After a long weekend I’m back with the first half of my last 2011 wrap-up: Music. I dilly dallied on this one because I knew it would be tough. I’m much more up-to-date with music (mostly) but I listen to so damn much of it that I knew just figuring out what I listened to in 2011 would be a chore. As before, the contents of this list aren’t necessarily the music that came out in 2011, but the music I first heard and listened to in 2011. And as always, what follows is simply what I like, for whatever reason. Artistic merit or no.
