Just 20 songs that I like from 2011. Click to Stream.
1. Deer Tick – “Main Street”
I first saw John McCauley at the Loveless Cafe in Franklin, TN and

2. Harrison Hudson – “Cherish The One You Got”
This is like a newfangled edition of “Love The One You’re With” mixed with a little bit of that Eels song that was in Roadtrip. Quite possibly the best pop album of the year, there’s such an honest sentiment in his lyrics and voice, his sincerity makes you want the good guys to win all the time.
3. The Features – “How It Starts”
This is my favorite band to see at The Earl in Atlanta. That’s where
they usually play if they are on their own. They are one of the best
live bands around the southeast, and this is my favorite track off
their latest release.
