Best 2010 gigs, albums, EP, songs, videos, portraits

So, we are 10 days before 2011. Many things happened this year! Originally, I didn't plan to make this blog a music blog, but a place where I can share things I enjoy, not only music...  so... a normal blog... Next year, I'll talk about non-music subjects... Like every other music blog, I had to make a list of my favorite bands and releases. When I checked the tops of other blogs and famous websites, it seems that they made tops of the same bands but in a different order, don't you think? That's what I didn't do, because they are so many other great bands which are huge for me and which deserve to be mentioned!! Please check out my favorite bands below in alphabetical order.

Last year... my favorite albums were:
Fairguson - Tales From The 47 Willows
Gaspard Royant - You Can Have Me (If You Want To) / EP
Generationals - Con Law
Great Lake Swimmers - Lost Channels
James Yuill - Turning Down Water For Air
Kings of Convenience - Declaration of Dependance
Local Natives - Gorilla Manor
Maplewood - Yeti Boombox
My First Tooth - Margaret Yen
Noah and The Whale - The First Days of Spring
Revolver - Music For A While
Scott Orr - Ghost Party
The Boy Least Likely To - The Law Of The Playground
The Leisure Society - The Sleeper
The Whitest Boy Alive - Rules
Zee Avi - Zee Avi

2010 was incredible for me! I met so many people! What I enjoyed the most this year are indicated in bold, it depends of course on several details. HERE WE GO!

Live report: 16th December 2010, POKETT(FR) + SAM AMIDON(US) at Espace B, Paris

This was my last concert of the year (I think). Good lineup here: the French band Pokett and the American folk multi-instrumentalist Sam Amidon. The venue was not very crowded, good audience, good artists.
