Gen 6 2012, 6:08 di StokkaI don't know if I should be surprised or not by the fact that the albums I most anticipated turned out to be the ones I liked the most, but I kind of am. I hope this is not because I'm growing older and less open minded, but because the established artists actually created the best music. Anyways, my favorite albums of 2011:
Album of the Year: Feist - Metals
Radiohead - The King of Limbs
The Roots - Undun
Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi - Rome
Kurt Vile- Smoke Ring for My Halo
Real Estate - Days
Austra - Feel It Break
I'll update when I find out more about which of my favorite music of 2011 was actually released in 2011.
Favorite discoveries of 2011 (not released in 2011):
Bohren & der Club of Gore
Releases I look especially forward to in 2012:
Look out for March 6th: Bowerbirds and Andrew Bird
Ignore this part:

Okay, so the show was pretty awesome. A solid two hours of playing from Conor and his band. This was only my second time seeing Bright Eyes (first time in over 5 years) and I left really happy with the performance.
I was a bit worried when my friend bought us tix to the first night, but I am much happier with the set he played for us than the 2nd night.
Here were the problems:
-no Land Locked Blues or At the Bottom of Everything (personal preference, I know)
