LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

There's so much new music out there, it's sometimes hard to pick who to check out. Today UK-based music news magazine NME released it's 50 Best News Bands of 2010 list -- as they describe it, "the 50 bands who've blown our minds over the past few months."

Since we're Los Angeles, a good number of local bands are given props, including Warpaint, Avi Buffalo, Best Coast, Grouplove, Zola Jesus, Foster the People, Kisses, Funeral Party, Active Child and Glasser.

Congrats to all!
