SUPER SUPER great music picks! I am really digging on Fleet Foxes! You should check out Frighted Rabbit. I caught them when they opened for Death Cab and they were phenomenal!

I'm happy to see someone else who liked Lights as much as me! My coworker at my internship in London played that album nonstop when it first came out, so I grew to love it!

I've gotta say, 2011 was a bit slow in terms of awesome music for me. There were a handful of real gems - Bon Iver, Feist, Bjork were all wonderful - but there wasn't as many fantastic releases as in previous years, in my opinion. Especially compared to all the awesomeness of 2010. But here's to lots and lots of lovely sounds for our ears in 2012! xo.
