    1YRON was born out of the notion of reviewing records exactly one year after their initial release date. This alternative to reviewing a record as and when it is released is an attempt to understand a record better within the context of its fairly recent absorption into mainstream or underground consciousness. For the past seven months 1YRON has focused on reviewing some of 2010's best records. With 2011 drawing to a close and with 2012 just around the corner, it's almost time to focus again on 2011's releases. Over the next year 1YRON will continue to review records on their first birthdays, the majority of which will feature in this list.

    There's never much sense or clarity when putting together end of year lists because individual opinion ultimately rules over structure and ordering in such instances. However, we all feel compelled to at least attempt them. As usual, 2011 was a brilliant year for music in a similar vein to 2010 and, as usual…

  • Bon Iver - S/T

    I, for one, am glad Justin Vernon didn’t return to his secluded cabin in the woods to record his follow-up to For Emma, Forever Ago because that sounds too much like the plot to Evil Dead 2, and Mr. Vernon takes himself too seriously to pull a Sam Raimi. Instead, the man with a chilling falsetto must’ve listened to a lot of TV on the Radio and maybe some Iron & Wine. No shame in that, but he hasn’t yet found the right balance to incorporate all his new inspirations.

    1)Perth: From the first few guitar notes, I worry if Mr. Vernon’s going easy listening on us but, by the first hook, when he repeats the first few guitar notes with amped up distortion after a few building snare rolls, he’s done something else entirely—expanded his sound.

    2)Minnesota, WI: But he’s not done expanding. Here, he drops his falsetto to a vocal more typical of TV on the Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe. …

  • One Song. Each day. Every day. (2011)

    Jan 2 2011, 6h59 por lassaucepan

    The title says it. Every day i'm going to pick a song I think represents that day the best and I'll even give a little explanation why.

    Reasons I may pick a song:

    I listened to it a lot.
    I had it in my head.
    I was blown away by it.
    I discovered it.
    I rediscovered it.
    I heard it somewhere special.
    I listened to the lyrics in a new way.
    I learned something about it.
    I cried to it.
    I saw it performed.
    It's a really fucking good song.

    Saturday, Jan. 1: Animal Collective - Bluish - Packing all my stuff to leave the place where everyone I love is and used to be, and listening to this song as I do so.

    Sunday, Jan. 2: Hockey - Song Away - How ironic would it be if you played this song at 11:59 p.m.? Oh wait...

    Monday, Jan. 3: Athlete - Superhuman Touch - Smooth indie rock, put me to sleep while I try to block out all this incessant noise.

    Tuesday, Jan. 4: Explosions in the Sky - So Long, Lonesome - I'm going to have to agree with those who say song titles don't matter. …
