The voices of NPR have started posting their Top Ten Records of 2010 and we are happy to announce that our very own Heligoats made Stephen Thompson’s Top Ten at #10!
Stephen Thompson is an editor and reviewer for NPR Music. He also curates Song of the Day and appears as a frequent panelist on the podcasts All Songs Considered. Of the Heligoats wonderful Goodness Gracious, he says “The Heligoats’ Chris Otepka doesn’t write songs so much as he stuffs them with ideas until they brim over with imagination.”
Check out the rest of this piece and other NPR notables lists here.
For those of you clamoring for more from The Heligoats, you’re in luck. They have a split 10” coming out in January with their pal, Sam Humans called Live Free/Let Loose. Check out the first single below!
