Extenuating circumstances have kept me from posting my favorite songs and albums of 2010 â€“ namely, eating and drinking my way through the holidays.
We also host an annual New Year’s Eve bash for which I make a mix of 20 or so songs â€“ or whatever will fit on 80-minute CD-Rs â€“ from the past year that we pass out as party favors. Though I’m likely not considering Frightened Rabbits’ The Winter of Mixed Drinks for the short list of my favorite 2010 albums â€“ I still like it quite a bit â€“ The Loneliness and the Scream is a song that made the cut for the CD.
It’s one of the two songs singer Scott Hutchison performed acoustically backstage in Belfast for Bandwidth; Living in Colour was the other. Both were captured on video.
