|Albums I Discovered In Two Thousand N' Eleven.|
|1||Bomb The Music Industry!|
This might very well be AOTY, for me.
Bon Iver, Bon Iver
Doesn't have the permanent "classic" feel of For Emma, but it's as good in its
|3||Jets To Brazil|
Orange Rhyming Dictionary
Sea Anemone is such a fantastic song. Was on a 90s emo kick. (One of my favorite genres, now. Diary by Sunny Day
Real Estate has made it's way nto my top 10 albums.)
|4||The Mountain Goats|
The lyrics to "No Children" hooked me immediately. Who doesn't love a good
song about hating your wife?
Was always a huge fan of "Left And Leaving", didn't give this a chance till
recently but I'm glad I did.
Some don't like it, but I think it's fucking great, definitely one of the better
releases of this year. Treading Paper is fucking great.
Discovered this band this year. One of the best and most pissed off hardcore
bands out there right now.
Reminds me of a more ambient/slowed down Sigur Ros, beautiful stuff. Really is
...and so we destroyed everything
So far, my second favorite post rock release of the year.
Plains Of The Purple Buffalo
And this would be 1st favorite.
Was always a big fan of Ian Mackaye's stuff, but hadn't listened to Embrace till
recently, and now they're probably my favorite of his band's. The bridge
between Minor Threat and Fugazi, both sound wise and chronologically.
Axe To Fall
Have always listened to Converge, but I didn't really come to absolutely adore
them till this year.
Now in my top 10 of all time, see above note.
If I could scream for any band.....
|15||Hot Water Music|
I've typed a lot and don't want to type anymore but yeah this album is great.
