2010 music

A total of 124 new albums heard in 2010, most via online streaming from Last FM, Magnatune and Jamendo. Those I think are worth repeated listenings I've linked to under the cut. No album really did it for me in 2010, although I've developed a liking for French dub reggae – the album Dub by the duo Kene Busma, about whom I know nothing except that they hail from Sarcelles, has two outstanding tracks that have probably been my most listened-to of the year, 'Riddim' and 'Praas Dubik System'. As usual, ambient stuff in all its huge variety has been what I lean towards most of the time but the only ambient CD I actually bought last year, because its improvisational structure seems to open up creative possibilities in my head, is Balmorhea's excellent and melancholy Constellations.
