LOVER’s Top Ten Albums Of 2010

As 2010 draws to a close we reflect on the year’s most memorable moments and, as always, the albums that characterized the year through good times and bad. To do just that, Pedestrian’s Top Ten Of 2010 series taps a savvy selection of friends, bands, bloggers and other people with admirable taste to give us their favourite songs and albums of the year.

The lovely duo behind LOVER, Nic Briand and Susien Chong, shared with us the TOP 10 Albums played on the LOVER HQ ipod for 2010, and gave us a sneak peak at their forthcoming swim and apparel collections.
