Just a reminder that Matt Stevens was the blog's 2010 Artist of the Year, riding the strength of his remarkable album Ghost. Thanks to Matt for sending me an advance copy of Relic, his new album that debuts Monday. To warm you up, be reminded why he topped my list last year. And don't worry, I'll post Relic when it's officially released. Matt is based in London, so I delve back into the 2010 vacation for the accompanying photo that, as usual, has nothing to do with anything in the post.
