Although it was an amazing year for new music, I spent a large chunk of my time delving into the past and discovering many albums and artist that I have overlooked or have only recently become aware of. I'm sure that there was a plethora of music that I missed while I was traveling back in time to mine for aural gems, probably many new albums that I just plain glossed over or bands that I felt fell short of the hype surrounding them. However, these 10 albums are ones that struck a particular chord with me in 2011. I've posted standout tracks that I feel represent each records' tone (and forgive me for posting a reissue in a "new" best-of the year list-"Nada!" is just that good!).
Very excited! Just finished up the cover for my friends collection of horror comics set in winter time. Hopefully, the stories will be printed into a traditional paper format some time in the coming months. In addition, they are slated to be released digitally via Graphicly.com. A launch event is in the works for sometime in January at Horrorbles in Berwyn. Cool shit! More news to come in the following weeks! Keep an eye out!
