Dirtbag Awards : Melissa Kim’s Top 10 New Bands/Artist of 2010 Pt. 1

20 Sep


10. Two Door Cinema Club(

This Northern Irish band produces pop that will pique the interest of any indie cynic.

9. Drake(http://www.myspace.com/thisisdrake)

His rap style is like no other I’ve ever heard. But I’m mostly just pleased with how Mr. Jimmy Brooks himself continues to rep Toronto in such a positive and sincere way.


8. The Pop Winds(http://www.myspace.com/thepopwinds)
You already know why I love these boys.


7. The Bitters(
http://www.myspace.com/bittersband)
The grotesque album art. Guitarist Ben Cook’s drum battle with Nick Jonas in
Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam
. Those facts have nothing to do with their music, but
that’s because this Toronto band already has that all down; shaking things up
however they can. And I love that.


6. Mount Kimbie(http://www.myspace.com/mountkimbie)
Not only does this band bro down with James Blake on a pretty regular basis, but they are also kind of the forefathers of the post-dubstep movement. I didn’t really discover what dubstep was all about until this year, but I’m so happy I did.


5. James Blake(http://www.myspace.com/jamesblakeproduction)
All gushing and background info for this man has been reserved to my Next Level
piece on him unless you want a marriage proposal to ensue.
