Vampire Weekend – Contra
Released: 01/12/10 (XL)
Delightfully catchy and stronger in every way their their first effort. Contra is an album that has something to offer everyone. Samples, pop hooks, guitar rifts, ballads, and best of all, a sense of sincerity, honesty and acceptance that allowed Vampire Weekend to produce the album they knew they could.
Released: 01/25/10 (Sub Pop)
Beach House struck gold with this hazy dream of a record. Each song is beautifully sculpted and released to the listener under the perfect sonic circumstances.

James Murphy claimed before the release of this album that is was definitely better than anything else he’d done. It’s hard to argue for or against this record in comparison to the others. LCD Soundsystem seem incapable of constructing something that isn’t sharp, biting, witting and danceable-all at the same time.
