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

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

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

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.
Volume Alpha

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

Bleak and overwhelming. Dynamic
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.
