what I enjoyed from the music of 2011:
♫ Farewell Poetry: Hoping for the Invisible to Ignite
this one here is a diamond for me.. Jayne Amara Ross' beautiful spoken word + slow, mesmerasing ambient/post-rock soundscapes = real stunner!
♫ Regina: Soita Mulle
Regina came back and they had changed.. nice, hip, fit-to-club electropop turned into mellow dream pop and I simply adore it.. Iisa's voice just melts me <3 best Finnish album of 2011 with no doubts!
♫ Christina Rosenvinge: La Joven Dolores
simple and always so good 90s-ish lo-fi rock sonorities, Christina's sexy, soothing voice, español.. mmm
♫ Russian Red: Fuerteventura
at last Lourdes came up with new album.. her smooth, cute, fragile and by all means adorable folk ballads really gets me.. a definite daydreaming album..
♫ Sóley: We Sink
really good debut from Icelandic Sóley Stefánsdóttir.. simple, minimalistic piano songs, her voice and the accent.. just hooks me..
