My top ten favorite songs of 2011

(excluding songs by artists that will appear on my favorite albums list)

10. Rangers - "Zombies (day)" - Ariel would be proud.

9. Oneohtrix Point Never - "Replica" - Taking ambien to make music to take ambien to.

8. Toro y Moi - "I can Get Love" - Just ride the wave, brah.

7. Gang Gang Dance - "Glass Jar" - I was going to drop a Loveless reference, but you just don't do that.

6. Cold Cave - "Underworld USA" - A deeply excitable song off a pretty mediocre album.

5. Julia Holter - "Try to Make Yourself a Work of Art" A good example of "l'art comme philosophie," like that one French guy talked about.

4. Girls - "Vomit" - Do not be confused. This is actually a b-side to the unreleased single of Pink Floyd's "Us and Them"

3. Twin Sister - "Stop" - Easy on the ears? I think so.

2. Cass McCombs - "County Line" - Made the second spot on "songs I would like to get drunk and slow dance to on a lake shore under a full moon," just under Neil Young's "Harvest Moon"

1. Puro Instinct - "Lost at Sea" - Cocteau Twins + Felt + Los Angeles aesthetic = bonafied 2011 heavenly pop hit.


Comet Gain - "Clang of the Concrete Swans" - Youthful and vivacious as ever
