2012: Year In Music Review

"I dig music"
-Russell Hammond  Almost Famous

Can't even believe it's that time of year again. Time to talk about the music that's been the background noise for the past year. Each year (2011, 2010, 2009) I list the music that has followed me on my journey for the last 365 days (or 366 as the case may be), whether it's come out in this year or not. Some music is new, some has made a strong reappearance in my playlist, and other music is old but new to me. This is the soundtrack of my year (top 10 albums in no particular order).

Kings of Convenience - Declaration of Dependence
Justin Townes Earle - Midnight at the Movies
Mumford and Sons - Babel
Avett Brothers - Live and Die
Dawes - Nothing is Wrong
Tallest Man on Earth - There's No Leaving Now
John Mayer - Born and Raised
Edward Sharpe and the Magnificent Zeros - Here
Frank Ocean - Channel Orange
Amy Winehouse - Lioness: Hidden Treasures

Ladies and gentlemen, I have taken the liberty of creating a mix on 8tracks.com for you, featuring a key track off each of the aforementioned albums. You can thank me later (in the comments)

Ed. note: MUST add Alabama Shakes to this list. Absolutely incredible album that I hadn't heard before publishing this. Listened to the whole thing- twice- on a recent plane ride.
