Top 11 of 2011

November 29, 2011

2011 was a surprisingly excellent year for music.  We’ve still got a month left and I’m already trimming albums off my year end “Best Of” list to keep it down to a manageable 11.

Assuming nothing totally face-melting comes out in the next couple of weeks, my Best 11 of ’11, in no particular order, will be:

Beirut – The Rip Tide

Wolves in the Throne Room – Celestial Lineage

Cold Cave –  Cherish the Light Years

Peste Noire – L’Ordure a l’etat Pur

Futur Skullz – Futur Skullz

Future Islands – On the Water

Wye Oak – Civilian

James Blake – James Blake

Des Ark – Don’t Rock the Boat, Sink the Fucker

Krallice –  Diotima

and…

Lou Reed w/ Metallica – Lulu (for it’s comedic value)

 

Honorable Mention:

Wugazi – 13 Chambers

The War on Drugs – Slave Ambient

Battles – Gloss Drop
