I like music. 2012 has been a very good year, in my opinion, and my top five albums were difficult to discern. However, as people like lists (and I like lists), here is my top five albums of the year. Also presented neatly as a take-away playlist on Spotify, Wednesday Graveyear: 2012 TopAlbums. Click the link or play in-browser here.
- Errors – Have Some Faith in Magic
- Deftones – Koi No Yokan
- Loscil – Sketch from New Brighton
- Arrange – New Memory
- The Walkmen – Heaven
Also some notable entries from this year:
Tim Hecker and Daniel Lopatin – Instrumental Tourist
RM Hubbert – Thirteen Lost and Found
The Twilight Sad – No One Can Ever Know
Grizzly Bear – Shields
Shearwater – Animal Joy
Beach House – Bloom
Liars – WIXIW
Tall Ships – Everything Touching
Gravenhurst – The Ghost in Daylight
All of the above (and many more) appear on the Wednesday Graveyear: 2012 Top Tracks playlist, to take-away too and play in-browser here.
Hope you’ve had a good year too. And yes, the Wednesday Graveyard: “Live” will return, I promise. Probably over the Christmas period, for a January 2013 release.
