Odds and ends that didn't quite fit in 2010

I tried to pack as much as I could into this week's Top 10 issue, but memory is a funny thing, and of course now I'm recalling other jams I jammed in 2010.
Currently on the road with Dikes and also on Sundae Records, the Zoltars self-titled debut was more three-chord rock-around-the-living-room fun. Other good'uns: One Hundred Flowers' Mechanical Bride, Pure Ecstasy's 7-inch split with Sleep Over, and the Secrecy's video for "To the Left."
Nationally: Nu Sensae's drum and bass doom was appropriately menacing; Australian ladies Beaches' eternal psych was on repeat; Jana Hunter's new band, Lower Dens, jangled off the freak folk; and Twin Shadow's Forget made me want to dance alone in a dark room. So I did.
