Sounds from the Cornerstone: Episode 1 - Best of 2011

Welcome to Episode 1 of the Sounds from the Cornerstone podcast! For this opening episode I decided to run through my Best of 2011 – one song from each of the 12 albums I had ranked on my Best of 2011 blog post. Here is the track listing with links to each band's music. (Note: song titles link to YouTube videos [of either album versions or particularly awesome live versions] or other streams of the songs, band names link to official band websites or most prominent social network page, and album titles link to online stores where you can buy the album in either high-quality lossless or CD format.)

"The Attic" – In Flames (Sounds of a Playground Fading)

"Töck's Taunt - Loke's Treachery Part II" – Amon Amarth (Surtur Rising)

"Reunion" – M83 (Hurry Up, We're Dreaming)

"A Year Afloat" – Steve Lawson (11 Reasons Why 3 Is Greater Than Everything Else)

"Rushden Fair" – Matt Stevens (Relic)

"10x10" – The Fierce and The Dead (If It Carries On Like This We're Moving to Morecambe)
