Stereogum's 40 Best New Bands of 2010

Best Coast, Best Music

Let's go on, deep into the wild hunt for the best new music of 2010. Stereogum just published the list of its favourite 40 Best New Bands of the first eight months of the year. You can find the full list here, along with a brief description and one MP3 each band. I searched the spotisphere and I found songs by 21 of them. Not a great percentage, yep, but this time I think it's natural: most of the bands haven't published a real album, yet. Just singles or EPs. Stereogum chose an alphabetical order. I chose a more top-of-the-pops-oriented chart: a countdown based on the listenings of the community. Best Coast gained #1.  

P.S. Curiosity. Just 11 out of these 40 bands appear in the similar NME's Best 50 New Bands of 2010, already spotified here. In that case, too, Best Coast was the happy winner.
