuck into the stack I pulled for this best of 2010 mix, but whatevs. Anyway, enough self-important babbling, I should let the tunes speak for themselves.

Download the mix here.

You can find the tracklist behind the cut. I’ll post a complete “year end chart” after I finish the second mix.

Ten Years Lost

The more things change, the more things stay the same. I could just as well leave this post at that. Ten years ago Tom started this site with the basic idea of highlighting music that is overlooked by other outlets. The same frustrations that brought about the blog still stand. It may seem like we…
