[Pick of the Week] Top 10 Debut Albums 2009-2010

THE TOP 10 DEBUT ALBUMS 2009-2010

First the Rules: 1)  The album had to be a debut. 2)  This is about the cohesive structure of the album. 3)  These are my opinions...therefore 100% correct.

#1 ) "Up From Below" -- Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeroes

Edward Sharpe climbed to the top of this list to the top of list by having excellent tracks and an amazing 10 person band that play everything from trumpets to accordions to the ukulele.  The album was released in July of 2009.  Here's their hit "Home" below.

#2) "Sigh No More" --Mumford and Sons

This album is a force.  Released in October of 2009, it has steadily climbed onto the radio and has the band virtually sold out on its tour.  Here's the song "Little Lion Man" below.

#3) Broken Bells

Broken Bells features the awesome power of James Mercer, the lead guitarist/vocalist of The Shins and Brian Burton (aka Danger Mouse).   The album was released in March of 2010.  Here's the song "Trap Doors" below.

#4) "Astro Coast" -- Surfer Blood

The name makes you think of metal, but don't be fooled because Surfer Blood is more akin to early Weezer and has put out a fabulous album in January of 2010.  Here's their song "Swim" below:

#5) "Tourist History" -- Two Door Cinema Club

This band takes a little bit to get used to and it has been criticized for its lack of depth, but it really is a great album overall.  It was released in February of 2010.  It has quick sharp notes and very catchy beats.  Check out the song "Tourist History" below:

#6) One eskimO

One eskimO is a band that caught my attention last year when they debuted their self-titled album in September of 2009.  Here's a link for a free download of their awesome some "Kandi."  http://wmmm.radiotown.com/kandi.zip Here's the song "Astronauts" below:

#7)  The Drums

This is an indie band from Brooklyn.  They put out their self-titled debut in June of 2010 and what a killer one it was.  Here is their song "Let's Go Surfing."

#8) Fever Ray

I really can't get enough of the Swedish music front.  Karin Dreijer Andersson  is a wild performer, incorporating masks and costumes into her performances.  Her album is magical and haunting and was released in March of 2009.  Here's her song "When I grow up" below:

#9) "Treats" -- Sleigh Bells

If you're not a fan of the noise pop genre, then stay far away because it's about to get crazy.  It was released in May of 2010.  It's a visceral smack in the face album that take's no prisoners.  It was released in May of 2010. Here's the song "Rill Rill" below:

#10) "Lungs" --Florence and the Machine

This album is product of British pop singer Florence Welch and her work with a variety of different artists.  Rolling Stone writer Jon Dolan wrote about the album that "the best bits feel like being chased through a moonless night by a sexy moor witch."  How about that?  The album was released in July of 2009.  Here's the song "Kiss with a Fist" below:

Honorable Mentions

Here are some bands that are good that didn't make the list.  Let us know if you can think of others to check out! Fools Gold, Bombay Bicycle Club, White Lies, Band of Skulls, The Soft Pack, Everything Everything, The Very Best, Music Go Music, Exit Calm, xx, Japandroids, Tired Pony...

There was just about universal love for this foot-stomper from John Denver. John Denver had hit after hit in the mid 1970s, and this was one of them, goign all the way to #1 in 1975. Go ahead, crank it up, sing it loud and proud. And maybe swing...

World's Worst iPod:Dr. Hook "When You're in Love With a Beautiful Woman"
