Friends, I can’t help it – if one of my favorite musicians puts out a limited edition or otherwise rare piece of music, I am compelled to buy it. Yes, sometimes those special releases are beyond personal affordability, but when Beady Eye released their single “The Roller” as a numbered 7″, I had to own it.
2011 became the year when so many of my favorites decided to have new releases, and it became a very happy listening time. In some ways, it’s difficult to say which song from the following fifteen is my favorite, but once you reach the end, it will be obvious to anyone who has followed my music writing. Still, play all these songs and enjoy. I hope you love them.
