Wax Tailor - Dusty Rainbow from the Dark.  (The cd deluxe edition is amazing.  Much better packaging then the vinyl.  The first cd has the album and then a pause at the end and it has the singles without the narration.  The 2nd disc was instrumental.  The vinyl dosnt include the instrumental.

The album has Narration by Don McCorkindale telling a story about a child set to Wax Tailors work  It was just amazing!)

Cloud Nothings - Attack on Memory

Grimes - Visions

First Aid Kit - The Lions Roar

Hilltop Hood - Drinking from the Sun

Two of the albums that impressed me the most from 2012. There were other albums as well but these two albums have in common although in a different way that they manage to blend the past-present-future into the sound of 2012!

 

Chromatics - Kill For Love

Seriously? Deadmau5 made that list? I thought that new album was awful. Nice to see Shrines and FlyLo.

I understand why a lot of people hate it, i mean some songs were very meh (Maths and Failbait) but i love deadmau5's style, and i can't get enough of it. F'n pig was a disappointment though, the set up was amazing but the 2nd half wasn't as good. Plus, the previous versions of it were better.

I gotta retract my Channel Orange vote.  Good Kid Maad City is bar none best of the year.

Must mention Lord Huron - Lonesome Dreams

 

Just discovered these guys. Been playing the album a lot lately and in my opinion they are up there with Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver. Do yourself a favour and check them out!
