Q1 2011

what i've heard this year so far, ranked. Still need Dodos, PtH, Raekwon, Tim Hecker, and The Weeknd
20Lupe Fiasco

You know something's wrong when the guy who made Food & Liquor and
The Cool is on a list lower than the guy who did "Black and Yellow".
19Wiz Khalifa
Rolling Papers

We get it, Wiz. You like weed. Now go away.
Cape Dory

Probably the most generic indie pop album I've ever heard.
17Cloud Nothings
Cloud Nothings

Kind of like if Wavves didn't suck as much.
Native Speaker

I was excited when I heard this described as "Animal Collective with a
female vocalist". It's pretty alright, but it doesn't even come close to an AC
15The Strokes

Has a bunch of really good songs, but then some utter garbage. "You're So
Right" is one of the worst songs I've heard this year.
14Smith Westerns
Dye it Blonde

Love the more polished sound on this album. It has some great tracks
among some mediocre ones. This band has a lot of potential.
13Toro Y Moi
Underneath the Pine

Like this one a little more than Causers of This. Nice and chill.

This album's great, I probably would've liked it more if it wasn't so similar to
bands like Dino Jr.
11Julianna Barwick
The Magic Place

A really nice album, but she's not as good as the other people who make
the same kind of ambient/drone that she does (especially Grouper)
10Iron & Wine
Kiss Each Other Clean

This one's died on me too. Still a pretty cool album.
9The Decemberists
The King is Dead

Loved it at first, but it's died on me more recently. Probably the weakest
Decemberists release imo.
8Bright Eyes
The People's Key

It doesn't touch the Fevers and Mirrors through I'm Wide Awake era, but
it's Conor's best album in years and hopefully it gets him back on track.
7Lykke Li
Wounded Rhymes

This album was surprising, because I found her debut really boring and
6PJ Harvey
Let England Shake

Easily her best album since the Dry/Rid of Me era.
5Frank Ocean
Nostalgia, Ultra

4 Defeater
Empty Days & Sleepless Nights

This album brought me back into hardcore after a little absence.

Wasn't really into Destroyer's work before this, but this is fantastic.
2James Blake
James Blake

So simple, but so beautiful.
The King of Limbs

Screw everyone, I love this. My third favorite Radiohead album.
