two in review: may/june 2011

one year ago, i began a new blog series, of sorts, in which i compiled a mix of the best music i had discovered in the preceding two months. the series and mixes are called, two in review. read the original post for details of why i started this.

feel free to go back and check out past editions:

1. may/june 2010

2. july/august 2010

3. september/october 2010

3. november/december 2010

4. january/february 2011

5. march/april 2011

another couple months have passed by, so it’s time to once again bring you two in review. as usual, there was a ton of great music that didn’t make the cut due to my 20-track limitation. but with that comes a really strong list. i think i’ve said this every month, but this might be the best two in review to date.
