albums of the decade | 2010-2019

As we come up on 15 years existing as a blog, we are pleased to present our favorite releases of the decade. When we did this back in 2009 — that list still mostly holds up, with a few exceptions — we got Carles to write the foreword. It's a relic of an era that feels like an eternity ago, but one thing he said still rings true: "We have lived through this. Now we shall reflect upon this".

MAG BAY KILLSHOT

Magdalena Bay – Killshot

L.A. duo Magdalena Bay keeps their flawless pop banger streak intact by dropping THE Halloween bop of the season. "Killshot" is a slinky, lovesick dance-pop anthem that the duo says is about, "unfulfilled yearning, about getting so caught up in romantic suspense that you feel your heart may burst." Watch the group's spooky and yet still absolutely fire DIY video below + check the lyrics/download here.

Das Body – Against the Glass

Oslo's Das Body level up on their cathartic new single, officially dropping tomorrow on Luminelle. Das Body hooked up with the great Jorge Elbrecht on this one -- Elbrecht will also co-produce the band's debut LP, coming in early 2020 -- and that inspired collab is proving to be a magical one so far, as "Against the Glass" comes pretty damn close to capturing Ellie Linden and her band's stratospheric live presence (if you know you know), resulting in the biggest and most anthemic jam the band has released to date...
