The Baltimore City Paper's annual Top Ten issue is out this week, and I helped with the music lists, of which there were many. In the Top Ten Albums list, I wrote blurbs about Miguel and Dead Sara, and in the Top Ten Local Albums list, I wrote about Dan Deacon and Lower Dens. But this year we also did something new: a bunch of Top Ten Releases By Genre lists, including my Top Ten Local Hip-Hop Albums and Top Ten Baltimore Club Tracks.
Also in this week's issue, I wrote a feature about the artist who topped my Local Hip-Hop list, Von Vargas, and as usual, The Short List of the concerts to check out in the city this week.
