NME Announce 2010 “Cool List”

Bethany Cosentino of Best Coast
NME have once again announced their “cool list”, the last time I checked Alice Glass topped the 2008 Cool List and I couldn’t find one for last year. Laura Marling apparently had enough cool to top the list this year but they don’t really tell you why, they tell you you have buy the magazine to find out, Janelle Monae is number 2, Kanye West is number 3 and Best Coast’s Bethany Cosentino is number 4. There are a surprising number of Americans on the list and a bunch of people from bands that the NME are currently praising as the next best thing. You can see the full list below.
