Turntable Kitchen :: April 2011 Mix

2011 has been a surprisingly good year for music fans so far.  We’ve already had a great new Radiohead album and an album by Fleet Foxes that is arguably a masterpiece.  The Weeknd came out of nowhere and gave us a free downloadable mixtape that I suspect will grace many Top Albums of 2011 list come year end.  Albums by Mirah & Thao, James Blake, tUnE-yArDs, The Motel Beds, Steffaloo, and Loch Lomond have been delightful surprises.  And to top it all off we’ve received great EPs by We Are Trees, Rockie Fresh, Typhoon and Work Drugs. So yeah, it’s been a damn good year so far, and we are only a quarter of the way through.  I’ve included many of those artists on this mixtape and/or the March mixtape (in fact Steffaloo appears twice and her photography has been selected as the album art) in addition to a whole host of other great finds that I’ve stumbled upon this year.  For a fun drinking game – try taking a shot every time someone says “gangsta” while listening to this mix.  You’ll never make it through “We Can’t All Be Hipsters” with anything resembling sobriety.

Side note: TK has been nominated for “Best Independent Music Blog” for the MTV O Music Awards!  We are extremely humbled just to be nominated.  The rules allow you to vote once a day via Facebook, then 10 times a day via their site, and 10 times a day through Twitter (it’ll auto tweet that you voted for us the first time you do it – but not after that).  If you like what we do – please take a few seconds to vote.  You don’t have to vote for us all 21 times (though we’d be eternally grateful if you did): http://omusicawards.com/vote/best-independent-music-blog/
