There's a lot to see and hear from Young Empires -- from the dark 808 State grooves in "Glory of the Night," to the dance-punk "Against the Wall" and the popular "Rain of Gold," today's featured track (below) remixed by Brooklyn's French Horn Rebellion, who recently played Toledo.

In the summer or fall of 2005 United State of Electronica (better known as U.S.E.) rolled into Cleveland's Beachland Tavern. They sort of took over the place -- with their opener of choice, Seattle's The Sleepers, and a merch table sponsored by KEXP, a Seattle mecca of indie rock.

Well, here we are on the last day of 2010. Another year, another buzzband, another blog's year-end list all come and gone.
Releases by Caribou, Ariel Pink, Mac Miller and the LA hip-hop collective, Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, proved to be worthy contenders of defining this year's sound. Each was a little familiar, but also really fucking weird. So without spoiling my #1 selection, read on to see what these, and the rest of the tracks on this list, did for my ears this year.
25. Glasser – “Home”
24. Big Boi – “Daddy Fat Sax”
23. Flight Facilities – “Crave You” (Bxentric Remix)
21. Mecanico - "Barcelona"
