Had a lot on this year and didn't quite get the usual amount of time to discovering new music, which was disappointing… but a large handful of my most played artists on last.fm released albums in 2011 which kept me satiated, then i tried to cram a whole gang of albums onto my listen playlist for december, which resulted in some pleasant finds.
