Okay, tentative list starts now. 2012 was/is an awesome year for music IMHO. While a few years it's been even hard to cobble together 10 releases I really enjoyed, this time it's about cutting it down to 20. In no particular order at the moment:
- Visions : An awesome video for "Oblivion" and the perfect blend of quirky retro-electro and playful ethereal vocals. The Queen of Hipsterdom at the moment.
2. Twin Shadow
- Confess : Absolutely immaculate retro-pop.
3. Chemical Brothers
- Don't Think : Amazing set. Amazing video.
- Strike EP : Chiptune meets Justice. Amazingly underrated.
5. Ice Choir
- Afar - Wait, this isn't actually from the 80's?!?!
6. Crystal Castles
- III : Not as mind-blowing as the last two, but subtle and catchy. Like the witch-house accents as well.
- Wonky : Best Orbital in years.
- Ufabulum : More electro, and even a few dubstep flavors make this one amazing. And his live tour for this was AMAZING by all accounts.
