Paste Magazine – 50 Best Albums & 50 Best Songs of 2011

30 Nov

First and foremost, this stuff is hard. The amount of music that is released each year and narrowing it down to 50 is damn tough but I have to give Josh Johnson at PASTE Magazine much credit for his solid lists of 50 Best Albums and 50 Best Songs of 2011.  There are definitely more than less bands/artists on his lists I have been jamming out to heavily over the past year.  Again, I love this list, tons of great music but a couple names I didn’t see that personally I think should have been included, GROUPLOVE, Girls, Justice, Allen Stone, SuperHeavy, NewVillager and Boy & Bear to name a few. What’s missing that you fell in love with over the last year?

It’s definitely a big Roots music week for me after getting the chance to walk them down the red carpet at Miss Universe on Monday and now I must give mad props to Paste Magazine for putting together an outstanding piece, “The Roots’ 10 Best Moments on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.”  Heck The Roots are the reason why I started watching the show and now I’m also a fan of Jimmy Fallon.  Do yourself a favor and click here to read the item and check out the videos.

Also if you can find it, DJ Heat had put together a mix CD titled Late Night with The Roots which took some of the best performances to date from the show.  A must have which includes performances by The Roots with the Beastie Boys, Mos Def, Ludacris, Wale, Black Star, Public Enemy, 50 Cent and more.

And don’t forget to pick up The Roots’ new album How I Got Over and on September 21 John Legend & The Roots drop Wake Up!
