Top TITS Of Twenty Ten Part I: Top Ten Albums

31 Dec

OH MY LORD THE MOST GLORIOUS TIME OF MUSICAL LUSCIOUSNESS IS FINALLY UPON US!

Hurrpies and Gentlederps, it is with the utmost pride and sincerity that I present to you the first segment of The Worst Guy’s top yummys of what has been a spectacular year in everything except mainstream music. 2010 has seen an extreme surge of attention directed towards the EDM community and the underground indie/alternative music scenes. DJs have turned into international gods in mere seconds, and technological advancements to small time producers and bands has sparked a shitsmere of artists emerging from the confines of their bedrooms with extremely unique sounds. The hottest girls started listening to dubstep, and 17 year old DJs produced tracks that engrained themselves into mixes and sets across the globe. Events like Ultra, Electric Daisy Carnival, Bonnaroo, Coachella & Glastonbury were overflowing in talent and attendance, while countless other smaller festivals began popping up faster than kirstie alley’s hemorrhoids.

Concurrently, the mainstream american music market was forced to sell its pride and finally kneel down and slurp some Canadian schlang in order to generate revenue. Who woulda guessed a little shit from stratford and a jewish rapper who played a cripple could life-fuck every girl and child in the US. While all the while sites like Hype Machine and Grooveshark took a firm grasp over the underground music scene’s balls and put all the power of authority back into the listeners hands, where it should be. Artists from around the world were able to gain popularity outside their home towns as the internet pushed the music industry into a whole new stratosphere.

With all this new talent, it was very difficult for us here at TheWorstGuy.com to consolidate all of our favourite songs into a single post. So it dawned on us to shower our loving readers with a week of voluptuous joy, spreading our favourite TITs of each genre across several posts so that each may be garnished with the full fondling that it deserves!

We begin today with our top ten albums of 2010, which has probably been the most difficult to narrow down. With so many new artists in varying genres garnishing incredible accolade over the year, its tough to make a top ten list that satisfies the opinions of the mass music community. After much debate and bickering, this is what we came up with.

Kanye West – My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy

When checking the top album posts from other music sites, ive noticed a tendency to count down from bottom to top and save the best albums for last. I say FUCK THAT, as the best album deserves to be mentioned first and foremost and this album has most definitely earned that right. Its actually quite scary how incredibly talented Kanye has become in the studio, devoid of how retarded he is in day to day society. His antics remind me of one of those outgoing stacked girls in your grade 12 science class that get straight As but have absolutely no common sense. Personality aside, Mr. West has birthed an album that has grabbed every music fan by the taint, and given Yeezy another shimmering masterpiece to mount on his wall. Whether your having fantastic sex, running a triathalon, knitting, commiting arson or taking a nice shit, theres a song on the album that can easily cater to the desired occasion.

CAN WE GET MUCH HIGHER?!

Deadmau5 – 4×4 = 12

Holy fucknuts, where to even begin describing the sheer animality that I experience every time the tracks from this album explode out of my speakers. Fuck all you mau5haters and posers out there, the king of Niagra shall forever reign atop his throne of insanity. From the first kick of Animal Rights to the last synth in Some Chords, this album delves you deep through the depths of the electronic playground that is Joel Zimmermans mind and shits you right out the other side. The icing on the cake is the final song on the album, aptly named 4×4=12, as it consists of a 1 hour DJ set provided by the Mau5 himself, alolwing his fans to hear the album as he intended them to hear it; mixed and mastered by his hand. Combined with a hauntingly seizuretastic live performance, the one known as Deadmau5 pretty much curb-stomped 2010.

Vampire Weekend – Contra

If your are ever in a shit mood and put this album on and dont feel better after, your a sociopath. This album took everyones mental picture of “I wish I was on a beach right now” and somehow materialized it through music. Every song is more upbeat than a cheerleader on speed, and matched with a vocalist that sounds as if he robbed Paul Simons soul, you have a sound that people develop a insane craving for. I was lucky enough to see them play live this summer, where they somehow sounded infinitely better than on the album. Combined with their mastery of modern production technology during their live sets, puts them in the bullpen with the likes of Miike Snow, while their vocals keep them that much better than the rest. Cant wait for the next album.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#4

Sleigh Bells – Treats

After the first decible I heard of Tell ‘Em, I became instantly hooked on Sleigh Bells. The noise-pop music duo of Derek Miller & Alexis Krauss have been pioneering an extremely unique and well textured sound that has flooded the indie music community. 2010 has marked a year overrun by emerging female vocalists, marrying their vocal talents to creative underground producers instead of mainstream trash. In this case, Millers production versatility shines beautifully through every chorus and verse accompanied by Krauss, and the resulting music is synthfully sublime.

#5

Big Boi – Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty

I think after the first scene of this seasons Entourage (as garbage as it ended up), me and my friends collectively shat our pants. For the song picked to open episode one of season 7 was Shutterbugg, a track that tattoos itself to your brain immediately following its first listening to. The very same song that blasted its way through everyones cars speakers since the moment it was leaked off the album. Damn has Big Boi honed his craft and shown us a whole new side of his personality and talent. His flow is sensational, and the signature style that has kept him on iconic levels since the Outkast days shines thru on every track. Let this be evidence to force those that believe hip hop is dead to think twice, as maybe its you critics that have become dead to the idea that the genre is alive and well, constantly evolving and improving itself while thriving on the influences of its roots.

The Gorillaz – Plastic Beach

2010 for me marked the end to a 6 year void that has eaten away at me since the release of Demon Days by the Gorillaz back in 2004. Like many in this world, I find falling asleep troublesome at times and more often than not turn to music to fuel my dreams. Its a long process to find that one specific sound or genre that allows you to properly relax and detach from the world. Since Demon Days my sleep playlist has been thirsting for more Gorillaz, only to be quenched in 2010 following the release of Plastic Beach. The level of slumber I have reached after first listening to On Melancholy Hill has yet to be topped, with the rest of the album following suit; overflowing with tracks that unwind the body and remove the mind.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#7

Two Door Cinema Club – Tourist History

I honestly did not know these guys were Irish until I saw them live, as from their music the only thing that can really be assumed is that they’re incredibly talented musicians. Like Vampire Weekend, the trio of Sam Halliday, Alex Trimble & Kevin Baird have found insane success through the magic of music blogs and Hype Machine, and quickly found themselves on countless iTunes libraries across the globe. Their sound is somewhat of a cluster fuck of several 21st century indie and alternative bands, and the resulting music is catchy as sin. If this is the direction alternative and pop groups are heading towards, 2011 is going to be a fantastical year.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#8

Flying Lotus – Cosmogramma

Every once in a while an artist emerges that introduces a intensely unique and individual sound to the music industry, leaving most in awe while the rest scratch their heads. The music usually involves a hybridization of one or many genres, with production qualities that complement specific sounds of each influence together in a manner befitting some sort of structure. Flying Lotus took a different approach, morphing elements of genres that dont typically sound natural together; creating an incredibly off tempoed and heavily textured sound. In order to truly enjoy this album for what it is, you must force yourself to throw contemporary musical conventions down the shitter and allow yourself to blindly enter a musical world that isn’t really meant to be fully understood. I think as time goes on this album will gain much wider acceptance and accolade, forcing a much more riotous anticipation for the subsequent Flying Lotus albums to follow.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#9

LCD Soundsystem – This Is Happening

Cue the future grammy winner for alternative music album of the year. James Murphy has come a long way from the days that Daft Punk were playing at his house; a musical journey that has led him to the top of the Billboard charts. Murphy labels this album as “…much better than his previous other two,” a statement that humbly describes the tracks that make up the playlist, one reeking of originality and electronic soul. Im pretty sure the chilean miners even know all the words to I Can Change.

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————

#10

Rusko – O.M.G.!

Your damn right i put this album in the top ten you fucking haters you, as dubstep is here to stay and has become a key addition to a well balanced musical diet. The cockney thug rubbed out another tantalizing helping of synthesized madness this year, with the majority of the tracks released skyrocketing to the top of both the corporate and underground music charts. “Wake The Fuck Up” became the unofficial motto amongst festival goers, as dubstep tents and events across the globe attracted more and more caos. Rusko also learnt to add female vocals to his music, a move that has become somewhat of a necessity following the success that other artists, like Deadmau5 and Bassnectar, had when employing the same technique. Amber Coffman could be uglier than quasi modo and it really wouldn’t matter, her vocals in Hold On are so damn sexy they make my eyes rain and pretty much turn my spine into goo. One of my favourite things to see is when a mainstreamer listens to Rusko for the first time and a curious smirk sneaks across their face, as it reminds me how much bigger this genre and this artists are going to be in the upcoming years.

Stay tuned for more Top TITs of 2010 coming up all thru this week!

Epic-est Moment Of The Year [Video]

25 Dec

Dear Music Lovers,

Incase you missed it or have somehow forgotten by now, 2010 has marked one of the most highly anticipated years in modern music history. For the helmet headed lords of french electro have finally poked their heads out of the studio and regained their presence within the electronic music community. Although the Tron Legacy Album was not what most were expecting, we must remember that it was written as a score to a film first and as an album second. Nonetheless I thought it sounded stupendous and after hearing that they will be touring and releasing new tracks not featured on the Tron soundtrack, I pretty much sharted. Then before I could clean up, I saw this video and added a second helping to my boxers. I think if I would have been at madison square garden that night I would have spontaneously combusted. If you were a phoenix fan who attended this concert and had no idea who daft punk was, I hope you rot in hell.

Wolfgang Gartner Returns To Canadian Soil

24 Dec

Dear Canadian Wolfgang Fans,

Ill give you a few seconds to calm down and clean up your pants….you stable? ok. What you have just read is indeed correct, Mr. Gartner has FINALLY smartened up and decided to return to the country that loves him the most. The strange thing is that from what ive researched, there seems to be a slight conflict in the dates. The first stop on the tour seems to be the issue, as on his myspace site it says that Wolfgang will be playing @ Stages night club in Kingston, Ontario on January 19th. However, other sources like EL Entertainment, the promotion group that ahs brought the likes of Wolfgang, Deadmau5, The Beetroots, MSTRKRFT & more, has scheduled Wolfgang to play at The New Yorker in London on the same day. Im not sure if this is an actual controversy or another way to rekindle the rivalry between the two schools…..in any case I will be following this closely and update you as soon as I get new info.

Haligonians & Habs fans need not worry, as the second and third stops on the tour seem to be cemented and uncontraversial. On January 20th, Wolfgang will be be throwing down @ The Palace in Halifax, and the next day (the 21st) he will be destroying La Muzique in Montreal. Unfortunately it seems that no tickets have been posted yet for any of the events, but be sure to check TheWorstGuy.com frequently as the moment I find the links for the tickets, they will be posted and tickets will be flying off the shelves.

The TITS Week 13

23 Dec

To My Fellow Bra-Snappers,

The joys and sorrows of first semester have passed, and if your’re like me 2011 will mark a much needed fresh start in more areas than one. Yea we all make new years resolutions, but aside from the resilient few among us that actually keep them, the only pleasure this time of year offers us normies is the promise of incredible parties, fantastic food and maybe a sweet champagne induced kiss from a beautiful girl as the clock strikes twelve. This year the crew here at TheWorstGuy.com offer you one more holiday treat, as next weeks rendition of the TITS will mark our “Best Of” 2010 round up, showcasing our most vulumptuous and boner popping offerings from the entire year, spanning the Dubstep, Electro-house, Indie & Hip-Hop genres. Incase your retarded, and were not aware of the ridiculous amount of sensational music created this year, you best mark down next thursday in blood. Heres is the last slew of bangers for 2010 before next weeks juggernaut. SLURP AWAY!

I Heart Brazil

22 Dec

Dear Electro Lovers,

Apparently down in Brazil there is a lot more going on than most are aware of, besides their fair share of soccer freaks and sensational pieces of ass. It seems that the DJ scene there has got some fucking hairy balls, as both of these green and yellowed DJs have some serious fucking talent. The first one to cross my cursor was Dirtyloud, which is also a surprisingly fitting adjective for the music he has birthed. If Porter Robinson sucked Sindney Sampsons dick and spat his spew into Wolfgang’s asshole, Dirtyloud would be the smelliest floater. Felipe Tampa, the second brazilian beast who has been donkeypunhcing my sanity all damn day, is a pure embodiment of what modern electro-house should sound like. He fist fucks his tracks with a perfect combination of sweeping high tones and fidget heavy basslines, like a Swedish House turkey stuffed with Afrojack and marinated in Skrillex.

If you dont believe me listen for yourself and make sure to keep some toilet paper handy

New Avicii Radio Rip + Essential Mix

21 Dec

Sadly, this will probably be my last post of 2010, as I will soon be in the warm bosom of the Caribbean, sippin’ back on rum and trying to move as few muscles as possible. I thought it necessary to go out with a very delectable post, featuring a yet to be released remix by Toronto’s NYE host himself. I can almost guarantee this song will bring in the new year with smiles and sweat on everyone’s face. This track was taken from his recent set he performed on the world-renowned BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix with Pete Tong. I figured why let you get off on a small portion of the mix when I can hook you guys up with the entire thing?? It is packed with so much heat that if you play this from your computer speakers only, they will probably just melt right off. Best use some BIG bass when listening to this.

P.S. If you haven’t already bought your Avicii NYE ticket (what the hell could be taking you so long?) you can easily pick one up through here.

HoHoHo…Dada December!

19 Dec

Dear Dada Life,

This christmas marks a very odd occurrence for me, as its the first time I actually sat down and emailed S4nty Klau5, pleading desperately with him to give a deserving boy a much needed christmas present. The present is something essential to the continual existence of my ever-evolving love and appreciation of modern electronic music. It’s something that has been sorely lacking in my region of the world, and needs a definite resurgence . Yes, I am indeed referring to the emptiness of never having had the pleasure to see you boys muck the decks live, in the presence of all who love your music as much as I do.

So, in my infinite knowledge I decided to Cc you the email I sent to Ol’ Nick, hoping that modern technology could move faster than Jesus. To my avail it seems as at least one of you were partly listening, as your December Mixtape was promptly released and it is ABSODERPLY HERPTASTICAL. From first decible to the last, it pretty much sounds like the score to a porno scene involving an orgy between sega genesis, ecstacy, and holiday cheer.

My last hope now is that whichever of you did not send this as my gift, will pitch in and send me my Dada Life Toronto or London concert…..please…..

El Guincho – Bombay [Video+Audio]

19 Dec

This pretty much wins are the most innovative and confusing music video of the year. After watching this a first time, I had to immiditately hit repeat as there is WAYYY too much going on to decipher it properly after one view. Not to mention the constant use of sparklers and titties that distract you heavily from the incredible song that is the basis of the video. My advice is as such, watch the video without thinking and let it all sink in, then watch it a bunch more times and each time focus on the music and images separately. Also, as usual, a quick bowl rip wouldn’t hurt.

P.S. what the fuck is that golden tape launching crossbow device…..whatever it is i want it!

Indubitably Dubstep Vol. VI

18 Dec

Dear Dubheads,

Hello once again to my faithful partners-in-Dubstep. I come again bearing my usual array of tasty treats, collected feverishly for all of you to drool over (watch the keyboard!). However, I also come with some unfortunate news. Indubitably Dubstep will be going on a short hiatus for the next couple weeks [tears] but never fear, for The Worst Guy will still be entertaining your earholes with the arrival of some very BIG surprises coming in the next few weeks so remember keep ’em peeled. Now to the main event.

Bassnectar

Since his release of Wildstyle EP back in October, not much new has surfaced from the depths of his wavy hair, however it nearly impossible to search the blogosphere without seeing at least one daily post about the Dubstep Lord. These two tracks show two very different sides to the madman himself; one is a smooth bass-driven womper of a track, the other a remix of ‘Kick/Push’ by Lupe Fiasco. Both are great to just crank the volume to and lie back with a big ol’ spliff in ya hand.

Bassnectar – Land of the Lupes

Me & You – Last Night (Bassnectar Remix)

Skrillex

After having Skrillex destroy my mind and some articles of clothing back at Wrongbar, I thought it would be a wise decision to go on a little ‘Skrillex-cleanse’ of my entire body, fearing I had become too dependent on his filthy basslines and terror-inducing drops. Too bad he had to go and release another addicting slayer, rendering me helpless to his music, yet again. I guess there’s just no use fighting it any longer.

Skrillex – Cat Rats

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

Flux Pavillion

One half of the creators of highly successful UK label, Circus Records, Flux Pavillion would probably be on the first ballot for induction into the Dubstep Hall of Fame. He has consistently created the meanest tracks anyone has ever heard, and has released so many face-melters that he’s created his own timbre. Now, no matter what party I end up at, if there is Dubstep being played, 9 out of 10 times he makes an appearance (or several) in the set. This one is only a preview, but I have been playing on repeat constantly in anticipation for the full release!

Flux Pavillion – Bass Cannon

—————————————————————————————————————————————————

Ajapai

I am very excited to introduce this DJ for the first time on the site. I really don’t know much about him, except he hails from Tokyo, Japan and creates some of the heaviest Dubstep I have heard in a while and at the same time keeps the rhythm flowing the whole time so you’re body won’t get a break from moving so hard. Signed under Rottun Recordings this Japanese virtuoso knows all the key ingredients for a delectable Dubstep destructor and you can all have a taste at some of the stuff he has produced. According to his Myspace profile, he doesn’t have any tour dates yet [sad face] but I doubt that will last for long, he really needs to come to North America and demolish some clubs, pronto!
