NME Magazine // Top 50 New Bands of 2010

yuck
Yuck

This is a decent list from NME. I don’t agree with Sleigh Bells & Wu Lyf and some of these bands have been around for years. We’re big fans of Yuck, Avi Buffalo, jj, Pure Ecstasy, Warpaint, Wild Nothing, Cults, and Smith Westerns. The Middle East was one of the best bands last year. I would say that Cults, Cerebral Ballzy, and Wild Nothing are the best bands of 2010.
