2011 was a good year for music for me. I don’t think I’ve experienced this much musical growth in years, and it was thanks in large part to everyone I reached out to with my musical cry for help nearly a year ago. Another boon to my music-listening repertoire was the availability of Spotify, a free music streaming service opened to American listeners for the first time this year.
What this produced was a line-up of highly recommended music from trustworthy friends and a huge library of penalty- and cost-free music to sample from any computer with power. These two forces combined to bring you: (2011) The Best of Last Year.
