Autodestruct Playlist - Best of 2011

As 2011's turntable lid slams shut, I'd like to extend a special thanks to those caring individuals who brought exceptional music into my life this year.  Most notably...

* Daniel Chavez -- You're Blizzard's trump card, and they don't even know it.  Not surprisingly, your artwork is as experimental, sophisticated and far-reaching as your taste in music. You tipped me off to so much great shit this year. You and Stacy are a joy to hang out and draw with.

+ Nathan Andrew Bissett -- You're my West Coast doppelganger! You do concept art, have awesome taste in music and women, and sport a shaved head! We have the same middle name! So nice meeting you and Beata this year.

# Headphone Commute // What can I say? You're my constant, my curator. Musically, we grew up together. I suspect we'll grow old together in the same way.  Everlasting!

Daniel C has really great taste in music. He turned me onto Jaga Jazzist and have been hooked. I hope you have a wonderful New Year! cheers!

Speaking of Jaga Jazzist, there was a new album by Loka (also on Ninja Tune) this year called "Passing Place." It's comparable in sound. Jazz/psychedelic. I liked it, but not enough to add it to my list. Start with their earlier album "Fire Shepards."
