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.

Current Rotation 1/16/2011

Welcome to my Current Rotation. I’ve decided to let you know about what I’ve been listening lately.

1-10’s (pronounced one through ten) This is their 2010 EP that I finally got a chance to listen to. While this EP is only 4 songs, it packs quite a punch. Their sound is like Dirty Sweet and to a lesser degree, Wolfmother. They just released a full length a few weeks back which I look forward to listening to. Both can be heard at their Bandcamp page.

New Band To Burn One To – Gypsy Chief Goliath

As also seen on Heavy Planet

Today’s New Band To Burn One To is Gypsy Chief Golith

I found these guys while browsing through The Obelisk’s forums. I couldn’t keep this to myself, I had to share. They’re heavy as fuck. Fans of Sixty Watt Shamen and Might Nimbus take note, this is right up your alley.

Born from the ashes of their old bands, these musicians helped pave ways in the Canadian stoner rock scene. Now serious about making no bullshit music the members: AL the Yeti Bones (Georgian Skull, The Mighty Nimbus, Mister Bones), John (KEEF), Chris (Salem Saints), Dave (Blood Runs Cold) , Adam (Georgian Skull), and Brodie all have decided to form a pure rock and roll band that dances on the edge of their stoner rock roots as well. When Gypsy Chief Goliath officially became a band, the vibe was electric. This band is going to kick your ass! More to come… (more…)
