Episode 291 – It Is Shaping Up

SPECIAL PATREON/DONATION THANK YOU TO JEFFREY FIELDS, BRYAN CHILDS, GARY STAFFORD, JOHN MONDICK, JASON FITCH and JAY STOTT FOR THEIR SUPPORT!

Honestly, I felt like 2016 was beginning as a mediocre year for music. So much great music came out last year, that this year was almost guarantee to average. But I’m starting to change my mind. So much good stuff is headed (and your) way. Hopefully after you hear the music in today’s episode you’ll feel the same way. Enjoy!

Top 23 Albums of 2010

First, the explaination: I had to apply some rules to keep this list as “fair” as possible.

– No EP’s. As I said before, I am looking for quality AND quantity. And obviously more quantity makes room for more quality. So, I apologize to those who only released EP’s this year.

– Why 23 albums? Susan Bauer Lee (of Tim Lee 3) and I had a small facebook posting “conversation” about the fact that EVERYONE has a TOP 10 or 20 or 30 list. Why not go with an odd number? And I didn’t want to go as high as 30, so 23 seems like a fair number.

– I’m not numbering them. This is a Top 23 LIST. Not a countdown. So, they are listed alphabetically.

The list:

30dB
One Man Show

6 Day Bender
E’ville Fuzz

Band Of Horses
Infinite Arms

Doc Daily & The Magnolia Devil
Victims, Enemies & Old Friends

Glossary
Feral Fire

Harvest Kings
Cardboard Crows

Mat D.
Plank Road Drag

Mic Harrison And The High Score
Great Commotion

Michael Quinn and the Bourbon Kings
Whiskey Rebellion

Motel Drive
Motel Drive

Mumford & Sons
Sigh No More

Robert Plant
Band Of Joy

Sidewalk Dave
Gold Liquid Mischief

The Avett Brothers
I And Love And You

The Famous
Come Home To Me

The Gaslight Anthem
American Slang

The Kerosene Kondors
Sixteen Seasons

The Worrymen
The Worrymen

Tim Barry
28th & Stonewall

Tim Lee 3
Raucous Americanus

Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
Damn The Torpedoes (Deluxe Edition)
(Yeah, it’s a re-issue, but it came out in 2010, deal with it.)

Truckstop Darlin’
Truckstop Darlin’

– Two Cow Garage
Sweet Saint Me

So, there you have it. Like other lists that I have done in the past, I am expecting some of the unprofessional indie bands who didn’t make the list to contact me and complain. My e-mail is Von@AmericanaRoots.com

Take care. I’ll talk to you all on Thursday with a new episode of The Americana Rock Mix. It’s a Christmas edition.
