Melting Pot

Sunday was a whirlwind, with the tension filled, extra-time finale of the World Cup (Viva España y Barça!) and my “best so far” of 2010. Two hours is a very short amount of time to attempt to mix together the best music I’ve heard over the last 6+ months. Several records didn’t make it in, solely based off of time, including Golden Triangle, Bastien Lallemant, Neverever, but there are 35 different releases featured here from this first half of 2010, plus a couple of sleepers from 2009. I think I’ll have to do two shows for the year end special. Enjoy the show and be sure to let me know what you think have been the best records at this point in 2010!
