The Year in Rock and Pop

Friday, December 17, 2010

This was the year when a band from Montreal topped the charts, American Idol went indie, and Lady Gaga and Beyonce had their very own Thelma and Louise moment. Los Angeles Times chief pop music critic Ann Powers and Rolling Stone contributing editor Rob Sheffield join us with their lists of 2010’s best rock and pop music.

Also saw Shabazz Palaces in Brooklyn this past summer, and it was an amazing set unlike any other I've witnessed. Signed to Sub Pop now, and I can't wait to hear what they drop next.

Really happy to hear the mention for Shabazz Palaces! I was lucky enough to see them play at Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn this summer and it felt like the future of hip hop. Where it's going. The truth.
