PoOPlists 2010

Duncan Clark Poop ’10

 Buy New or Used via amazon 1. THE IMAGINED VILLAGE – Empire & Love: The project is premised on the belief that traditional folk music was never intended to be static or relegated to history in the form that a generation finds it. It was meant to be poked, adapted, stretched and reflective of the times and society to be passed on to the future. That apparently includes old Slade songs. Buy New or Used via amazon Buy New or…

Eric Fine Poop ’10

Is it me or is it getting harder and harder to get my POOP out? Pun very much intended. I know everything seems much harder these days. One of the benefits of being on the other side of 40, I guess. Nonetheless, I somehow managed to get in it, just under the wire. My soft rock tastes of 2010…  Buy New and Used via amazon 1. Junip – Fields Can a record be both light and heavy at the same…

21st Century Schizoid POOP by Jim Finnigan New Paltz, that’s the place we be livin’ If we ain’t puffin’ blunts, we be chasin’ women Magnum Man & Bighead 2010 THOUGHTS Buy New or Used via amazon A good year for music, I thought.

John Greak Poop ’10

Wish I had something interesting to say; alas, the only news I have is that 2010 was a pretty – I said pretty – good year for new music. These are my 15 fave raves, in some particular order.  Buy New or Used via amazon 1. Ted Leo/Pharmacists – The Brutalist Bricks  Buy New or Used via amazon 2. Sharon Van Etten – Epic  Buy New or Used via amazon 3. Deerhunter – Halcyon Digest  Buy New or Used via…


Andrew Stewart Poop ’10

 Buy New or Used via amazon 1. The Black Keys / Brothers (sounds like: John Lee Hooker + Hendrix + T. Rex). This fuzz-laden, distortion-heavy, heartbroken blues-rock masterpiece hits you like a gut punch. Goddamn.  Buy New or Used via amazon 2. The Tallest Man On Earth / The Wild Hunt (sounds like: Dylan + Mississippi John Hurt + Destroyer). Passion, and acoustic psychedelia, via rural Sweden. Truly transformative. (Also a great EP out this year.)  Buy New or Used…


Jim Meyers Poop ’10

I wasn’t going to write a screed about how I didn’t give new artists enough of a chance and how I tend to be contented within a cocoon of comfort. I have been able, or perhaps, more aptly, unwilling to embrace new acts. I swore this year I would investigate, instigate and embrace the new. However, everything I heard seemed sadly second-rate from where it would originate. Why seek works influenced by or in debt of that which I love…


Kent B Poop ’10

 Buy New or Used via amazon Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings – I Learned the Hard Way Of course, it’s a little retro, but she doesn’t mimic the Motown or Stax mold. The songs are subtle with no killer bridges or gloss; yet they slowly take hold. It’s mature music about love and relationships gone bad. It’s soul.
