Best of 2010 - Part 2 (continued)

We continue with our 2010 top albums and shows:

Johnathon Puff


1. Interpol - Interpol

An unlikely best of album I'm sure and it took much time to grow on me, but it did a few weeks back. A major improvement over the previous OLTA.

2. Spoon - Transference

Spoon are kings of the studio album. Everything they put out is pure brilliance and this one is no exception.

3. Flying Lotus - Cosmogramma

Clock Catcher pulls you in and it's hard to get out. Flying Lotus's best work to date.


1. Arcade Fire - 8/6/2010 Merriweather Post Pavilion Columbia, MD

My second time seeing them, first at a major venue, and by far the best show I saw of 2010. "Power Out" into "Rebellion" is the best one-two punch I've ever heard.

2. My Morning Jacket - 8/27/2010 The Amphitheater at Station Square Pittsburgh, PA

The best Pittsburgh show. Two hours plus of pure rocking on a beautiful Friday evening at the end of summer. It just doesn't get much better than "Lay Low" next to the Mon and a Pittsburgh backdrop.

3. LCD Soundsystem - 4/16/2010 Empire Polo Fields Indio, CA Coachella

An unexpected dance crazy set at the first show of their 2010 American tour. "Losing My Edge" the clear highlight of the entire weekend with a tribute to GIL SCOTT HERON!
