|North Of 2011|
My top ten releases of the year. It's been a great year, there's almost too many releases to remember.
House of Stone
The most perfect album I've heard in a long time. It's been one of my favorites all year- a perfect mix of ethereal folk, avant-garde, and ambiance. The guy has insane vocals too, the majority of the album is made entirely from his looped vocals, most of the instruments are home made as well.
|2||All the Empires of the World|
This hasn't been out terribly long. But, it's the band's final release, and it's incredible as well. They basically kick out the walls they had around themselves in their excellent album "Blessings" and go crazy. Incredible screams, heavy riffs, soothing guitar tracks, it's all there.
It's phenomenal. Enough said.
|4||This Will Destroy You|
I always wanted them to go this direction. I'm glad they finally did.
So smooth, such a beautiful album. It just flows out of the stereo.
Guadalupe Plata (2011)
Spanish swamp rock heavy on the slide electric guitar. Unique vocals drenched in a layer of reverb add to the whole package nicely. Extremely impressive stuff.
I changed operating systems dozens of times this year, throughout all of it, this was usually my first download. So, I've been listening to it fairly consistently all year, and it's still not getting old.
I still can't figure out quite what this is. But, it's bloody awesome.
Yeah, the EP just came out. So what? It's still awesome. The delivery of 'Bluebird' sold me right away. Such a phenomenal record

Lost in the Glare
Folk-drone. Tell that to all your friends.
|I figured I'd wait until fairly late in the year before I made one of these. That way, I could be sure not to miss any. |
Great year in my opinion.
|Lame, had to edit a description. Lost the album art for Garden Window. Sad day.|
