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 8/11/2011

Hey, Bandcamp Recommendations. Good stuff throughout. All free of course. Buy your own copies and support the bands whenever possible in whatever way possible.


“Santiago rock trio. Formed in 2010 near the 27F earthquake and displaying a simple idea, taking distance from the vocal paradigms and offering musical structures that have not been heard before. The debut album, entirely self-produced, consists of 9 tracks and while the band’s style is closer to math-rock you can see a post-rock influence in the delivery and that is the reason for the name Paroxetine, with a mission to raise, motivate or outrage in a style that sets them apart from the depressing post-rock, without leaving aside the emotion in each of the subjects we present in our record while we ride a bike, we go to funerals and witness terrible childhoods inside a country that punch us in the face everyday, but do not depress or beat us in anyway.”
