2011 in review

January 1, 2012

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,000 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 17 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

The countdown has just begun! Go to http://pitchfork.com/ for the annual roundup. Listen to The Top 100 Tracks today and tomorrow, check out The Albums, Honorable Mention on Wednesday, and finally The Top 50 Albums the following days. I knew the best songs #100-51 would be fuckin awesome and it’s just the beginning!

Before releasing the new, much anticipated album number 6, Goldfrapp will gather their more (A&E, Ooh La La) or less popular (Train, Utopia) singles on a retrospective LP called… The Singles. There are two new songs included. Read the full tracklist and watch the album cover at Pitchfork:
