I haven't been listening to that much music this year. I've been mostly catching up on last year's albums and golden oldies.
Can't say which 2010 release is winning the late-bloomer category thus far, but I can quickly list the names:
Deftones - Diamond Eyes
Lower Dens - Twin-Hand Movement
Sharon Van Etten - Epic
Suuns - Zeroes QC
Holy Fuck - Latin
and Hidden Orchestra - Night Walks
would probably be the stand-outs at this moment.
I'm not much in the mood to rant, so this is mostly a list of stats for posterity....
