The Best 50 Albums of 2011

Quit Mumbling's Best Albums of 2011

The best albums are much more than a collection of stand out songs. Like anything successful, a great album finds multiple parts coming together as one; accomplishing moods, textures, and developments not possible by any one singular piece. The best albums force you to take a step back, to not only look at each moment […]

The Staff Picks of 2011

You should have seen the deliberation room after we finished the lists.  Papers scattered across the floor, blood and coffee stains on the carpet, I think at one point Kenny threw his laptop at Stuart (it just barely missed).  But it makes sense, because each one of us are so passionate about the music we […]

QMtv // PAPA

PAPA crept up on us like the best kind of addiction.  Upon first listen it’s easy to become infatuated with their breezy  hook-laden sunshine pop, but listen closer and you can tell there is much more to this batch of tunes.  Each song is perfectly crafted with intricate guitar lines, held down by a steady […]

Since the thought process became a big enough head ache, we seriously considered throwing nearly every song and artist covered for thirty days into a two part mix series. It almost happened, but since we strive to only curate the best […]

Girls – “Vomit”

“Vomit” off the upcoming Girls’ LP Father, Son, Holy Ghost is the moment post-breakup when you move from depression to insanity. It is staying up all hours of the night, pacing around the house with a fifth of booze, and cleaning up broken glass after throwing all forms of kitchenware against the wall. The track […]

Girls – Lysandre

Girls have always seem to be experts when it comes to relationships.  Whether telling the story from their own perspective, or that of a teenage girl, the band has seemed to master angst without being too angsty.  While you always see the band talk about relationships, it rarely feels like they are analyzing any relationship […]

Girls – “Thee Oh So Protective One”

From an artists perspective, you would think that following Album would be a daunting task.  As quickly as Girls rose to indie sweethearts, they could have come crashing down in half the time with a less than stellar follow up.  But it is clear what the band’s strengths are.  Album wasn’t a collection of songs […]
