My Bad-Ass Favorites Of 2011
Year-end lists are mostly irrelevant except when A.) they are yours or B.) they almost entirely agree with your personal list. Now that I laid the main (albeit burdensome) Beat The Indie Drum machine to rest I’m going to lay out my favorite albums from 2011 in a different way than I have in the past. From now until the end of the year I’ll Tumbl that ish in tens with a link to a track on the album - tracks that almost assuredly were on the BTID monthly mixtapes but there just in case you arrived late or would like a refreshing of sorts.
Also of note - these will be in no order whatsoever, even though some I’ve snogged with more than others. If you’re curious I culled this info from my personal RateYourMusic account here. Disclaimer: Some of them I released on the Big School label and I don’t care what you think about that, yo.
