Not everyone listens to the same music as you.
Oh boy...here comes the onslaught of pretentious lists of albums nobody's heard of before.  Let's see who can top who with most obscure albums (above post not included since most are recognizable). 

yes they do . . . because now everybody's me

Now everybody's into what I do
Steve Albini, John? and Frank Sinatra sound exactly like me
I even set up a duo with Julio Iglesias
It was called Me and Julio Down By the Crackhouse
'Cause even Julio Iglesias is me
I have the number one album
I have all the albums
'Cause now everybody's me!

All these metal releases listed and no Salome? Easily my favorite metal album this year.

Still nowhere near having a complete list here.

These always stress me out more than they should. That's because I can't remember everything I've heard. Worse yet, I always manage to leave something very good off my list. Plus, I still haven't heard everything relevant for my purposes. Very frustrating and embarrassing, especially if I decide to create an official Air Atlantic Underground Radio Best of list. So, here's just a working list in completely random order of my personal favorite releases of 2010.

Zaza - "Cameo" (EP)
Highspire - "Aquatic"
Presents For Sally - "A Touch Of Joy, A Touch Of Sadness"
Insect Guide - "Dark Days & Nights"
Stellarium - "Stellarium"
Soundpool - "Mirrors In Your Eyes"
Malory - "Pearl Diver"
Ceremony - "Rocket Fire"
The Black Angels - "Phosphene Dream"
Laboratory Noise - "When Sound Generates Light"
The Black Ryder - "Buy The Ticket, Take The Ride"
Dragontears - "Turn On Tune In Fuck Off"
Tears Run Rings - "Distance"
Whirl - "Distressor" (EP)
Air Formation - "Nothing To Wish For (Nothing To Lose)"
Seasonscollide ? "Disappearing Reappearing"
Scarlet Youth - "Goodbye Doesn't Mean I'm Gone"
Ghost Society - "The Back Of His Hands, Then The Palms"
Bon Accord - "Honeydew" (EP)
Sway - "This Was Tomorrow"
Butterfly Explosion - "Lost Trails"
The Vandelles - "Del Black Aloha"
Cotton Club - "Between Drones And Daisies"
Between The Cities Are Stars - "Between The Cities Are Stars"
Whatever Hippie Bitch - "Whatever Hippie Bitch"
Foxtail Somersault - "Reflection" (EP)



*I'm saving the new one by Secret Shine, "The Beginning And The End", for 2011 since it was released only about a week ago and most people won't hear it until then.

Jaguar just made Jeffml cry.


P.S. you have to hear that Jefre Cantu-Ledesma album I mentioned in the 2010 albums thread. A majority of the tracks sound like variations on a "To Here Knows When" sounding theme.

No, not really. Killsaly has heard of them and I would in no way consider him a 'nobody'. Besides, I can't help it that all of those people who listen to these releases don't bother with this board. Most aren't local anyway so no real need for them to hang around here.

Except for one short very ambient track, I haven't heard it yet. Looking forward to it though.

I want to hear that Salome record! They need to play some more shows too. One more album to add to my pretentious metal list is Unearthly Trance - V that thing was vicious, I can't believe I forgot about it.
Wilderness heart was cool too. Also I'm glad to see others dug the new Killing Joke. It was between that and Wino for album of the year for me.
