- Feels like..
- by Tame Impala
It’s been a long time. Click on the following link to see my favorite albums of the year 2012 and listens to the music and stuff. Cheers.
- Symphony of the Nymph
- by Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
So, Mature Themes is freakishly awesome. Enjoy the Symphony of the Nymph!
- by Chromatics
Ah I forgot to post this future classic. One of the best songs of 2012. ‘Lady’ is off Chromatics’ Kill For Love. Melancholic Disco.
- Long Journey
- by The Allah-Las
Through countless listens this summer. The Allah-Las are not really of this time. fever-dreamy, jangly and fuzzy summer.
- Survival Tactics
- by Joey Bada$$
Joey Bada$$ bringing back the sounds of 90s New York hip-hop at the tender age of 17. Quality.
- Black Mold Grow
- by Levek
Black Mold Grow is very special. I don’t know too much about Levek but he’s about to release his debut album ‘Look a Little Closer’ later this month. Highly recommended.
- What is Worse
- by Cate Le Bon
I’m loving this. Cate Le Bon is a singer-songwriter from Wales. Yes yes.
- Moonlight Mile
- by The Babies
The babies are led by Vivian Girls’ Cassie Ramone and Woods’ Kevin Morby. Their sophomore album Our House On The Hill is due this fall. Check out this tasty appetizer.
- Yes or No
- by the Fresh & Onlys
The Fresh & Onlys will release a new album ‘Long Slow Dance’ this month. I Can’t wait. Yes or No is very promising.
- The Night
- by Exitmusic
Time for some shoe-gazing. One of my fav tracks of 2012 so far. Off the debut album ‘Passage’ from the husband-and-wife-duo Exitmusic.
- Kiss You Forever
- by Poolside
Fwiday 4 win. Tropical kisses and virtual-sun. Check out the ‘Pacific Standard Time’ album by Poolside for some serious balearic / tropical action.
- by Melody's Echo Chamber
The summer-hiatus is over and I’m back. Here’s a stunning track by the French Melody’s Echo Chamber. A fuzzy, psych-pop recorded by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker. Check’it!
- Corvette Cassette
- by Slow Magic
I just rediscovered the über-nice glo-fi stuff by Slow Magic. For more check slowmagic.bandcamp.com
- by Magic Trick
First off – great fkn’ cover art! Ruler of the Night is Tim Cohen’s second LP under the Magic Trick portmanteau. Nice guitar-jangling, tambourine-shaking pop from the prolific frontmat of The Fresh & Onlys.
- Summer Music
- by Advance Base
This is so lovely. Advance Base is Owen Ashworth, formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone. Summer Song is off the recently released album, A Shut-In’s Prayer. Check’it.
- Where The Kids Are
- by Blondfire
This is a fitting, feel-good summery track from last year. Very catchy electro-pop by this a Brazilian-American brother & sister act. Highly suitable for one those telecom commercials. I kid I kid.
- by Squarepusher
Great opening track off the new Squarepusher album, Ufabulum. Drilllllin’ and melodic.
- Headed For The Door
- by Moonface
I’ve been spending a lot of time with Heartbreaking Bravery. The incredibly talented Spencer Krug teamed up with Finnish band Siinai for this album. Heart-aching and beautiful stuff.
- Getaway Tonight
- by Opossom
I’m absolutely in love with this. Endlessly repeatable. You can download some of their tracks (FOR FREE11!!1) here opossom.bandcamp.com. Check it out.
- Cloud Chamber
- by Errors
The Glasgow four piece just released a brand new album – ‘Have Some Faith In Magic’. Having faith in magic (literally) has failed me miserably during my life span – magic is a lot of bogus if you ask me. Anyways. This album is far from perfect (or eh, magical, hur hur hur!) but quite enjoyable.
- by Kindness
Kindness debut album, ‘World, You Need A Change of Mind’ is only a few weeks away. Simply cannot wait. Infectious and addictive disco-leaning killer. Truly great stuff.
- Infatuation (With Your Gyration)
- by The Magnetic Fields
The new Magnetic Fields album has been gettin’ really mixed reviews. It’s all over the place in some odd way, I can’t quite put my finger on it. Anyways, Infatuation is fun.
- by Wild Nothing
Great track from Wild Nothing featuring Twin Sister’s Andrea Estella. Perfectly suited for rainy days of lazy haziness.
