Here are my Top Ten favorite albums of 2010 (released nationally), listed alphabetically with comments.
I host Gold Soundz, one of the younger shows on KDHX. It features a healthy dose of new rock, pop, and folk with a splash of Americana, country, and other older forms of rock ('90s alternative, new wave, post-punk, etc.). My first six months as a KDHX DJ have been an absolute pleasure and I look forward to being part of this music-loving community for a long time to come.
Over the last 2 years, Grace has hosted the KDHX program Nomadic Reverie, titled, in part, after the Bonnie Prince Billy song, and partly after her own biography. "Internally, the name relates to me," she says. "And musically, the show is all over the place." Grace specializes in all kinds of new and old folk music, experimental rock and electronic sounds, taking listeners on a journey that reflects her eclectic tastes and personal connection to music.
88.1 KDHX loves music from around the globe, but we have a special passion for music from right here in St. Louis. 2010 was a great year for local artists; this list provides a snapshot of some of the hottest releases.
