Fave music of 2011

Compared to everyone else in my family, I am a total loser in terms of music.  They generally turn me on to what they are listening to.  Their brains are filled with singles and new artists.  The good news is that there is always amazing music being played in our house.  I pay attention but not like they do.  Maybe 2012?

Here is my fave music of 2011 in no particular order.  I have to say that the lists with singles make the most sense based on how we listen to music these days but I am still in complete album mode. 

Codes and Keys Death Cab for Cutie

The Head and the Heart

Beirut –The Rip Tide

Iron and Wine – Kiss Each Other Clean

Bon Iver – Perth


Smith Westerns – Weekend


J. Mascis, Several Shades of Why

Dale Earnhardt Jr. It’s a Corporate World

Watch the Throne Jay Z and Kanye West

Wiz Khalifa – Rolling Papers (this year or last?)

Antlers Burst Apart

Pepper Rabbit



Florence and the Machine, Ceremonials

I also listened to a bunch of rap thanks to Josh.  Mac Miller, Blue Side Park, Peanut Butter and Swelly, Chitty Bang and Drake, Take Care.
