Time zone: central


Shelby Lynne “Something to Be Said About Airstreams”
from Tears Lies & Alibis (Everso 2010) —80. So begins Part 1 of the Feel Like Going Home Top 80 Countdown.


Patrick Park “Blackbird Through the Dark”
from Come What Will (Badman 2010) —79. A very promising young songwriter from LA.


Los Lobos “On Main Street”
from Tin Can Trust CD Album (Shout! Factory 2010) —78. This record doesn't rank with the band's best work, but as it's Los Lobos, it's worth hearing.


Brothers Lazaroff “Waiting For You”
from Give 'Em What They Need (self-released 2010) L —77. From right here in St. Louis. A dense, textured sophomore release, their first record with the current lineup.


Peter Case “Somebody Told The Truth”
from Wig! CD Album (Yep Roc 2010) —76. Back to basics rock and blues, not that Case ever left that nourishing ground. One of my favorite concert moments of the year was Peter Case playing a duo set at Off Broadway with an unrehearsed drummer, and killing it, while Kings of Leon were being


Elvis Costello “That's Not the Part of Him You're Leaving”
from National Ransom (Hear Music 2010) —75. A country jazz rock & roll meditation on loss, economic and otherwise.


The Scruffs “Conquer Me”
from Conquest (Scruffsville 2010) —74. Stephen Burns, the legendary Memphis rocker, with Mike Baillie (guitar), Simon Cottrell (bass), and Mark Rodgers (drums)


She & Him “Thieves”
from Volume 2 MP3/file Album (Merge) —73. Another concert highlight of 2010: Seeing M. Ward and Zooey at LouFest 2010.


Frontier Ruckus “Nerves of the Night Mind”
from Deadmalls and Nightfalls CD Album (Ramseur 2010) —72. From Detroit. A terrific concept album about the immortality of memories, as registered in the stripmalls of the midwest.


Delta Spirit “Bushwick Blues”
from History From Below CD Album (Rounder www.rounder.com 2010) —71. An album that I didn't spend nearly enough time with, but an excellent sophomore release from the San Diego band. Maybe the hardest rocking album Rounder has ever put out.


Tift Merritt “Live Till You Die”
from See You On the Moon (Universal Music Group International 2010) —70. Another solid, soulful record from Tift.


The Walkmen “Victory”
from Lisbon (Fat Possum 2010) —69. The Walkmen played a brilliant and sold out show at Off Broadway this year.


The Romany Rye “All The Boys”
from Highway 1, Looking Back Carefully (self released 2010) —68. Very nice country folk rock album from Luke MacMaster of Long Beach, Cal.


The Head and the Heart “Lost In My Mind”
from The Head and the Heart (Sub Pop 2011) —67. From Seattle, Josiah Johnson and Jon Russell with singer and violinist Charity Thielen. After this very nice debut album, the band signed to Sub Pop.


Half Knots “Far Away”
from New Perspective (Half Knots www.halfknots.com 2010) L —66. Danny Kathriner and friends return with another fine, post-Wagon album. I wouldn't exactly call them over-exposed.


The Rockhouse Ramblers “If I Knew Now (What I Knew Then)”
from Lies and Damn Lies CD Album (self-released 2004) L —65. A great set of honky tonk and rockabilly from a truly legendary band.


Eli Paperboy Reed “Just Like Me”
from Come and Get It! (EMI 2010) —64. This might have placed higher but Mike Elizondo's production (or maybe Bob Ludwig's mastering) is a little too bright for this slice of Motown and Stax revivalism.


Josh Ritter “Change of Time”
from So Runs the World Away CD Album (Pytheas Recordings 2010) —63. The first single and still my favorite song from this, Ritter's 5th album.


Azure Ray “Don't Leave My Mind”
from Drawing Down the Moon (Saddle Creek 2010) —62. Lovely dream pop from Maria Taylor and Orenda Fink of Athens Ga.


Depedro “What Goes On”
from Nubes de Papel (Nat Geo 2010) —61. Jairo Zavala backed up by members of Calexico covering the Velvet Underground.


Old 97s “Champaign, Illinois”
from The Grand Theatre Volume One (New West 2010) —60. One of the most clever and catchy songs from a songwriter with a lot of those -- Rhett Miller. Apparently, Miller cleared his loving theft of "Desolation Row" with Dylan, who only asked for a 50/50 cut. Old 97's perform at the Pageant on February 18,


Conrad Plymouth “Here to There”
from Conrad Plymouth (Ten Atoms 2010) —59. A new band, to me at any rate, and a really nice collection of songs. Christopher Porterfield from Milwaukee.


The Gaslight Anthem “The Diamond Church Street Choir”
from American Slang CD Album (Side One Dummy 2010) —58. It's always good to watch a band grow into its own highly tattooed skin.


Tight Pants Syndrome “New Hit Record (Tammy)”
from Fully Attractive CD Album (Blip Blap! 2010) L —57. 17 songs from the prolific St. Louis power pop band. Just about every on is a keeper.


Free Energy “Young Hearts”
from Stuck on Nothing CD Album (Caroline 2010) —56. A favorite of my fellow Wed. morning DJ Allen Dahm. A great rock & roll debut that channels Thin Lizzy as well as the Hold Steady.


Megafaun “Carolina Days”
from Heretofore (Hometapes 2010) —55. A nice, catchy acoustic rock record.


Justin Townes Earle “Harlem River Blues” (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2010) —54. Wishing Justin well in 2011. 2010 pan out so well.


Jackson Browne & David Lindley “These Days”
from Love Is Strange (Inside 2010) —53. A beautiful collaboration from the two masters, and a reminder of how good they were at the Fox Theatre this year. This version features Luz Casal on the vocals.


Teenage Fanclub “Live With The Seasons”
from Shadows CD Album (Merge 2010) —52. First album in some 5 years. Worth the wait.


Freedy Johnston “The Other Side of Love”
from Rain On The City (Bar/None Records www.bar-none.com 2010) —51. Somewhat controversial on the release date, but I'm going with January 2010, so this one counts.


Cassie Morgan and the Lonely Pine “Money Talks”
from Weathered Hands, Weary Eyes (self-released 2010) L —50. Believe it or not, a headphone album. You have to hear the hiss and hum.


Jenny and Johnny “Scissor Runner”
from I'm Having Fun Now (Warner Bros. 2010) —49. Surprisingly excellent collaboration from Jenny Lewis and her BFF Jonathan Rice.


The Black Keys “Tighten Up”
from Brothers CD Album (Nonesuch 2010) —48. Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney's most consistent album.


The Extra Lens “Cruiserweights”
from The Undercard (Merge 2010) —47. John Darnielle and Frankin Bruno resume where the Extra Glenns left off.


Elizabeth Cook “Heroin Addict Sister”
from Welder CD Album (31 Tigers 2010) —46. The Nashville mainstay's strongest set of songs.


Deadstring Brothers “Can't Make It Through the Night”
from Sao Paulo (Bloodshot www.bloodshotrecords.com 2010) —45. Criminally underrated record -- perhaps even by yours truly.


Gil Scott-Heron “I'm New Here” CD Album (XL 2010) —44. Less than 1/2 hour long but a powerful 1/2 hour it is.


Aaron Neville “I Am a Pilgrim”
from I Know I've Been Changed (Tell It 2010) —43. Gorgeous singing, gorgeous production, gorgeous songs.


Theodore “I Won't Be a Stranger”
from Hold You Like A Lover (Moon Jaw Records 2010) L —42. One of the very best bands in St. Louis with their best release to date.


The Tallest Man on Earth “Burden of Tomorrow”
from The Wild Hunt CD Album (Dead Oceans 2010) —41. Not another new Dylan; just a rivetting singer and songwriter by the name of Kristian Matsson of Dalarna, Sweden. Tune in for the rest of my favorite albums of 2010.
