I was originally going to put this list together as a podcast, but I have spent far too long since announcing it so I thought I would put the list in text form. A note about the songs on this list: most of them were played in a previous podcast, and I’ll be linking to that podcast post so you can find the artist info there. One or two of the songs on the list I did not actually play in a podcast, but are still from artists I’ve played during 2010.
Before I get to the playlist, I just want to make a quick note about future podcast music formats. Alternative Airwaves will still be bringing you what I consider really cool free creative commons-licensed music – that’s not going to change. But I’m going to try to focus on new releases rather than back catalog stuff. I also called out to local Ottawa artists on Twitter, so hopefully I can get some cooperation from local folks to play some of their new music.
There are a ton of awesome netlabels releasing new stuff out there, and there are way more artists releasing their stuff for free online, so I expect 2011 to be filled with some awesome music for the podcast!
