Top Albums 2010

This list of fifteen albums is comprised of what I viewed as the most cohesive and entertaining pieces of the 2010 year.  Most albums will be accompanied by a 320 kbps link (my rips for the most part).  It was a good first year for TRN and I look forward to what 2011 has in store.

Warmest wishes,

Sigbrand, Carl

  1. yes man, you always post the same hip labels, try out something more underground

    • I post the same ‘hip’ labels because that is the music that I buy in physical form and instead of aggregating what is already available on the internet (most blogs- not that there is anything wrong with that) I try to provide rips of albums that do not already exist in digital form. But if you have something more underground to share, go right ahead.

    Interesting list. Gotta check out many things from your top 15.

    Xela, Jefre Cantu-Ledesma and Twells & Christensen are also amongst my 2010 favourites. I’ve included Svarte Greiner’s Flare instead, though.

    I meant Erik K Skodvin.

  4. sheesh, you really can’t please some peeps, can you?! anyhow, that Twells & Christensen record is simply incredible – oh, and i’d like to say thanks for all of your efforts – it’s appreciated around these parts!

  5. “Quit posting Stunned tapes and post my super underground music instead!”
