    I can't get over how good Kaputt by Destroyer is. http://grooveshark.com/playlist/Kaputt+/43164152?src=5 What are your 2011 faves?
    honestly was surprised to see this mentioned here, in the first post no less. definitely the best album i've heard so far this year. actually Miami Horror's Illumination is the best album i've heard all year but it came out in 2010. unfortunately I missed Destroyer a couple months back cuz it was raining out and i was sick and just didn't feel like getting over to the show, biggest regret so far this year. also: The Holidays - Post Paradise (technically 2010, but released in Japan 2011-does that count? haha) Cut Copy - Zonoscope Friendly Fires - Pala Starfucker - Reptilians Bibio - Mind Bokeh Holy Ghost - Holy Ghost and anticipating Junior Boys - It's All True

    I'm enjoying the new Fleet Foxes album, as well as Rome by Danger Mouse.

    TV on the Radio is probably my favorite so far.

    Also liked Kurt Vile and James Blake.

    Funny, as long as Destroyer has been around, I just discovered it this year. Some of the songs are so good that, at certain sublime moments, they provide a fleeting glimpse into the musical equivalent of satori. I'm not even being pretentious - I actually mean it.

    I was hoping the new Panda Bear album would be my favorite, but it's been the most disappointing album in a long while.

    I forgot about Cut Copy, probably deserves a mention. And why has no one told me about this video before now?

    So far i've liked 'Helplessness Blues' by Fleet Foxes, and I haven't listened to it yet but I think Explosions in the Sky put something out kind of recently.

    I just read about 'Rome' and want to check it out. I didn't think it was that sort of project but I also think I heard they might try to tour w/ it.

    The new Bon Iver should be pretty good too.

    totally agree, like the woodwinds on Suicide Demo and that buildup towards the end of Bay of Pigs... incredible. Chinatown, too. also only heard about them this year (saw the video for Kaputt and was instantly hooked). i think from what i read this album is their first foray into the really jazzy elements, and damn it sounds good. i laughed when one reviewer likened them to a Kenny G revival, lol. with so many standout tracks i have yet to hear any other 2011 release that's as complete. Zonoscope might be a distant second but that's about it.
