The War on Drugs Slave Ambient
One of the most beautiful things about modern music is that the spirit of Americana has never come close to declining, as the likes of the Gaslight Anthem, the Hold Steady, and the State Lottery have carried on the legacy sparked by Bruce Springsteen and the Replacements. Although existing most commonly in punk rock, a few outliers have come into the mix of modern Americana; most recently the War on Drugs. There is something oh so familiar about the band?s second LP Slave Ambient, whether has to do with the fact that lead singer Adam Granduciel sounds like a Bob Dylan/Tom Petty hybrid, or that the music is perfectly on point in capturing the sentiment of Americana. And yet, it isn't clear that something like this has been done before. Fusing together your typical rock music with shoegaze influences, Slave Ambient sits back and takes the scenic route to the promised land, eventually exploding into its stunning climax. Slowing down even more towards the middle of the record and reaching a point of immense tranquility with "City Reprise #12," Slave Ambient transitions into the ultimate underscore in "Baby Missles;" a moment which cannot be rivaled by nearly any release over the past decade. Elevated by everything from the keyboards, driving rhythm section, smooth leads, and harmonica solos, "Baby Missles" is the Springsteen-esque Americana classic that catapults Slave Ambient to the top of the 2011 list, essentially summing up everything that the record is about in three and a half compelling minutes. And god damn is it a resounding ride.

WU LYF Go Tell Fire to the Mountain
When it comes down to it all, one does not need to even have a clue about what WU LYF’s message is about. Inevitably, the more we find out about WU LYF, the less significant they will become. Go Tell Fire to the Mountain isn’t just striking because of its uniqueness and oddly infectious hooks, or the fact that the record is ballsy, jubilant, or flat-out beautiful at any given time. The Manchester natives’ debut brings about the remarkable sentiment of unity within its anthems, just as Titus Andronicus’ The Monitor had done. And isn’t that the greatest message of all?

4.0 excellent

Bomb the Music Industry! Vacation
For the longest time this year, Vacation was the most frustrating release in some time. No ska, clean vocals, and almost devoid of that vintage Bomb the Music Industry! chaos, Vacation was ticketed for a one-way trip to the honorable mentions list in July; an unsettling position for a BTMI! record. Yet, after finally accepting Vacation for an uplifting pop-record as it is, BTMI’s 2011 installment serves the spirit of orgcore punk with a sheer enjoy-ability factor: whether this is conveyed through the ever infectious “Vocal Coach,” “Why, Oh Why, Oh Why,” and “Hurricane Waves” or the fact that “Can’t Complain” and “Campaign for a Better Weekend” are some of the best lower-key tracks in Rosenstock and crew’s arsenal. Vacation is far from BTMI’s best record and that’s just fine, because it stands on its own enough to be celebrated as one of the better releases of 2011.

Maybeshewill Sing The Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony
Maybeshewill I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone
I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone is not exactly a complete shift in direction for Maybeshewill, but is evidence that the post-rockers are evolving in terms of musicianship and diversity. The haziness of the message is what prevents the record from reaching an astronomical level however, as I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone does not pack the same poignant punch as Sing the Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony or even Not For Want of Trying. Maybeshewill’s preceding releases were successful in the fact that the inspiration and sincerity was apparent, but with I Was Here For a Moment, Then I Was Gone, this is left open to debate. Regardless, Maybeshewill has made an elaborate statement with their third record, even if one thing remains true: Maybeshewill is post-rock without the bullshit.
