In My Ears: New Young Empires, Updates To Best Of Lists and Best New Blogs

Thought I’d save a little time here and post everything in one.

From my scouring of the blogs, I’ve seen that Young Empires have a new demo floating around called “Earth Plates Shifting”. A little more on the downtempo side of what we’ve heard from the band, but an enjoyable listen. Head to Tympanogram to get the track.

I added a few more links to the best of 2010 lists post I put together. New additions are Zach That’s Top 25 (from We Listen For You), Rawkblog’s best songs of the year and The OCMD’s Top 25 Albums.

And speaking of lists/polls, The Recommender recently conducted a “Best Music Blog” poll, voted by bloggers only. The results are here, congrats to Sunset In The Rearview.

Elsewhere, I noticed that Pretty Much Amazing has a remix of “Punching In A Dream” by NZ band The Naked and Famous by Does It Offend You, Yeah? Big fan of both bands, but think this version isn’t greater than the sum of its parts.

BlogTO recently compiled a list of the top 10 songs from Toronto bands in 2010. Young Empires, show up on that list as well, bringing this post full circle.
