Album of the Year 2011

A quick post: It’s time to declare my favorite album that came out in 2011.  The winner is:

The King is Dead–The Decemberists.  A beautiful collection of beautiful songs.  It came out the first few weeks of 2011, and there was nothing I came back to as much.

Bonus Award: Best Album I Discovered in 2011 that Actually Came Out Earlier: Rend Collective Experiment–Organic Family Hymnal.  These guys are golden–seriously, of all the artists I’ve seen, these guys most make me want to say, “Be my friend.”  They are incredible live.  The CD is also great, but give it time to grow on you.  Can’t wait for the new album–six days!!!!!
