Best of 2010

So another year has passed and brought us to this. 2010 in review. Here we bring our best of what we heard for the first time in 2010. As you will see, we are always discovering great stuff that we missed in years past. There was a fair bit of consensus on some of the best stuff and there seemed to be some omissions because we thought someone else would bring it.

Anyway, here is the list. The Grooveshark play list is here.
