Chuck Daley - Beartrap PR / Tiny Engines

Best of 2010 (in alphabetical order):
The Conversions - Spineless Wonders (Ride The Snake)
Dead Mechanical - Addict Rhythms (Traffic Street / Toxic Pop)
End Of A Year - You Are Beneath Me (Deathwish)
Forming - Self-Titled (Vitriol Records)
Hot New Mexicans - Self-Titled (Houseplant / Recess)
The Menzingers - Chamberlain Waits (Red Scare)
Merchandise - (Strange Songs) In The Dark (Katorga Works / Drugged Conscience)
The Saddest Landscape - You Will Not Survive (Panic Records)

Honorable Mention:

Big Kids - Hoop Dreams (Topshelf / Protagonist)
Good Luck - Demonstration 2010 (self-released)

Mountain Asleep - Smile Medicine (Kid Sister)

Note: I thought that including Tiny Engines and Beartrap releases would be cheesy, but if I did, Everyone Everywhere, Castevet, Annabel, Bars Of Gold, Restorations and Junior Battles would all make the cut for sure.

You own a PR firm called Beartrap? Holy crap, that's quite possibly the best PR agency name ever. I want to work for you.
