12.22.11 Off The Beaten Track Favs Of '11

Off The Beaten Track Favs Of '11

Quick and sloppy compilation of albums that stuck with me of this year. Hoping this is a much more interesting year-end list than your average Pitchfork-worship indie-pop fuck shit thing.
12Natural Snow Buildings
Chants Of Niflheim


kind of like Waves Of The Random Sea part 2
11Olafur Arnalds
Living Room Songs


beaut!
10Master Musicians Of Bukkake
Totem Three


Presumably the last of what seems to have been a three-part series of albums. Tribal psychedelic droning at its prime.
9Demdike Stare
Tryptych


This should be higher on the list. Dark and cinematic and psychedelic as fuck.
8Cynic
Carbon-Based Anatomy


BIJA!
7Battles
Gloss Drop


At first I wasn't so sure about this, but every time a song off this album comes on I get super stoked. Most innovative and fresh use of typical rock instruments I've heard this year.
6Chad VanGaalen
Diaper Island


Been a while since I've listened to it, but every single song on here is great. Very endearing, that Chad Van.
5C418
Volume Alpha


The Minecraft soundtrack. A charming and surprising ambient adventure.
4Corrupted
Garten Der Unbewusstheit


Bleak and overwhelming. Dynamic
3Deafheaven
Roads To Judah


Doesn't break any musical boundaries, but sounds like everything I've ever wished for from black metal. Well produced, moving, relentless without being monotonous, and dynamic.
2Natural Snow Buildings
Waves Of The Random Sea


Album that first submerged me into the vast discography of the French duo. A druggy trancy exploration. Layers and layers of flowing sounds - too many instruments to name.
1A Winged Victory For The Sullen
A Winged Victory For The Sullen


Absolutely moving. Comprised of a member or few of Stars Of The Lid.
