30 Indie Albums of 2010 You Need To Hear

It’s that time of year again, when we look back on the year and recount our favorite memories. Our favorite movies, our favorite TV shows, and even our favorite music, and this year, we had a lot of great albums. But don’t worry, I won’t be going on and on about how great the new Kanye album is, nor will try and debate with you Pinkerton loving elitists how great the new Weezer albums were because it’d be like talking to a brick wall. What I will do, however, is tell you about the 30 indie albums from this year you need to hear.
