captains dead's best of the rest for 2011

Posted by gregor on Sunday, December 11th, 2011

after taking some time to listen to about 20-30 records over the past 2/3 days, i decided that there was still a bunch of great stuff that i didnt mention in my top 14.5 of the year. so, i came up with another 11 records that i think are more than deserving of more attention. i could have actually come up with another ten but felt that a solid 25.5 records was good enough. although, i may get bored an post the other ten records, but i doubt it. one thing that continues to sadden me is that lack of wilco on my lists seemingly the past 5 years… oh well. maybe next year or the year after?
