2010 seems like it was endlessly long. I did so much this year. I finished my second semester of college, I moved to New York, I moved back to Chicago, I blogged, met amazing people, partied, read the Southern Vampire Series, got into thrifting, got a cat, listened to great music and had lots of fun. While I was doing all of that I wore somethings I rather enjoyed, so I thought I would do a recap of my favorite posted outfits.
Since I don't music blog anymore I thought I would post my favorite albums and mixtapes of the year here.
Robyn - Body Talk (Parts 1 - 3) Robyn This is the kind of pop music you won't feel guilty about listening to. The lyrics are great and you will dance all night long.
Erykah Badu - New Amerykah Part Two: Return of The Ankh Erykah Badu always has some interesting things to say about love that I can really relate to, so this album is a win.
LCD Soundsystem - This is Happening I love the lyrics on this cd; they are so funny. Plus you will dance all night if you give it a listen.
Kelis - Flesh Tone Clearly I was trying to dance my way through the year because this is another one of those dance albums with good lyrics.
The Black Keys - Brothers The Black Keys kind of remind me of Cold War Kids (I played and play Loyalty to Loyalty to death), but I think The Black Keys are a bit more toned down and smooth.
JoJo - Can’t Take That Away From Me This is a mixtape, but it could totally be a album. Great R&B music.
Monica - Still Standing Definitely the best R&B album of 2010
Supertoy - Panther This is the only rap album to make my list. I really like rap that takes a different approach. I love the production and the fact that I can relate to the lyrics.
Sleigh Bells - Treats I love new approaches to pop music. This is not over produced, dreamy music; t's loud and guitar heavy instead.
Vampire Weekend - Contra I don't have a very specific reason for liking this album so much other then the fact that it's catchy as hell.
Joanna Newsom - Have One On Me Joanna kind of reminds me of early Regina Spector ( 11:11, Soviet Kitsch) because the lyrics on this album are very unconventional. Both Joanna and Regina show that show that good lyrics can be about more love and lost; they can tell stories.
These are albums I'm listening to, but am not sure if I'm completely in love with yet.
Super Toy - You Love it
Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings - I Learned the Hard Way
Kanye West - My beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy
Laura Marling - I Speak Because I Can
Janelle Monae - The ArchAndroid
