Sethdavid's Top 20 Of 2012
20Freelance Whales

Way less immediate than the first album, but definitely a good listen.
19Sleigh Bells
Reign Of Terror

Not bad, but it can't hold a candle to Treats.
18Crystal Castles

I often feel conflicted by this band. Half their tracks are awesome, half kind of make me want to punch myself in the face. They can be a bit grating.
17The xx

Honestly, this album was a little bit disappointing. Again, not a bad album but their debut had a bit more going for it.
16Susanne Sundfor
The Silicone Veil

The first of this years ?discoveries? for me, this album is pretty boss, the sounds that she uses are awesome and her voice is very unique. If you haven?t listened to her, check out ?White Foxes? and ?Among Us?.
15Lana Del Rey
Born to Die

People love to hate Lana Del Rey and this album or whatever, but I think it's catchy and well done.
14Holy Other

Sounds like a mix between SBTRKT and How To Dress Well. I dig.
13Best Coast
The Only Place

Simple. Good.
12Bloc Party

I found this album to be pleasantly surprising. I was on the fence when they released Octopus, but songs like Kettling and Real Talk really make this CD.
11Marilyn Manson
Born Villain

When I first heard this album I was like "MANSON MAKES A COMEBACK", then I listened to his earlier music again and was like, "Well, not quite, but its still pretty good"
10 Gypsy & The Cat
The Late Blue

"Do you know that youre going to be just fine today" || A nice progression from their first CD, still catchy, but added much needed variation within the songs.

"Now Im evolving from a child to an aging child" || Even with one band member leaving Menomena still makes music that is simultaneously complex and catchy
8Two Door Cinema Club

"The devil will want you back" || Not quite as immediate as "Tourist History", thats not necessarily a bad thing though
Celebration Rock

"Remember the night you were already in bed, said 'fuck it', got up to drink with me instead" || There is something oddly romantic about this album, and Continuous Thunder may be my favorite love song of the year
Ten Stories

"I dont know if I know, though some with certainty insist no certainty exists" || I personally loved Its All Crazy... but it is nice to see a bit of energy infused back into mewithoutYou. This CD met my expectations pretty precisely, its damn good because so is everything mewithoutYou has done. When a band gets to this point in their career and theyve always put out quality music its hard to imagine that they?ll stray from that.
5How To Dress Well
Total Loss

"Waiting for the day when you could say safely 'I have my place, I have my home, I have my future" || This album is just as good as, if not better than, Love Remains. Solid.
4Amanda Palmer
Theatre Is Evil

"I would have told you if you'd only asked me" || I was rather surprised by my love for this album as Ive never really gotten into Amanda Palmer before, but this has made me start listening to her past work and I must say Im definitely a fan. This album has a lot going for it, its infectious (Melody Dean) and emotional (The Bed Song). Im also a huge fan of the production for this album, John Congleton you ARE the man.
3Graph Rabbit

"I stand where I lie, my shoes untied, my name has changed and it sounds so strange" || HELLO, YOU, READER, CHECK OUT THIS ALBUM! Graph Rabbit is by far my favorite music discovery of the year. This is one of those albums that when Im listening to it I dont really want to do anything else, I just want to imagine myself in the snowy dream filled landscape that Graph Rabbit so effortlessly conjures. Seriously check this album out, I want this band to get well known for two reasons: 1) They are good and they deserve it, 2) I really want this album to get pressed on vinyl. For fans of: Radiohead, Bon Iver, Nick Drake.
I Am Gemini

"All of our sins are rising again, like skeletons" || I'm in love with this album. Cursive's seventh full length and they still manage to reinvent their sound. Its a lot of fun. And Tim Kasher tries to trick the listener into thinking that he actually wrote an album that isnt about himself but IMHO, it so totally is.
1Fiona Apple
The Idler Wheel...

"Nothing wrong when a song ends in a minor key" || This album is flawless and Fiona Apple is a magnificent human being. I have nothing left to say.
