The list author says: "my favourite indie music of 2010 as of july. personal opinion only, don't be surprised if you dissagree. Also, I'm not trying to be a obnoxious hipster. I have nothing against pop music, I just prefer indie over it. I'm sure that most of you have already heard about these artists, but for anyone who is new this type of music I hope you listen to some of these artists and enjoy them."
"endlessly enjoyable debut album, can't wait a second one. Every song seems labored over, and Local Natives add a certain quality of giddiness and excitement to the ablum that keeps me coming back again and again."
"over indulging ablum that still maintains structure, hard to believe that Gorillaz keep this project under control considering all the names and songs they mixed together, but they pulled it off almost perfectly."
