2010 End of Summer Open Thread

Let’s chat. Jumping off points: Witch house: a real genre? NME’s top 50 new bands list: Do we need a list of 50 new bands? Can we have a list of five good ones instead? Have you totally forgotten about Spoon and Beach House? Has there been a single truly mind-blowing album this year? What pre-2010 jams are you listening to? How was your summer?
