We don’t always talk about music on this site, but surely you lovely lads and ladies have just as strong opinions on what you listen to as to what you watch. It’s the season of Best Of lists, but I figured we’d take a different approach with the music of 2011. I’ll get the ball rolling by listing my favorite albums, the ones in constant rotation in my car and on my iPod.
Here’s what I listened to this year:
Adele, “21”; The Civil Wars, “Barton Hollow”
Death Cab for Cutie, “Codes and Keys”; Drive-By Truckers, “Go-Go Boots”
Fleet Foxes, “Helplessness Blues”; The Head and the Heart, “The Head and the Heart”
Lady Gaga, “Born This Way”; My Morning Jacket, “Circuital”
Various, Drive OST; Wilco, “The Whole Love”
So, what did y’all listen to?
