Adriana Mundy’s Favorite Albums of 2010

It is indeed that time of year. Well, yes, it is late December aka Christmas/New Years time. However, when most people are trimming trees, dusting off their John Denver and the Muppets Christmas albums and throwing back some egg nog, music addicts/geeks alike are perusing every “Best of 2010” list they can find on the world wide web. That being said…

Two-thousand and ten was quite a whirlwind year for me. I became part of this brilliant music blog, had a crash course in promoting shows and met some pretty special people along the way. It’s safe to say the music released this year all served as an applicable soundtrack as it felt like new albums came out faster than I could digest them.

If you’ve read most of my posts, it’s apparent that I enjoy reporting on international acts that I feel deserve American attention (and also since the rest of the Donewaiting staff do such a stellar job of keeping up on everything).

On top of national and international releases, Columbus’s scene has also kept quite busy this year. Without further ado, here’s my 2010 list:

1. Efterklang, Magic Chairs
Watch: Modern Drift

Reasons why Denmark rules: 1. Efterklang 2.Christiania 3. Legoland

2. Finders Keepers CompilationPomegranates
MP3:Zia: “Helelyos”

Who can resist some 60’s Persian Pop/Funk/Psych?

3. Cate Le Bon, Me Oh My
Watch: Shoeing the Bones

Honestly didn’t know much about Cate before interviewing her earlier this year, now I can’t stop listening to her. (Oh, and this video is really wonderfully weird.) Continue reading

Jonsi to play the Newport

There’s not much that makes me happier than seeing incredible live acts work their way through Columbus. On that note, I’m pleased to announce the news of Jonsi‘s solo performance at The Newport on Saturday, November 6th.

He released his debut solo album Go this past April and has been touring on it since. Though I’ve never had the chance to see Sigur Ros live, Jonsi’s New York show on May 8th at Terminal 5 was honestly one of the best shows both aesthetically and musically that I’ve ever seen. If you’re a fan of the record, be sure to also pick up a copy of his full length DVD, Go Quiet, in which he performs the entire album unplugged.

He will be supported by Mountain Man. Despite the name, the band is actually comprised of three Vermont women (Molly Erin Sarle, Alexandra Sauser-Monnig and Amelia Randall Meath) whose harmonizing and instrumentation combine to create a mellow, euphoric sound. Tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster July 31st. Mountain Man video after the jump. Continue reading
