My Top Bands of 2011!
This has been an interesting year in music for me. I feel like my tastes have shifted and broadened a bit, what with listening to a lot more dubstep (thanks Skrillex) and the occasional Taylor Swift. Emarosa, my top band of 2010, didn’t even make the top 10 this year….partly because they kicked out lead singer Jonny Craig, who rejoined Dance Gavin Dance this year. DGD was my top band of 2011! Their album, Downtown Battle Mountain II, was amazing and I still love to listen to it all the way through on repeat. The most interesting band of 2011 for me, was actually my #2 most listened to band….Sleeping with Sirens. What makes this interesting was that all of those 640+ listens happened over the last 6 weeks of 2011! I love their two albums and am excited to see what they put out this next year. I’m also glad to see Bowling for Soup stayed in my Top 10 this year, since I loved their new album, and since Jaret ribbed me a bit for not even making Top 20 last year!
