TrashKozel’s Favorite Music of 2011

This is what happens when you’re busy: A year-end, best-of list posted a week into February.  I would have loved to give this the attention that I gave it last year, but alas, time wasn’t willing to facilitate.  So, with no ado at all…

And my 5 favorite EPs…

  3. ††† (Crosses) // EP †
  4. Old Lights // Like Strangers EP
  5. Broken Bells // Meyrin Fields

2011 was a weird year for music.  I feel like there were a lot of disappointments, and also a lot of albums that I know I really like, but still feel really new to me.  Very few albums got stuck on repeat.  I may or may not make a Days & Nights of 2011 mix.  Depends on demand… 😉
