Best of 2011!

best of 2011 albums

We’ve had another exciting year here at Vertical House Records! Thanks to all of our friends and family for the love and support. We adore all of the audiophile Huntsvillians who we’ve met this past year…and of course all of our regulars. We are looking forward to 2012, as we will be expanding (yet again wahoo!) into a space double the size we have now. We will still be located on the Lowe Mill property, but in one of the “railroad car” rooms. Once we’ve moved in we’ll share a map so you’ll be able to locate us easily! Now let’s get to the music…

Here is our Best of 2011 list! We’d love to hear what your favorites are if you want to share in the comments. Happy New Year!!
