Butkuiss 2012

List is self explanatory. I missed a lot this year though.
1 Top 10 Albums of 2012
In order
2Between the Devil and the Deep
Paper Spine


Refused and Fugazi filtered through Modern Life Is War on Bondi Beach. One of the best Australian punk releases of all time; a post-hardcore tour de force by one of the scene's most revered bands. Not a single weak moment.
3Swans
The Seer


Post-punk, post-rock, post-noise, post-Jarboe. Michael Gira does it again. The Apostate is magnificent.
4 Godspeed You! Black Emperor
'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!


One of the best comeback albums ever released, if a bit short. GY!BE are back.
5Converge
All We Love We Leave Behind


This doesn't need any justification. Bannon, Koller, Newton and Ballou are masters of metal/hardcore fusion.
6Aesop Rock
Skelethon


Arguably Aesop's best album in over a decade, and sporting some of the best production in modern hip-hop.
7Deftones
Koi No Yokan


Not as immediate as Diamond Eyes but just as good.
8Departures
Teenage Haze


Modern British hardcore's best up-and-coming band do it again.
9The Elijah
I Loved I Hated I Destroyed I Created


City of Caterpillar meets Godspeed You! Black Emperor. Gospel meets Nightwish. Another great British release.
10Dark Time Sunshine
ANX


Onry Ozzborn and Zavala just get better and better at hip-hop with each release.
11Trioscapes
Separate Realities


I still can't tell if it's jazz fusion being played by tech metal musicians or tech metal being played by jazz fusion musicians.
12 Top EP of 2012
13Burial
Kindred


Hauntingly beautiful.
14 Best Local Album of 2012
15DZ Deathrays
Bloodstreams


The heirs to Death From Above 1979's kingdom.
16 Best Local EP of 2012
17Occupants
The Aviator


Indie doom pop that's one part The Jezabels and one part The Cure.
18 Best Sputnik Music
19Sudatsuga
Blue Moon Saiyeed


Graham Reich's alternative gypsy swag folk album is just brimming with mandolins.
20Love American
Disquiet


Melodic Post-hardcore that follows somewhere between Defeater and Pianos Become the Teeth. Adam Thomas is a beast.
