there's too many to name... 2012 was such an excellent year for music (at least music to my taste)


but here's a few:

The One Who Once Was
01-13-2013, 06:19 PM
So many good ones. I'll run off a list of my tops.

Japandroids :: Celebration Rock
http://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/covers/celebration-rock.jpg
I loved this one. The band's sound was just so improved and everything seemed to flow real well. lots of jams on this one, I've actually been playing a lot of it the past few days. I'll probably come back to this one come spring time.

Passion Pit :: Gossamer
http://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/covers/gossamer.jpg
This one is up there with Chunk of Change as my favorite Passion Pit release. It blew Manners out of the water; it seemed to be much more cohesive and authentic than Manners ever did. The themes and experiences portrayed through the music and lyrics is just beautiful. It really gives a look into a manic mind and captures some of that in the music. I had high hopes for this release and waited three long years for it, and it lived up to all the hype.

Purity Ring :: Shrines
http://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/covers/shrines.jpg
New band came out swinging. I loved them after the first few singles I heard, then their full length album was the icing on the cake. Really solid album all the way through, and one of the better (if not best) debuts I heard in 2012.

Chromatics : Kill For Love
http://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/covers/kill-for-love.jpg
This one didn't get too much play time from me, but it was still a really good album.

Grimes :: Visions
http://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/covers/visions.jpg
Incredibly talented musician who doesn't let down on her release.

Crystal Castles :: (III)
http://www.albumoftheyear.org/album/covers/iii.jpg
I waited a long time for this one as well and had very, very high hopes for it. It didn't disappoint and ended up being one of my favorite albums from start to finish from CC. I'm still undecided if it tops their debut release, but it sure is close.

That's just a rundown, there are loads of others I've forgotten. But, these are the ones I still listen to regularly.

Hop Along - "Get Disowned"

http://f0.bcbits.com/z/39/86/3986785887-1.jpg

This album definitely takes the cake as AOTY for me. Between Frances's powerful voice and her excellent songwriting, she wins the hearts and minds of all her listeners. Songs like Tibetan Pop Stars, No Good Al Joad, Kids on the Boardwalk, Laments, and Young and Happy, you can see how impressive the band is.

Modern Baseball - "Sports"

http://f0.bcbits.com/z/28/32/2832085566-1.jpg

I'm gonna say it right now, I'm pretty Philly biased. These guys are an emo/pop band with some really catchy tunes that effectively encompass the teenage/young adult woes.

Basement - "Colourmeinkindness"

http://f0.bcbits.com/z/39/73/3973548864-1.jpg

Basement was a UK hardcore/indie-grunge band that released this fucking gem in Oct. At times channeling 90's grunge and at other times channeling fast paced punk music, they left as quickly as they gained popularity internationally. They went on indefinite hiatus after a US and UK tour.

Adventures - "Adventures 7""

http://f0.bcbits.com/z/28/08/2808183773-1.jpg

This is an EP released by a small band called Adventures. They boast members from Code Orange Kids and you can tell they brought their instrumentation and influences along with them. Unlike COK, they play a more melodic, sometimes pop-infused punk music. The raspy female vocals give this EP a supercharge in terms of life and listen-ability.

Tall Ships - "Everything Touching"

http://f0.bcbits.com/z/20/55/2055515817-1.jpg

British pop-rock band that released some really catchy tunes. I was genuinely surprised by how much I enjoyed this album. The vocalist's soothing voice was a nice contrast the the sometimes abrasive music. At other times, it was soft and very melodic. Overall fun album to listen to.
