Julyssa’s Music Highlights of 2011

8. Jamie Woon – Mirrorwriting

To me, this year’s real surprise. I found Jamie Woon from pure coincidence. I was checking which acts were playing in Stockholm and his name popped up. I went to listen to him and I adored his album.

I wasn’t able to see him live, but I am not too sad. I know I will be able to see him soon. For now, I will relax as I listen to his album. The combination of his voice and the soft melodies? I am a goner.

Listen to the album on Xiami. Get the album as MP3s on Amazon.

7. James Morrison – The Awakening

The interview that never happened. Forever butthurt over the matter, but c’est la vie.

James Morrison is one of the artists I really love. There’s something about his voice, his music. I am a goner. This album was a true gem, from beginning to end I adore every single track.

Listen to the album on Xiami. Get the album as a CD or as MP3s on Amazon.


Music is all I do: I work in music, I write about music, I listen to music.

    Damn, the only song I can recognize is the 2NE1 one, and that’s only because I have a friend who is a fan of the group (and keeps dancing this particular song all the freaking time).

    I am confused. You put Republic of 2PM on the list, say it’s good and sexy and all that….but then you say that “their first Japanese album didn’t cut it for this list”……what? Republic of 2PM IS their first Japanese album and it looks like it’s on the list so this is really confusing. Are you sure that you didn’t just want to mention I’m Your Man, their second single?

      @Dani, It’s not on the list. The list contains 10 entries. I added 2PM as an honorable mention. Cus as much as I love the album, well to me it wasn’t good enough to make my list.

      I am just being biased and using it as an excuse to again share that overly sexy 2PM mv….

    Can’t believe I missed Nicolas solo! She was my fav member too (mostly based on looks actually).
