Best New Artists Of 2010

The Drums

This band came out of nowhere and surprised me in the best way possible. Their pop is so enjoyable, sweet, and thoughtful. This band is (cliche word coming folks) magical.

Mumford & Sons

These English folk rockers are such a great new band. Great things are happening for them now and I believe they are a band that will last a long time. They really have a unique sound. Marcus Mumford sings with such raw emotion. Their album came out early in the year and has been playing all year long for me.

Surfer Blood


Freelance Whales

Y La Bamba

Sleigh Bells



Fang Island

Frank (Just Frank)
Mimicking Birds
Active Child
Joy Formidable

Toro Y Moi – Still Sound

Combines 70’s, 80’s, and the 21st century wonderfully.
