Our favorite music of 2011

It’s that time of the year again, when every website and person on the planet makes a list of their favorite things, and we’re no exception. Here’s a sampling of what we loved in 2011.

As a reminder, Holiday Bundles are now live at our webstore! Give the gift of Team Love music this holiday season. Bundles are a great way to introduce friends or family to the music you love without breaking the bank. And, to get you in the holiday spirit, we have A Weather’s annual Christmas song! Check out the band’s beautiful rendition of “I’ll Be Home for Christmas”.
