Finally had a chance to finish this up. Have to say 2012 was a challenge to commit to a solid list. I especially found it difficult to exclude all Shelflife releases. Albums by Burning Hearts, Dylan Mondegreen and The Garlands would surely be in the mix for my top 5. The pains of being unbiased …
But top honors this year is still no real surprise. Violens “True” was an easy love affair. A sound that just defines “wheelhouse” for me. The first three tracks on the record are my most played songs of the year and fittingly so. “Der Microarc” is perhaps one of the best songs written in the past twenty years!
To keep up the podcast tradition, you’ll find my top 20 tracks below. Enjoy and happy holidays!
