Last week the PMACAST celebrated its twenty-fifth installment on its one year anniversary — yet no one wished us a Happy Birthday! What rude listeners we have. :P
Anyway, moving on to the twenty-sixth episode, we are looking at 2010's first quarter in music releases. I've assembled a 17-song playlist that will hopefully give you a nice taste of the album's we've liked that will be released in Twenty-Ten. Download the mp3 below, find the tracklist after the jump.

*Warpaint's Exquisite Corpse was actually released in October 2009, but we were consumed by year-end and decade-end lists to appreciate it then, so we're bulking it up with the great music we've heard in 2010.
**Freelance Whales' Weathervanes will be officially released by Frenchkiss Records this spring.
