Best Music of 2011 (Part 3)

In a change to our usual programming, we're taking another listen to some of the best music of last year.

Over summer the Music 101 team gathered to discuss some of their favourite music from 2011. Today Trevor Reekie, Emma Smith, Nick Atkinson and host Kirsten Johnstone share their choices for 'best new discovery' and 'best new release from an established artist'.

Check out Music 101's Favourite Musical Moments of 2011.
