Sounds of 2010

Vampire Weekend's Contra is a good album. It has a couple of catchy singles (my favorite is definitely White Sky), but it's not an amazing album. I don't know. I just expected it to cause a bigger impact on me, but the truth is: I'm not really giving it so many listens. On the other hand, there is not a single track that I completely hate, and some songs like Holiday grew on me a little bit. So perhaps Contra will enjoy the same kind of staying power that Phoenix's Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix had last year. Only time will tell...
I was taking a look at the BBC's artists of 2010. I remember last year when I fell in love with Little Boots because of this list. This year, all the bets are on Ellie Goulding, and I think that she totally deserves it. She has a very melodic voice, it reminds me of Bjork in a good way. Also, her songs are electro, but they don't sound like copies of La Roux or just "more of the same".
Marina & The Diamonds is also pretty good. The aggressive style of her music reminds me of La Roux and that probably explains why I listened to her so much, but I don't know. It's just not that different from so many other acts.
Delphic sounds good, but overall pretty generic. Like copy of a copy, you know what I mean? I miss Klaxons... Friendly Fires? Meh!
The new Hot Chip album is pretty good. Most songs are pretty decent. I was never their biggest fan, but I'm willing to try to like them more. Plus, a band with such a stellar single like Ready For The Floor will always have my respect.
Jesus, almost 4am. I better go to bed. I'll see you soon (hopefully, before 2011, hehe)
