Based on the most played songs list you might’ve guessed that my favorite album this year is [Worn Thin, by Weep][worn]. Honorable mention goes to the [Zola Jesus EP, Stridulum][zola]. Based on the most played artists list you might’ve guessed that I didn’t have much time for new music this year. I’m convinced that needs to change in 2011. There is nothing sadder than a man with almost no favorite bands who haven’t broken up or descended into self-parody.

[worn]: “Worn Thin, by Weep”
[zola]: “Stridulum by Zola Jesus”
