A decade in the rearview, 2011 has revealed itself to be a very interesting year for indie rock. There are several albums that were considered to be very important in the moment, but have, in the years since, faded from the spotlight to become not much more than asterisks. Remember Whokill? How about the first and only Wild Flag LP?

That said, there are still some albums that stand the test of time today: self-titled efforts from Bon Iver and Joyce Manor, Real Estate’s Days, M83’s Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming. In this episode of Indiecast, Steven and Ian are reflecting on the first year of the 2010’s to determine which albums still have that staying power.

In this week’s Recommendation Corner, Ian is vibing with Green To Gold, the latest album from 2010’s stalwarts The Antlers. Steven, on the other hand, is plugging his new retrospective on Stone Temple Pilots’ Tiny Music. Check that out here.
