New York Magazine’s Top Ten Albums Of 2011

    New York Magazine has jumped in on the listmaking party that’s been happening around the net (peep ours next week!), naming their top ten albums of 2011. Their list has some picks that have been everywhere (Destroyer, PJ Harvey, Tune-Yards), mixed in with some more left field choices (Colin Stetson, Shabazz Palaces, Nicolas Jaar). Nice shoutout to Kendrick Lamar, and that number one pick of Austra is pretty bold. Here’s the list:

    10 Nicolas Jaar: Space Is Only Noise
    09 Gang Gang Dance: Eye Contact
    08 Kendrick Lamar: Section.80
