Best of 2010: Tracks

December 24, 2010

My final list of the year is far and away the one I’ve spent the most time on, gradually amassing single songs and album favourites over the year, before methodically collating them and frantically finding any number of last minute gems. I’ve whittled down a good few gigabytes worth of music into my favourite fifty tracks of the last twelve months and included a video for each (a * denotes a prize-winning vid) so you can judge for yourself whether they’re worthy…

1              Tensnake / Coma Cat

2              Friendly Fires / Hold On (Holy Ghost Cover)

3              Fourtet / Love Cry or Angel Echoes

4              Chemical Brothers / Another World or Swoon (Boys Noize Mix) *

5              Booka Shade / Regenrate or Teenage Spaceman

6              !!! (Chk Chk Chk) / The Most Certain Sure or AM/FM *

7              Caribou / Odessa or Sun

8              Trentemoller / Silver Surfer Ghost Rider Go! or Sycamore Feeling (Gui Boratto Mix) *

15           Erol Alkan and Boys Noize / Avalanche

Couldn’t find a video, so here’s a LINKY

39           Gold Panda / Same Dream China *

44           Massive Attack / Pray For Rain or the Gui Boratto mix of Paradise Circus

45          Discreet Unit / Shake Your Body Down and Twilight

46          Vampire Weekend / Holiday

47          Maximum Balloon / Groove Me

48          Danger Mouse & Sparklehorse / Little Girl

49          Chilly Gonzales / Never Stop

50          Martin Buttrich / Hoochie Mama

I know for a fact that I’ve missed a whole bunch of worthy songs, but I’ve had enough of list-making by this point, so that’ll have to do until next year. If you want any more from me then here’s my radio show round-up of the year (parts 1 and 2 with 3 coming next week), featuring most of these tracks all mixed up by Walkertron.
