Rough Trade's top 10 albums of 2010

Hmm: not doing bad really all things considered.

Swim is very pleasant. The Gil Scott-Heron is a triumph. These New Puritans are an inevitable 'Thank You Marc Riley', and if I'd been able to track down a copy of the Caitlin Rose I'd say the same for her too (sadly every time I've been in a decent record store since it came out it hasn't been in stock).

I'm ignorant of both Phosphorescent and Darkstar, but the Charlotte Gainsbourg is delightful. Wonderfully breathy vocals.

Not heard the last three, so apologies to Gold Panda, Wild Nothing and Tame Impala. You may hit my E-Music acquisitions depending on how many great new songs Marc Riley and Tom Robinson keep playing...
