Albums of the Year: 2012

Tim Barry – 40 Miler

Propagandhi – Failed States

Andy Shauf – The Bearer of Bad News

OFF! – S/T

Title Fight – Floral Green

Leonard Cohen – Old Ideas

In no particular order, these were the albums that mattered most this year. Top Ten lists are usually a crock, since there isn’t actually that much good music out there. Or at least that much different music out there. If it isn’t interesting, it isn’t in my ears.¬†Other significant mentions: Fugazi. This band took up a lot of my time this year, I was only maybe a decade or two behind.

One of my picks was also a pick by The New York Times. Who the hell is Frank Ocean?
