FILTER’s Top 10 of 2011: Ra Ra Riot

Ra Ra Riot have been hard at work. In August 2010, the six-piece put out their sophomore record, The Orchard, and it feels as if they have been touring behind it ever since. Note to mention, this summer saw the release of bassist Mathieu Santos’ first solo effort, Massachusetts 2010. While the group had to cancel some tour dates due to illness, they have already rescheduled and began making it up to the fans who missed out on their singular songs. As they take a well-deserved break, the band gives us their top 10 albums of 2011, including the soulful stylings of Adele and Beyoncé.
