I thought this might be a fun end of the year discussion. I'm sure some arguments will come from this, but let's keep it fun!

 

My Top 5 Albums of 2012

1) "Boys and Girls" by Alabama Shakes

2) "Blunderbuss" by Jack White

3) "Signs and Signifiers" by JD McPherson

4) "Some Nights" by Fun.

5) "Slipstream" by Bonnie Raitt

I definitely agree with "Signs and Signifiers".

Great album! Great artist!

Putting it at #3 was tough, but I think "Blunderbuss" and "Boys and Girls" edged it.

I've recently had it suggested to me to listen to Fiona Apple. Haven't listened to her since her debut.

Okay, it took a while and I had to go a little obscure but here it goes:

The Gaslight Anthem-Handwritten

JD McPherson-Signs & Signifiers

Dave Tucker- In Kind

David Byrne & St. Vincent-Love this Giant

Lee Rocker-Night Train to Memphis

These are in no particular order.

Some great albums already mentioned. I'd add:

Lucero - Women and Work

Japandroids - Celebration Rock

Nick Waterhouse - Time's All Gone

I tried to get into Nick Waterhouse. Hasn't caught my ear yet.

I'll give him a second go around.

The song that hooked me was Some Place - http://youtu.be/zwQxIOlm_xQ

Tried to put these in order but it didn't work, so NO PARTICULAR ORDER:

Mac Demarco 2

Julia Holter - Ekstasis

Ty Segall - Slaughterhouse

Kendrick Lamar - good kid maad city

Frank Ocean - Channel Orange

Also in there: Mount Eerie "Clear Moon/Ocean Roar," Death Grips' "No Love/Deep Web," Swans' "The Seer," and others

"Filters? They keep them on the camels all the time like that? One benefit I can see is that it would provide customization so that one can easily ID one's camel."
