    Nice, I always like looking at your lists to see what I missed this year. Out of Love by Mister Heavenly is my favorite album of the year. Nick Thorburn’s solo album is great too if you haven’t checked it out, pay what you want on his bandcamp site. The new Jicks album is up there too. Stick Figures In Love is the jam. I’m excited about the new Plants & Animals and Islands songs that have come out in the last month… looking forward to those albums in 2012! Oh, Diaper Island is great…not sure why the critics didn’t love it as much. Honerable mentions, 20 Odd Years (Buck 65), Transistor Sistor (Shotgun Jimmie) and Life Fantastic (Man Man). Happy New Year!
