Middle Ones in the morning & Help Stamp Out Loneliness in the evening!
Amor de Días: Street of the Love Days is great too, I'm still in love with Tennis: Cape Dory and of course Let's Whisper: Shortest Days is lovely aswell. That's my "top 5" right now.

The Middle Ones
Help Stamp Out Loneliness
Sarandon
Slow Down Tallahassee
The Lovely Eggs
The Babies
Davila 666

Others I need to hear more but are promising after a few listens:

Vivian Girls
Crystal Stilts

I think my favourite so far is the Crystal Stilts album, although I haven't got as many new albums this year compared to the last few years.

I'd say Help Stamp Out Loneliness, there are too many songs I love here.
The Andersen Tapes and Zoey Van Goey are good too.

I still haven't got the Zoey Van Goey album, to my shame. How does it compare to the first album?

I think it's better. It's a stronger set of songs and a nice mix of different sorts of songs actually.

More people need to hear the recent Slow Down Tallahassee album. It's glorious!

In fact I shouldn't have answered as there are far too many albums I didn't listened to yet.

So far, La Sera.

Although the Keep It That Way EP by Andrew Vincent I like more.

I think the only 2011 indiepop album I have is the Bearsuit one.

It's chuffing marvelous.

these, the andersen tapes, cosmonauts lp's and I'm very keen to hear the let's whisper, davila 666 and middle ones lp's... and how

the comet gain lp has been my most favourite, apologies to them that have yet to hear it, I love it though, every song has got right under my skin and into my brain/heart/what have you

there's a ton of records I've yet to hear (looking forward to investigating a lot of the stuff being mentioned in this thread I'm entirely ignorant of), there's still a load of records from last year that won't go away (good)

carn't wait to hear the gold-bears long player and hoping they'll be a sea lions album some time soon as well
