Music 2010 - So Far, So Awesome

2010 is shaping up to be a fantastic kick-off to the next decade in music. I'm looking forward to including several 2010 albums on my best of the decade list in about 9 1/2 years. Here are some of the albums that I am loving so far (in no particular order):

High Violet, The National
Destroyer of the Void, Blitzen Trapper
Contra, Vampire Weekend
Astro Coast, Surfer Blood
If I Had a Hi-Fi, Nada Surf
Transference, Spoon
Brothers, The Black Keys
Foxy Shazam, Foxy Shazam
Realism, The Magentic Fields
Big Echo, Morning Benders
Hippies, Harlem

Still on the way are albums from The Walkmen, Tom Petty, Johnny Flynn, Sun Kil Moon, Arcade Fire, Interpol, Ryan Bingham, and The Strokes among others. Un-freakin-believable!
