Top 20 of 2011 – Bill’s Picks

Well it’s that time of year again. Time to name my favorite albums of 2011. 2011 brought us a lot of good stuff by a lot of great bands. 2011 also brought on a lot of surprises from bands that were really unknown until their material was released or well afterwards. Bandcamp played a huge role in music discovery for me. It turned out hundreds of great albums not only released in 2011 but in years past as well. This list, my favorites as well as honorable mentions, is no way a complete list of what was released this year. There is just to much out there that I don’t either have time to get to, never heard of or won’t discover until well after this year is completely over. I know there’s going to be a few surprises. Let it be known that I listened to a LOT of new albums this year and picking my top 20 out of the hundreds was very hard to do.

20. The Sade – Damned Love – (review) I really didn’t know what to expect when this one came across my desk but I needed to check it out. And check it out I did. I was pretty damn impressed that I listened to the album at least 10 times in a row. In my review I stated “The majority of the album is all alchchol fueled hard rock. Throughout my listening of the album I couldn’t help but think that this is what Social Distortion may sound like if they were more rooted in 70′s hard rock as opposed to their punk roots.” Granted it’s been a few months since I’ve listened to it, it still has a strong spot in my top 20.

Bandcamp Recommendations 5/12/2011

Welcome to another fun fill edition of Bandcamp Recommendations. We’ve got lots of cool stuff for you. Buy what you feel is worth it and support them in any way you can.

The band is Tantric Picasso. The album is Life’s A Bitch and Then You Die so Why Not Laugh Until You Cry? It’s some fine garage rock with a little experimental rock.

Last month we featured a band from India called Bevar Sea and we featured their Trendsetter Sessions. Now that have another set of demos available for download. These are called the Sessions of Chaosand feature a cover of “Dragonaut” originaly done by Sleep.

Youniverse’s Dirty American is next. It’s a little White Stripes, some indie rock and a little hard rock from Memphis, TN.

This is a self titled debut release by a band from Memephis called The Chinamen. It’s heavy, fast and furious (no Vin Diesel, sorry). It’s part punk too but all badass!

Orgasmocosmicaby Snake Thursday rounds off this weeks recommendations with some hard rocking and sometimes sludgy riffs. Certainly heavy.
