2011

Not necessarily the best of 2011, but the albums that struck me as rsomething rnew/awesome/just plain fun to listen to.rIn no particular order (except the alphabetical kind):
1Youth Lagoon
The Year of Hibernation


So fragile and intimate, yet grandiose at the same time. This one is for headphones and a walk in the park. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b4_x063rhX4
2WU LYF
Go Tell Fire To The Mountain


Some fun and upbeat post-rock. This is what I wish my band sounded like sometimes... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HGgni1nGGY
3Wilco
The Whole Love


Another great rock record. The first track 'Art of Almost' blew my brains out on the first listen. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWP4bI37mCE
4The Weeknd
House of Balloons


Probably the first R&B record I've ever sunk my teeth into. The atmosphere is just too interesting to pass up. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8ex38L8xtNI
5 M83
Hurry Up, We're Dreaming


Straight from alternative 1987. 'Midnight City' has a mad video too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dX3k_QDnzHE
6Little Scream
The Golden Record


Only recently discovered this one but it was too good to not include on the list. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pmfkUMszIwo
7Girls
Father, Son, Holy Ghost


Classic classic rock done right. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3eVaYQ24Yy4
8Fucked Up
David Comes to Life


A really fun punk record. Checkout the pitchfork feature where they play the album straight through, with a string quartet and everything. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhgOt7YFN0I
9Destroyer
Kaputt


Weird, smooth, sax solo! Video is bonkers http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pf-ONpLXzGs
10Andrew Jackson Jihad
Knife Man


First few minutes: "wow this is going to be annoying". Played 3 times in a row. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Er4Gx7x_bVM
