20 Artists/Bands You Should Hear in 2010 #MusicMonday

Below is a recommendation to my family, friends, and anyone who is interested in 52 artists or bands that I think are worthy of your time.  The music selections will consist of some bands you may be very familiar with and some you have never listened to before.  The music that is recommended will be more “indie”-ish, but I am not cool enough to be an indie-music snob, so some popular/signed artists will make the year’s cut.  I will also keep an ongoing list below here for each week.  The genres are limitless, with the criteria being that it simply sounds awesome.  There are a couple just for laughs.  Enjoy!

Week 1: Death Cab for Cutie

Week 2: The Swell Season

Week 3: Vampire Weekend

Week 4: Friendly Fires

Week 5: Dave Carroll (just because it’s funny)

Week 6: Joshua James
