  • HEPPOLO's TOP 200 of 2010s (Top 3)



    The decade is coming to an end so get ready for the most pretentious list here on UKMix. It's gonna be full of personal takes on capitalism, dull songs about anything but love, and songs you have never heard and would not even pay attention to.

        198. Kælan Mikla - Kalt

        Country: Iceland
        Genre: Post-punk, Darkwave
        Year: 2015



        Their later catalogue made me re-evaluate their debut. It's quite unusual and shatters all those post-punk stereotypes.

          Country: United Kingdom
          Genre: Shoegazing, Alternative Rock

          Shoegazing/Dream-Pop influenced alternative rock. This band had the british take on that Silversun Pickups' sound.

              Thank you for the comment. I still listen to Twin Atlantic.
              Hopefully you ain't gonna be too disappointed with the rest of the countdown (not much pop there).

                196. METZ - Wet Blanket
                Country: Canada
                Genre: Noise Rock, Post-Hardcore
                Year: 2012



                One of Keanu Reeves' favourite bands. Who would have thought? A noisy and gutsy punch of a song.

                  Year: 2012



                  I thought it was good enough for our own FSC.

                    194. The Naked And Famous - Young Blood

                    Country: New Zealand
                    Genre: Synthpop, Electropop
                    Year: 2010



                    A minor international hit here. Shame they never managed to expand their popularity beyond the initial hype.

                      193. Anouk - The Good Life

                      Country: Netherlands
                      Genre; Baroque Pop, Singer-songwriter
                      Year: 2013



                      "Sad Singalong Songs" is a masterpiece, yet I prefer "The Good Life" and its menacing instrumental to "Birds".

                        192. Ralph Kaminski - Wszystkiego najlepszego

                        Country: Poland
                        Genre; Baroque Pop, Sophisti-Pop
                        Year: 2019



                        A very atmospheric and reflective song to say goodbye to the one Ralph loved wishing his lover all the best.

                          191. Gwenno - Patriarchaeth

                          Country: Wales
                          Genre; Electronic, Synthpop
                          Year: 2015



                          What can I say? Gwenno is filling the void and maybe some may start learning cornish because of her music.

                            Just checked out "The Good Life". It's beautiful.

                                    194. The Naked And Famous- Young Blood - this is an indie classic imho. I haven't played it in years, I loved it back in my indie teens. I think I even played that whole album, but don't remember anything from it. Listening back, I don't think this aged that well... sounds too early 2010s indie pop I think Birdy's cover transformed it into something beautiful that I can play anytime because piano ballads are (mostly) ageless.

                                    193. Anouk - The Good Life - just played this for the first time because I love Birds, it's really good. Her videos (well, at least this and Birds) are great, too.

                                      I think it's because it was essentially a lo-fi indie production back in NZ which wasn't expected to hit big initially.

                                      And those two MVs are connected (birds being a death sign).

                                        188. Detachments - Holiday Romance

                                        Country: United Kingdom

                                        Year: 2010


                                        Here you see me back to my more post-punk-ish roots instead of all the candy sweet music I prefer nowadays.

                                          Another lo-fi blast from the early side of this decade.

                                            Now we have a subtle portuguese language. Sounds very pleasant to me.

                                              185. Grand Blanc - L'amour fou

                                              Country: France
                                              Genre: Synthpop, Post-Punk Revival
                                              Year: 2016



                                              The song failed to chart in my annual 2016 chart (a case of very late discovery), but kept climbing up the ranks.

                                                Genre: Pop Rock
                                                Year: 2011


                                                The farewell single by the all-girl pop/rock band. I also love their other single, "I Lie Awake", which fell a little bit short of making this top 200. It's fairly standard pop rock, but still I have fond memories of listening to this back in the early 2010s.

                                                  Country: Finland
                                                  Genre: Pop Rock, Electronic Rock

                                                  The chorus reminded me of mid 90s Republica so much.
