Favorite Albums of 2011

Looking through this list again I’ve realized how few new artists there are on it as compared to years past.  For whatever reason, I didn’t have the energy to listen to a lot of new music this year so I stuck with new albums from artists I already knew.  Maybe next year that will change.

10.  Wye Oak – Civilian
