Lazy-i Best of 2010 Sampler

Better late than never. I almost didn't get around to putting together this year's CD at all. Almost. It's been a hectic holiday season, for all of us. So what better way to "unwind" and reflect on the past year than to listen to this annual "best of the best" collection of bands and music that I've stumbled across as part of my critic chores at The Reader and Well, I can't think of a better way. As has been the case for the past 10 years, a tip o' the hat goes to designer/artist extraordinaire Donovan Beery at for the marvelous CD package design.
