As a myriad other local music critics have noted, it's been exceptionally tough to compile any sort of meaningful year-end-list that doesn't exclude any of the exceptionally good new music we've heard this year.  This is a tiny list of favorites.  It's by no means exlcusive.  Keep on killin' it, MSP and beyond.
