Didn’t listen to any old music at all this year! Seriously. Like nothing from before ’06 even! Big mix of hip-hop and indie pop. Pitchfork hipster type shit really. I think Triangle records’ stuff replaced dubstep this year. Fave track of the year even though it came out in 2011 was Crystalfilm by Little Dragon.
