Okay, so UK-based music news magazine NME last month released their list of best new bands of 2010. It, of course, named a handful of local bands. Now today comes music blog Stereogum's 40 best new bands of 2010. Once again, local heroes are named.

No surprises with Best Coast and Warpaint making the list. The other three included are Active Child, Baths and Glasser. And, yeah, that's it. New York, especially, Brooklyn topped the list with most bands represented.
