2011 - the year of the rock
It's tough to get back to work on this first Monday of the new year. The prospect of another year of the daily grind is daunting, but I'm here to tell you that it doesn't have to be. No -- there are plenty of things to look forward to in 2011, fresh new music being chief among them. 

New album releases don't really get going until next week, but there are still plenty of January/February releases generating a lot of buzz. Here now are ten songs from those releases -- one being from an already-released album -- complete with embedded Soundcloud versions for your listening pleasure.
