Instead of focusing on a best of list, I wanted to highlight 10 albums released in 2011, by artists that aren’t household names. There are so many hard working and passionate artists who deserve to be noticed. The current landscape of the music industry makes it difficult for artist from local and regional scenes to break through. The blogosphere provides a conduit for these artists to be heard, but most bloggers, like those of us here at Twangville, have day jobs and can’t listen to everything that is submitted to us. However, we try to listen to as much as possible.Listed below are 10 under the radar albums that caught my ear in 2011:
Between the Moon and Morning Light
of the Wheel
Humadors – The
Excitement of Maybe
