Folk & Country: Year in Review 2010

2. Basia Bulat Heart Of My Own (Secret City)
Basia Bulat may have augmented the stable, old-soul emotion of her 2007 folk-pop debut with a rumbling, rollicking edge on Heart of My Own, but her gracious profundity remains. Heart-filled musings on home, such as the stellar "Gold Rush," almost exude the raw force of the great Canadian outdoors, a big inspiration for this record. The arresting vocal and autoharp simplicity of "The Shore" demonstrates the fundamental talent at work, one so transcendent that it hints at a timeless soulfulness that Bulat is still at the outset of channelling.

This is a pretty great list with the exception of the exception of Daniel Romano's Working for the Music Man from this - one of the best records of the year. Though I do understand it might have seemed like a pile on with Baby Eagle and Daniel, Fred and Julie already being there.

Also, the DeadMau5 ad requiring muting on every fucking page is super annoying.

"Nameless Poseur" nailed it....listening to Romano as I speak, and this is a classic in the vein of Hazlewood/van Zandt/Lightfoot that was sadly overlooked.

I totally agree with the previous comments about Daniel Romano's album. It was on my personal top ten, and I highly recommend it.
