My 2011 Mixtape

It's the most magical time of year. Yes, I'm speaking of the time of year when every armchair music critic, myself included, starts reeling off their "best of" lists. Since with last year's list I finally gave up pretending that I ever listen to full albums anymore, here is a mix of the songs from 2011 that captured my attention. If you're on Spotify, you can listen to the whole thing there.
  1. "A Candle's Fire" by Beirut from The Rip Tide

  2. "Born Alone" by Wilco from The Whole Love


  3. "Tree By The River" by Iron & Wine from Kiss Each Other Clean 

  4. "Gangsta" by Tune-Yards from WHOKILL

  5. "Barton Hollow" by The Civil Wars from Barton Hollow

  6. "Get Lost" by Tom Waits from Bad As Me 

  7. "Two Against One (feat. Jack White)" by Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi  from Rome

  8. "Mustache Man" by Cake from Showroom Of Compassion

  9. "Screws Get Loose" by Those Darlins from Screws Get Loose

  10. "Fixin' To Die"  by G-Love  from Fixin' To Die

  11. "White Port" by Old 97's from The Grand Theatre Vol. 2 

  12. "Calamity Song" by The Decemberists  from The King Is Dead

  13. "Hanging from a Hit" by Okkervil River  from I Am Very Far
