Folk & Country: Year in Review 2010

3. Jason Collett Rat a Tat Tat (Arts & Crafts)
With a wink and a dirty grin, Jason Collett cranked all the dials on his fifth solo album. This time around, his raspy drawl is a little twangier and his retro detailing a little glossier. Although he pays homage to myriad bygone musical styles, Collett adds a tart twist that turns familiar echoes into fresh sounds. Whether it's blowing out the speakers with screeching electric guitars or turning on the charm with its sparkling pop melodies, Rat a Tat Tat has enough irreverent groove to get a nation on its feet.

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.
