It happens every year... in fact, this is why I peruse all those "Top 10" lists, to discover music I didn't become aware of during the year. Here's my first "2010 record I discovered in 2011" and it's really good. I never understand those misanthropes who say "It was a bad year for music"... it's never a bad year for music. There's so much good music, I have trouble finding it all!
