RetroSpector’s TOP 20 – 2010

Here’s what struck a sonic chord with me in 2010. As ever, the official APC chart is after the jump. Happy Nu Year Y’all!!!!!!!!!

#01 Reborn Identity – Sweet Mountain High [link]
Still puts a hole in this Soul!!!!
#02 Massive Attack – Paradise Circus (Gui Boratto Remix) [link]
Hands down, the finest remix of 2010. Even made Hope Sandoval sound like she had a pulse.
#03 Gil Scott-Heron– Me And The Devil [link]
Dare ya to listen to this backwards…

#04 BRAT – Fame [link]
Possibly the finest Bowie boot ewa IMO!
#05 iamamiwhoami – y [link]
Weird & wonderful viral heaven.
#06 Bynar– Mullholland Empire (Dark Mix) [link]
Dark & moody, just the way I like it. Did I mention BRILLIANT!
#07 Complicated Universal Cum– I can hardly wait [link]
Genius video concept. The track ain’t half bad either.
#08 The Kleptones – Uptime/Downtime [link]
Downtime, arguably the finest collection of boots, ewwa

#09 Fissunix – Doin’ The Jumpo [link]
Take it to da fridge!

Release the bootz!!!!!!
#11 APC Allstars vs The Young Punx – Mashed, Popped, Punked [link]
The album that proved Punx Not Dead!
#12 The Phenomenal Handclap Band – Baby [link]
The warmest fuzziest track of 2010, aw shucks…

Emotional electronica at its finest.
#14 MAXENCE CYRIN – Around the world – (Daft Punk piano cover) [link]
From the album NOVÖ PIANO, hits all the right notes…

Haunting as hell

Van Lennon, now that’s inspired

The Dream-Team strikes again!

Dark & Occultish, in a good way…

Weird ritualistic, all-female video or avant-garde shampoo advert . You decide?
