Duncan Clark Poop ’11

  Buy New or Used via amazon 1. THE DECEMBERISTS – The King Is Dead – No themes. No prog rock. Just simple literate direct songs by a band that is hitting its peak. Even watching them in concert in a drenching rain did not dampen my enthusiasm for either the band or the album.   Buy New or Used via amazon 2. BLACK JOE LEWIS & THE HONEYBEARS – Scandalous – We knew from the first disc that this was a…

2011: ANOTHER YEAR, ANOTHER LIST WITH GODDAMN VIDEO GAMES ON IT This entire year I worked a shift from 11pm to 7am Mon-Fri, and therefore found myself catching up on sleep during almost all available free time. Still, I did listen to at least 10 things, see 10 movies, and play 10 video games (barely). Thanks to everyone for such amazing lists, and here’s to mass culture continuing to produce material after December 2012! ALBUMS:   Buy New or USed via…


Jim Finnigan Poop ’11

Occupy PoOP 2011 Wherein we lowly and scruffy protesters get to choose the top 1%! Well, it was not the most exciting year for recorded music, but there certainly was a lot of it! Some rays of hope will soon shine on the masses with the appointment of our newest beloved leader! My On-U year: There were no Bonzos or Kraftwerk this year, so the masses stood crying in the streets, in orderly rows in front of their apartment houses…

Matt Nerney Poop ’11

Well, I spent most of the year meandering down memory lane, listening to old favorites, in an attempt to brainwash my children into becoming a bit more like dear old dad. I get a real kick out of hearing my kids sing along, words seared into memory, to songs I know they’ll never hear on the radio, or pretty much anywhere else for that matter. All right, you might hear “Clash City Rockers” on the airwaves, but “Tennessee Jed” or…


Dan Wilmer Poop ’11

  Buy New or Used via amazon 1. The Black Keys – El Camino Is there any working band in as much of a groove as the Black Keys? “Lonely Boy” and “Gold on the Ceiling” may be my two favorite songs they’ve ever written. The album is full of fast-paced fun that mixes it up from the more blues-y approach of the rest of their catalog.   Buy New or Used via amazon 2. Wilco – The Whole Love I like…



Irv Rosen Poop ’11

What I listened to in 2011 Greetings from Florida, not exactly the center of the musical universe but….   Buy New or Used via amazon Nick Lowe – The Old Magic Not only did he know the bride when she used to rock and roll, but he knew her when she grew old. Gracefully. Intelligently. Quietly. Nick is simply the best songwriter and an engaging performer.   Buy New or Used via amazon Dave Alvin – Eleven Eleven Had grown tired of…


Jamie Hosley Poop ’11

  Buy New or Used via amazon 1. The Cave Singers: No Witch – My favorite album of the year. Nice mix of styles that bring a dark groove to their folk roots.   Buy New or Used via amazon 2. The Vaccines: What Did you Expect from The Vaccines – Sun, fun and catchy tunes, that’s what I expect from The Vaccines and this albums delivers.   Buy New or Used via amazon 3. The War on Drugs: Slave Ambient – Lyrically…
