2011 in downloads December 18, 2011

Posted by sjroby in Music.

This is not a complete list, but probably reasonably close, except where singles are concerned. There are literally dozens of dubstep and electronic singles not listed for reasons of sanity. The albums and notable EPs below are from eMusic, iTunes, artists’ websites, etc. James Leyland Kirby started a subscription service that allowed fans to subsidize him up front for releases over the year, which has been a great deal. Meanwhile, other artists like The Weeknd released what are essentially full albums as free online mixtapes. And I haven’t canceled my monthly eMusic subscription yet, which is why there are so many things on this list I haven’t properly listened to yet — if you don’t use your quota of monthly downloads, you lose them, plain and simple.

Comments on some of these to come later.
