Spin’s recently released their top 50 albums of the year, which I know you will not agree with for the most part. I feel it is a fair assessment of all ranges of music, though there were some left out, which I have included on the bottom of the list. Here are the most notable from the list in my opinion which I suggest you check out as I think there are albums you may have not listened to but may enjoy dear brother:
50. Your girl: Britney Spears, Femme Fatale
47. Gillian Welch, The Harrow and the Harvest
40. Jay-Z and Kanye West, Watch the Throne (not your thing I know…but it was a good album)
39. Beyoncé, 4
14. Bon Iver, Bon Iver
13 The Weeknd, House of Balloons/Thursday
-The Head and The Heart, The Head and The Heart
-Thao with The Get Down Stay Down,
-Peter, Bjorn and John, Gimme Some
-Raphael Saadiq, Stone Rollin’
**AND even though it was released in 2010 she has made a surged with her recent hits ‘Call Your Girlfriend’ and 'Dancing on my Own’ which leads me to suggest everyone to revisit Robyn’s Body Talk .
Side note: For your enjoyment, Britney’s song Till the World Ends did make #13 out of 20 on Spin’s top songs of 2011.
This was very difficult to get hold of. But This is a band called Tribes, tipped by many to be the next big thing of 2011. They are a 4 piece from Camden Town. They don’t have any releases yet but watch this space. This is a song called Nightdriving and is available to download here http://ymlp.com/xgeqhyyygmgj or you can check them out on there myspace: http://www.myspace.com/tribesband
