Top Ten Albums of 2010 by Shawn Reed (Wet Hair, Night People)

Here in Iowa (one-half of OMGV is in IA), people that appreciate experimental music can be few-and-far-between, depending on the city. For that reason, we’ve got huge respect for Shawn Reed, the hardworking man from Wet Hair, Raccoo-oo-oon (now defunct), and the amazing Night People label. He sent one of the most interesting 2010 lists […]
