Best Music of 2011: #5

On the WaterTodd: Future Islands, On the Water

I love when you find a record that you have zero expectation for and discover something special. Listeners just need to get past the Yoda-esque vocals on the first track. “Balance” is an example of what is great about this album.

 

Looping State of MindChris: The Field, Looping State of Mind

Entrancing music. Hypnotic enough for meditation, powerful enough to get one through a cardio workout, varied enough to be fully entertaining. “Is This Power” kicks off the album in style.
