Pitchfork Overlooked Records 2011

Are you sure you've listened to all the worthy records of the first half of 2011?
Pitchfork is testing you with a list of 20 albums:

"As we move onto the second half of 2011, we'd like to take a moment to step back and highlight some the year's worthy records that you might have missed on the first go-around. So what exactly do we mean by "overlooked" here? It's mostly a feeling. Some of these records have been celebrated in their sphere but didn't really cross over. Some received a low-key release. Some are cherished by one or two of our contributors but haven't been listened to by many of the others. And some are just excellent records that deserve more than to be lost amidst the endless deluge of new music."

I made the usual Spotify double bill: a big playlist with full albums and a little one with three tracks each album. Enjoy!
