As much as it pains me to say it, I’m afraid that it’s looking as though 2010 is going to be a shitty, shitty year for music.

With so many good bands having just released (or perhaps about to release) brilliant records, it seems that there is no magic as yet saved up for the new year (excepting the possibility of a new EP by Alexisonfire).

Exactly how bad, you ask? From here, it’s looking like it could be so bad that we see the rise of another, lesser form of music. You know how things seem to cycle around and provide openings for newer, ridiculous bands to emerge? It’s called a ‘music pandemic’, and we might be seeing one of those just around the corner. It’s actually what everyone has been talking about, if you’ve heard the word ‘pandemic’ lately. That, and nothing else.

I know how you feel, I’m a little frightened myself. There’s really no way to prepare for this, but to be safe, be sure to listen to a lot of the music you love. And watch out for the words, “sound like Vampire Weekend.” Just in case.

    Perhaps if we compile a playlist of all the awesome albums from 2009, we would be creating a vaccine of some kind?
