Fresh 2012 Beats

Some tracks I've been enjoying that came out this year. Listen up boys and girls if you haven't already
1Kendrick Lamar
Good Kid

While "Swimming Pools" and "The Recipe" have garnered every bit of the attention they deserve, this deep bit of music rings true. Kendrick's on his game throughout and the refrain is so very catchy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8q5pCozOy5g
2Schoolboy Q
My Hatin Joint

Music that just makes you wanna smile. Head bobs up and down and taking it all in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KnnYiW5dnhQ
3Ab-Soul
Pineal Gland

"It was all a dream, I swear it never happened" -- Ab-Soul, the only Black Hippy member not from the ghetto brings sophistication to the plate, and he's so on with this track and throughout 'Control System'. http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=XiMt_5DRpeM
4Jay Rock
Money Trees (Feat. Kendrick Lamar)

ya bish? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMR45VOKj58
5Flatbush Zombies
Thug Waffle

nonsense with perfect flow that makes schoolboy feel even more comprehensible. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=do9VLONS86Y
6Burial
Loner

if i had my doubts in the man's continuing career as a solo artist, they were quabbled immediately after hearing his ep, this being the track that i connect with most http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sYOkaOU1T0U
7John Talabot
Destiny

Soothing as ever, this relaxing little electronic number is in line with Bonobo and other pure chillout that's around http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnQpYijJjf4
8Grimes
Be a Body

While rightful attention has been given to the fantastic tracks Genesis and Oblivion, this number here shows off Boucher in a more relaxed state. The oft heralded artist really came into her own this year with Shrines, one of the years' best http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o6lda4lEs9g
9The Shins
40 Mark Strasse

Whoever James Mercer puts around himself, he's capable of incredible things. While most of the album was unable to match early precedents he set, this one is one of the Shins' best http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kFH5A9J1uA
10Animal Collective
Today's Supernatural

comeon le-le-le-le-le-le-le GO! came at just the right time, this bit of ridiculous noise always cheers me up beautifully http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=47xbkT3calM
11Anais Mitchell
Coming Down

Mezzmerizing (get it?) voice. Had me fascinated the moment I heard her. Grabs hold of the highest of emotions, brings down the most outlandish of daydreams, and is just so beautiful through and through http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=cmwtQXRRiWg
12A$AP Rocky
Hands on the Wheel (Feat. Schoolboy Q)

"Am I over-faded hell yea it's true" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dGd9DTTrX4U
