eleven for '11

favorite eleven songs of 2011
  1. "amor fati", washed out. naturally.
  2. "the broken places", moby. moby combined sounds just right to create a mellow mood.
  3. "keep pushing on", john maus. john maus is so rad.
  4. "posters", youth lagoon. love the whole album. give this song some time, once it really starts, you'll know it.
  5. "raw umber twilight", WALLS. one of my newest favorite running songs.
  6. "somebody that i used to know (feat. kimbra)", gotye. i'll admit it, don't know any other gotye. but i am going to explore on account of how much i love this track.
  7. "steep hills of vicodin tears", a winged victory for the sullen. the ambient stars of the lid coupled with piano. a beauty.
  8. "te amo", atlas sound. bradford cox is the shit. he made it onto my bests last year with deerhunter. keep it up, bradford, it's that good.
  9. "towers", bon iver. hands down one of my favorite concerts this year. 
  10. "we have everything", young galaxy. i'm not sick of this song, and i've been listening to it for almost a whole year.
  11. "whole love", wilco. i'm usually not a fan of wilco. john said this song sounds reminiscent of the grateful dead. that explains it.
