My Favorite Albums of 2012

I know the second a commit to write a list I immediately want to change it but sometimes you just have to let these things go.

I’ve included a video from one of the songs from each release because… that’s what we do now. A picture of the album cover just isn’t enough, is it?

(Hmmm. Maybe not so coincidentally, I saw all of these artists perform live during 2012.)

10. Willis Earl Beal – Acousmatic Sorcery

9. Damien Jurado – Maraqopa

8. The Mountain Goats – Transcendental Youth

7. David Byrne & St. Vincent – Love This Giant

6. The Twilight Sad – No One Can Ever Know

5. Shearwater – Animal Joy

4. Alabama Shakes – Boys & Girls

3. Menomena – Moms

2. Father John Misty – Fear Fun

1. Sharon Van Etten – Tramp

(This last video is somewhat NSFW.)

Max: Oh, yes, I’m a big music lover. Would you believe that I once listened to three weeks of Beethoven? Would you believe it? Three weeks!
Villain: I find that quite hard to believe.
Max: Would you believe (thinks a while) two weeks of Bach?
Villain: I don’t think so.
Max: Would you believe… one hour of Looney Tunes?
