2010 Top 10

* Band of Horses, Infinite Arms (Columbia/Fat Possum) — BOH had opening tours with Widespread Panic and Pearl Jam this year, and perhaps that reflects the band’s overall appeal better than anything.

Tick Rock

Deer Tick finds greater dose of rock ‘n’ roll The latest Deer Tick album, Black Dirt Sessions, is a rising tide of sonic despair that ends with singer John McCauley howling for redemption on garment-rending lament “Christ Jesus.” When the echo of the last pounded piano chord floats away, it’s hard not to feel like McCauley may be the saddest bastard you’ve ever come across, but...
