2012 Top Ten List

I usually write a lot about these, but there wasn't time this year.

10. Menomena - "Moms" (emotionally battering)
9. Dum Dum Girls - "End of Daze EP" (great variety of songs in this succinct, cohesive statement)
8. Daniel Rossen - "Silent Hour / Golden Mile EP" (still the best part of Grizzly Bear)
7. Hot Chip - "In Our Heads" (bring your heart to the dance floor)
6. Beach House - "Bloom" (moody goodness)
5. Japandroids - "Celebration Rock" (keep pressing the gas into your 30s)
4. Ana Tijoux - "La Bala" (stunning, powerful, great wordsmith)
3. Spiritualized - "Sweet Heart Sweet Light" (tuneful, soulful)
2. Frank Ocean - "Channel ORANGE" (hard to stop listening to)
1. Fiona Apple - "The Idler Wheel..." (Fiona Apple-y)

On to 2013!
