Dry the River - Shallow Bed - http://open.spotify.com/album/5W2DS7HGauXOJIr0Nmu8D4
Probably the best band I discovered in 2011, Dry The River comes up big with a great debut full length. Look for these Brits around the States as they seem to love touring over here.

Mumford & Sons - Babel - http://open.spotify.com/album/7uDfZSbrd80ylz1EgGr4Rv
Love the first record, loved this. Still can't get "I Will Wait" out of my head.

First Aid Kit - The Lion's Roar - http://open.spotify.com/album/5rHbupWcQFRPNzYBLiisMB
Got hooked on this band after hearing "Emmylou" in a coffeeshop. It felt like a brick across my face saying "THIS IS A DAMN GOOD SONG! LISTEN TO IT!"

Atl-J - An Awesome Wave - http://open.spotify.com/album/6l64edgsBjrwMUppqycWKi
A buddy of mine sent me this record and said to check it out. Took me a few plays before it hit me, but dang it's good.

Glen Hansard - Rhythm & Repose - http://open.spotify.com/album/51QFmzBXGScogQ4vyDiIA2
Been following Hansard since his days in The Frames. The guys has one of the best voices in music for conveying emotion and heart. His Oscar nod from Once was obvious in hindsight.

Godspeed You! Black Emperor -'Allelujah! Don't Bend Ascend! - http://open.spotify.com/album/30bTXMxsMsYn7QbwmDW3rj
The almighty Godspeed is back, and they still are kicking ass.

Alabama Shakes - Boys & Girls - http://open.spotify.com/album/08ganBQBnRuCWcpkAwZ4IS
Something new and something old married into a soulful record that just makes you happy from the first riff of "Hold On".
