As we've reached the midway point of 2010, tomorrow in our weekly Taking sides column we'll each share our five favorite albums of the year to date. But many of my musical faves so far can't be found on LPs. So below are my 10 favorite 7"s of the year, with an MP3 from each. (Links to order the wax versions are included as well.) They are all various degrees of fuzzy, jangly, jagged and catchy. Enjoy.

"World's Destroyed" is outstanding. Mind Spiders is the best thing to come out of Fort worth in...ever?

Malitz won't say it but "Here Comes Trouble" by The Cheniers deserves a mention if you're talking about the top 7" of 2010.
