Top 50 Albums of 2011 25-21

We all love lists, and we all love sarcasm. Though, I think its important to reflect upon the last year of music, I’m going to do so through the use of a list. It was a fantastic year full of awesome albums, and I’m going to count down a bunch of my favorites, and give you something to listen to while reading. 25. City & Colour – Little Hell City and Colour – Fragile Bird Dallas Green’s highly praised solo project City & Colour put out their 3rd album, a lyrically moody & morose album about pulling through all of…

White Denim – D White Denim – Anvil Everything The bluesy, garage-rock trio White Denim created a psych-rock abstract album that was a bit avant-garde and a bit influence driven. To be redundant, they create a sound…

Floating Action – Desert Etiquette Floating Action – Rincon The dusty, jangly Desert Etiquette is Floating Action’s second release. The album has a great old feeling, its style is rather distinguishably indistinguishable, with elements of many styles,…

Review | Kurt von Stetten – Cyclops

Kurt von Stetten – Codify Finishing his umpteenth album, multi-instrumentalist, bmx dude, and all around fantastic guy… Kurt von Stetten released Cyclops, the follow up to one of my favorite albums from last year Pyramid.  It’s interesting to see the change album to album, and there is certainly one here.  The do it yourself album does not come easy to many.  To say that Kurt is one of my favorite Boston dudes would be downplaying it, and to say that I’m motivated to write lots of great things about him well he’s earned it. What makes Cyclops stand out is…

Review | City and Colour at House of Blues

City and Colour – Fragile Bird Dallas Greene and his band City and Colour played to a sold-out crowd at the House of Blues on Lansdowne street Friday night. The fivesome walked on stage, lights dimmed and immediately started it off with We Found Each Other In The Dark, the opening track off City and Colour’s most recent album, Little Hell. Right from the start the sound was much fuller and overall, beyond anything that is conveyed on the studio recording. Dallas, who stood in a dark shirt, suspenders and bow tie, shared harmonies with his bassist. And not only…
