Sasha’s Favourite Albums of 2011- ENTIRE LIST

#1 – Jay Z & Kanye West – Watch the Throne

I’m sure this one came a shocker (…not).  Even though a bunch of the songs act as advertisements, the quality of this album is hard to match, and it was an easy pick as favourite of the year.  You would have to be living under a rock to not have heard at least one of Watch the Throne’s singles/songs, and you would have to be hit by that rock upside the head to not enjoy it… And on that note I hope everyone has a great New Years Eve, I’d be willing to bet you will be hearing this song at least once (or 3 times like their encores on this tour).  Enjoy!

Sasha’s Favourite Albums of 2011 Countdown: #4

#4 – Caveman – CoCo Beware

I posted about Caveman back in May after their mushy love song December 28th hooked me (really sweet song – check it out). Then I got their album and it did not disappoint, now I would say that CoCo Beware is a must have for all indie music lovers.  It’s one of those debut albums that makes me feel like this could turn into a longterm fan-ship. I’ll have to wait and see but they will be playing the Horseshoe January 11th and tickets are ONLY $10.00!  So get on that, and see one of my favourite new bands of 2011.

Here is a pretty song for a pretty day.  It comes to you via Brooklyn band Caveman.  I’ve only heard a handful of tracks from this band but I’m really liking all of them, especially December 28th.  I’m a sucker for a mushy love song so when Matthew Iwanusa  sings: ‘this won’t go away. I know, it’s true our love is here to stay’. I melt.  I wish I knew the story behind the song but I’ll just have to wait until they blow up and film a VH1 Behind the Music special.

December 28th – Caveman

Caveman is on tour with Here We Go Magic in the U.S. right now but fingers crossed they will make it to Toronto sometime soon (AroarA is supporting Here We Go Magic at the Horseshoe on the 11th).
