The year’s end approaches and thus the compulsion to mention best-of’s. I’d like to title this Best of 2011, but I really can’t since Resonance began mid-year in June. So I’ll say Best Rated Resonance releases. Out of nearly thirty EPs and albums reviewed these five received perfect scores. Follow above link for album descriptions and review links.
Her Vanished Grace: ‘See the Moon— Dreampop Luminescence
Rival Sons: ‘Pressure & Time' — Raw Soul Revival
Sound of Cancer: ‘No Vampires in Gilroy' — hauntingly beautiful groove
Today The Moon Tomorrow The Sun: ‘Wildfire’ — electro-fuzz rock
Voletta: ‘Soft Focus'— industrial shoegaze rock
