Vinnie Fiorello (Paper+Plastick Records / Less Than Jake) – 10 best albums of 2010

Well, another year is drawing to a close. People are gearing up for the holidays and it’s almost time for us to start creating our New Year’s resolution lists. But before we begin looking to the future, let’s employ a different kind of list to help us appreciate the past. You know what I’m talking about. Yep, a Top Ten list! Each day for the next couple weeks I’m going to publish a different Top 10 albums of 2010 list for you to praise, completely disagree with, or just outright ignore.

Today’s list comes from Vinnie Fiorello, the founder of one of today’s most influential punk record labels, Paper + Plastick Records.  Oh, he also just happens to be the drummer in a little band called Less Than Jake too.  Check out Vinnie’s picks for the 10 Best Albums of 2010 right here.

.

OFF – the first 4 eps

caustic one minute (or less) songs that feel like you’ve heard before but are not retreads or ironic in approach. this gets replays daily.

.

.

MAKE DO AND MEND – “end measure mile”

look, i put it out along with Tim from Panic but this post hardcore record pleases the “im drinking to HOT WATER MUSIC” side of myself and the “let’s listen to the RITES OF SPRING” other side.

.

.

RIOT BEFORE – “rebellion”

Brett the singer is the best lyricist in most bands. they are friends who happen to be in a great pop punk band that can run circles around 95% of other pop punk bands.

.

.

FLATLINERS – “cavalcade”

potent songs of the slower side of the Flats but while I wish for more ska-punk (am i the only one?) this release proves that they are the leaders in the next generation of punk bands here to stay.

.

.

FRANK TURNER – “rock and roll”

The best song Frank has written resides on this ep, get into it or get out of the way.
.

.

.

BOMB THE MUSIC INDUSTRY – “adults!…..”

Jeff sings his way through songs about everything and does so in a way that no one else can ever replicate.

.

.

DOPAMINES – “expect the worst”

the best nudes photos and the best pop punk record of the last year.
.

.

.

SUPERCHUNK – “majesty shredding”

call it a comeback? nah. call it a complete record from first song to last.
.

.

.

FUN – “live at fingerprints”

musical geniuses hanging out together.
.

.

.

MOTION CITY SOUNDTRACK – “my dinosaur life”

quirky pop music that finally finds its voice. Justin sings the songs that become trapped and ricochet in my brain.
