Ah, another year and another post that I dred. In light of my dislike for lengthy drawn-out “SONGS OF THE YEAR” (imagine that being said by that guy who does movie trailers) I am going to make this pretty easy for you…because, hey, I like you and it’s the holidays. I’m going to post my favorite songs of the past year in no particular order and with no blabbering! HAPPY HOLIDAYS! Oh and if you want them all in a playlist click here: the terribly cliché “songs of 2011” post.
Mother Mother – Baby Don’t Dance
Clap Your Hands Say Yeah – Maniac
Xaphoon Jones – The Jackson Pit
Santigold ft. Karen O – GO
Delta Spirit – Bushwick Blues
Delta Spirit are probably one my better finds this year
Girls – Honey Bunny
Holy Ghost! – Some Children ft. Michael Macdonald
Jay-Z & Kanye West – No Church in the Wild
Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues
Future Islands – Long Flight
The Sheepdogs – I Don’t Know
Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks – Gorgeous Georgie
Unsurprisingly Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks put out a sweet album in 2011.
Foo Fighters – White Limo
The Strokes – Under Cover of Darkness
Hey Rosetta! – Seeds
Jenn Grant – Oh My Heart
Alex Turner – Piledriver Waltz
Both a great soundtrack and movie. I suggest checking both out when you get a chance.
