Top Records of 2011

LPs
1. Restorations - s/t - This was the soundtrack to my year. I'd love this record even if I didn't love these dudes.
2. Into It. Over It. - Proper - It's great to see Evan finally put together a proper LP.
3. Title Fight - Shed - This band has blown up and totally deserves it.
4. Touche Amore - Parting the Sea Between Brightness and Me - I sort of wrote this band off, but when I finally got around to listening to it, this is an absolutely killer record. The only hardcore record I really cared about this year.
5. Balance & Composure - Separation - Huge guitars, and kind of a 90s alternative feel, but still poppy at times. I like each record more and more.
6. Spraynard - Funtitled - There was a stretch where I listened to this daily. Good positive poppy punk.
7. Man Overboard - s/t - So poppy it's almost a guilty pleasure. I love it. And Justin.
8. Bridge and Tunnel - Rebuilding Year - The heavy parts are heavier, and the pretty parts are prettier. Their LPs both have flawless opening tracks.
9. The Wonder Years - Suburbia... - Different than The Upsides, but still has everything I love about them.
10. Basement - I Wish I Could Stay Here - At times I forget about this record, but whenever I listen to it, it's stuck in my head for days and I can't stop listening.
11. Good Luck - Without Hesitation - I can't get enough of this band.

EPs
Dikembe - Chicago Bowls - My latest obsession.
Forming - EP - This would be great on a 90s college radio station.
Luther - Siblings and Sevens - Kinda like Hot Rod Circuit, but less polished.
Armalite - Humungous - They're back! Finally!
CSTVT - s/t - The only bad thing about this is that it's only two songs.


New Year's Resolution: Post more records in 2012. Stop being lazy with the blog. To start I'll be posting some old songs/records by the bands above (if this isn't their first release).

  3. Thanks for posting this information. @SEO Harvester. You could just go to certain restaurants and see if they have old equipment. Pizza equipment is not that difficult to come by.

  5. Hi, I've been checking back on your page sporadically through 2012. I found a couple albums in your "Best of 2011" that I really liked a lot. I found out about Spraynard and they're awesome even if they did break up. Into it. Over it. has a good sound. And Toche Amore is always good for a hardcore rock out. Anyway, I hope that you post your favorite records of 2012 if you have any. I'd be curious to explore the list. Thanks.
