Ohmpark’s Top 40 Songs of 2011

Now that this blog only covers local music, I decided that all of my year-end lists this year will be Atlanta music specific. There’s plenty of sites that do national/international lists anyway. So then, this is my 40 favourite songs of the year by artists affiliated with Atlanta. I spent a lot of time with each of these songs, and if you are unfamiliar with any of them, I strongly suggest you click on the song titles below to give them a listen.

    Guess you didn’t like Arabia Mountain.

    I actually think Arabia Mountain is a pretty good record, much better than their last two albums. But it’s not really my taste. I prefer music that tries to do something a little more original, and I didn’t like any of the songs on it as much as I liked these 40.
