The Best Songs Of 2011 (So Far): Glenn’s List

 The first half of 2011 has been a solid start to the year. If the rest of the year can keep up with the first half we will be in good shape. We saw some big releases, but there was also plenty else to keep me busy listening. A highlight has been getting to know the Seattle music scene, as you can tell from a good 5 songs from my top 15 from the area (and the picture of Gasworks Park). The Blue Scholars made it on twice because of their amazing live performance and a great new album. They aren’t really in a tight order. Hope that you enjoy!

15. The Antlers – Parentheses 

14. Tennis – Marathon

13. Balto – The Railyard

12. Thao & Mirah – Little Cups

11. Port St. Willow – Stay Even

10. Raphael Saadiq – Stone Rollin’

9. Blue Scholars – Marion Sunshine

8. My Morning Jacket – Holdin On To Black Metal

7. Fleet Foxes – Helplessness Blues

6. Made In Heights – Skylark Interabang?!

5. Lemolo – Whale Song

4. Bon Iver – Holocene

    Cinemetropolis is definitely my favorite album of the year (I found out about its release thanks to you guys). Fleeted Foxes too. Discovered this blog a few months ago and have been following it ever since. Found some really great music here. Thanks and keep doin what your doin.

      Blue Scholars are ridiculous. Glad you are liking the music, Alex! Thanks for the comment.
