Best Music of 2012

I love music but I never write about it. There are people way more qualified than me out there to write about new music. I have my personal opinions but I never wanted to be a rock critic. First of all, I have no personal musical ability and I can't tell notes apart. I'm not the best at hearing a band and immediately being able to tell their influences. So, for what it's worth, in no particular order, this is a list of albums that I have enjoyed over the past year. I highly recommend that you give these a listen. And if there is anything out there that makes your list, please let me know!

  1. LOVE THIS POST!!!! I haven't heard of a lot of this and I'm on the hunt for some awesome stuff (and way behind) so thanks!!!

    1. Yay! I'm always welcome to suggest some things if you let me know what you like :)

  2. Great list--I have not listened to enough of these-- time to spotify. Did you hear the new Rufus Wainwright album (Out of the Game) released this year? I was so over him and then he reeled me back in (it's STAGGERINGLY. GOOD.). Happy holidays!

    1. Hey! If we aren't FB friends- find me! I have crazy spotify playlists. I'm pretty neurotic about cataloging new music and I have everything that came out last year in one list, my top choices in another, and they a few other lists based on certain music journals!

      I totally forgot about Rufus. Wow. I think I will need to listen to it!

  3. this is great! i'm so bad and keeping up with new albums that come out. LOVE Grimes' new album though. it's kind of absurd how much i've listened to Circumambient this year.

    1. Jill- are you on Spotify? If so, you should subscribe to my playlists. I have them categorized by year of new new music and best of. I'm kind of neurotic.
