The Veils

Almost every other band in Baeble's giant concert catalogue looks stupid compared to Mumford & Sons (see previous post), but The Veils... they hold their own...

Mumford & Sons live

I hated Mumford before I saw them live. The flipping banjo all over their album made me want to throw things. But they're so so so so so ridiculously good live that I've become completely accustomed to the banjo, and embrace them on record now too.

This live concert on the Baeble website is awesome. Watch it. (Yes, the 'full' video is an hour-long set. AMAZING.)

Top 9 Albums of 2010

I get stuck every time I try to name a number 10. It seems to be a bazillion-way tie.

1 OK Go - Of The Blue Colour Of The Sky
2 The Xcerts - Scatterbrain
3 30 Seconds To Mars - This Is War (released December 2009, shhh)
4 You, Me And Everyone We Know - Some Things Don't Wash Out
5 My Chemical Romance - Danger Days: The True Lives Of The Fabulous Killjoys
6 Steel Train - Steel Train
7 Vampire Weekend - Contra
8 Kids In Glass Houses - Dirt
9 Fun. - Aim And Ignite

Listen to all of them (except Steel Train) on Spotify in one convenient playlist
Listen to a Steel Train song on YouTube (yes, it's a shame they're not on Spotify... but if you like it, the album's only £5.49 on iTunes last time I checked)
