AwkwardSound Presents: The Best Music Videos of 2011

One small tweak AwkwardSound made this year in its coverage of first listens, song reviews and reviews has been its Audio / Visual section. Granted more videos are debuted by AS' favorite artists on a weekly basis than one can keep up with, AwkwardSound did its best to bring you the newest highlights in video-making mastery from today's ever-growing list of ingeniously creative directors. Among some of the more popular videography trends this year included making the absolute most out of a single take, glistening up the lens and the completion of the desensitization process regarding the term "NSFW" next to a song title. To see what I mean, here's AwkwardSound's list of the Best Music Videos of 2011 (in no particular order other than alphabetical...)
