You can’t do these rundowns without “glaring” omissions, especially not in years as strong as 2010 has proved to be. Cue cries of “What? No.. Fall / Melvins / Will Oldham“.
It’s hard. This year’s Fall album was really good. The new Melvins album was brilliant. But there’s a new Fall album, a new Melvins album, pretty much every year so inevitably I end up taking them for granted. Your Future Our Clutter might in some ways be better than the Sleigh Bells album or the Demdike Stare album but for all that it’s another Fall album to go with the DOZENS (seriously) I already have. So it got lost.
I love Will Oldham. Again, I’ve got an insane amount of his music. But he’s released about 15 albums in the last decade and they just swamp you. So stuff that’s fresh and new will tend to trump something reliably brilliant.
