Slipped Discs 2010

PopMatters looks at those Slipped Discs, the ones that our writers dearly loved and thought were important, but simply didn’t draw enough votes to make the top 70. With that much great music to digest, we’re splitting these picks up over the next three days. So dive in and discover something new or revisit some of last year’s favorites.

The year-end list is an annual rite of passage at nearly every arts and culture site and magazine on the planet and PopMatters is no exception. We gave you our top 70 albums back in December. Those were based on votes from our large and diverse writing staff and given the number of people voting and only 70 selections to go around, it’s no wonder plenty of 2010’s finest didn’t make the cut.


So, as in years past, PopMatters is offering a look at those Slipped Discs, the ones that our writers dearly loved and thought were important, but simply didn’t draw enough votes to make the top 70. With that much great music to digest, we’re splitting these picks up over the next three days. So dive in and discover something new or revisit some of last year’s favorites.

Part 3: From Perfume Genius to Xiu Xiu
