Best Albums of 2012

A flood of great music this year. I’ve also realized in building this list that I have started to do a lot more song-listening than album-listening. So there are albums on this list that won’t have any songs on the best list, and vice versa. Here’s the list (with Spotify links!)

Alt-J // An Awesome Wave
Andrew Bird // Break It Yourself and Hands of Glory
Benjamin Gibbard // Former Lives
Calexico // Algiers
Colossal Gospel // Circles
Dave Matthews Band// Away From The World
Derek Webb/SOLA-MI // Ctrl/NEXUS
Fiona Apple // *The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords **Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do*
fun. // Some Nights
Jack White // Blunderbuss
Japandroids // Celebration Rock
Lord Huron // Lonesome Dreams
M. Ward // A Wasteland Companion
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis // The Heist
Menomena // Moms
Miike Snow // Happy To You
Mumford & Sons // Babel
Nick Waterhouse // Time’s All Gone
Of Monsters and Men // My Head Is An Animal
Passion Pit // Gossamer
Purity Ring // Shrines
Saint Motel // Voyeur
Shovels and Rope // O’ Be Joyful
