Best of 2010, Vancouver Edition

2010 is almost over and its time for "best of the year" lists. For this week’s episode I've picked my favorite albums released by local bands this year and played my favorite songs from those albums. It was really easy and really hard at the same time to pick songs to play. There is an amazing music scene in Vancouver and there are lots of brilliant bands, but I had to leave off some of them, because its impossible to fit all those great songs in one hour of radio show. Here's the list of all the albums by Vancouver bands released this year, that I've listened and liked:

Top 5:

    1. The Dreadnoughts - Polka's Not Dead  

    2. The Hextalls - Get Smashed!

    3. Cambridge - This Is Not A Victory


    4. Invasives - Desk Job At Castle Dracula

    5. McRackins - It Ain't Over Easy

Other great 2010 releases by the bands from Vancouver, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED: 

  • Annihilator - Annihilator

  • Baptists - Drown Your Sorrows EP

  • Battle Snakes - On Fire '99

  • Big John Bates - Bad Pussy 7''

  • Carpenter - Sea To Sky

  • D.O.A. - Talk - Action = 0

  • The Deadcats - Look Like Hell!

  • Grave Maker - Ghosts Among Men
