Album of the day “Punisher” by Phoebe Bridgers

 

Phoebe Bridgers has finally released a second album. Her first was one of the best of the 2010s so you’re going to want to buy the whole thing.

Why not do it tomorrow on bandcamp and help a good cause while you are at it?

100 Albums from the 2010s you should check out.

Welcome to the distant future time of 2020! I spend the last three plus months of the 2010s counting down my favorite songs, one each day. The more important list to me though is the album list and I’m not going to make you wait three months for the whole thing. Albums are something you live with, grow out of or grow to love more over time. Albums from 2010 have been with me for a big chunk of my life and albums from 2019 are still fresh, I haven’t had time to forget about them and then come back to see if they still have the same magic. But I’ll attempt to put them and everything in between into one list. There are tons of great albums that didn’t make the cut. Your list is probably different, and in ten years my probably will be too. But for now here are 100 albums from last decade to help get you through this one.

Entreaty.net’s top 100 songs of the decade

If my math is correct (and that’s never a given) we’re 102 days away from the end of the year and end of the decade. Like most music blogs Entreaty.net will have an albums of the decade list but with over three months left in the decade we still have albums to come from artists like Angel Olsen and Big Thief that could potentially and hopefully will be better than whatever is number 100 on my list. So instead of posting one album a day ending on #1 on new year’s eve I’m going to post a song a day. The extra day is for my favorite albums of 2019 list.

Here’s my logic, with ten years of songs there’s pretty much a 100% chance I’m going to forget to include a great song, I’ll probably forget about songs I really love. Maybe at the end I’ll do a songs I forgot about playlist and then I can also add in any new songs from the next three months that are worthy. I’d rather the album list be more accurate.

What I do promise to give you is 100 awesome songs. I started with a giant list of songs and cut it down to 100, which was difficult. There were lots of hard decisions. Feel free to argue with my choices, I very well might end up agreeing with you.

We’ll start tomorrow with number 100.
