Jan 2012: ...stuff

Just a list detailing what I heard this month, piss-poorly put into some kind of enjoyment ranking. I talk about some of the more interesting ones and feature only NEW albums I heard this January - no retro I checked out will be listed. ONLY TOP 10 ALBUMS ARE RANKED COS I'M LAZY; rest are just throw in. Enjoy
1Porcelain Raft
Strange Weekend


*ALBUM OF MONTH* *4* *REVIEWED* A wave of restrained noise that travels on one level yet finds so many shades of slumber-ridden mist at the same time. Lovely.
2Tribes
Baby


*REVIEWED* This has worn off a tad but the ammount of times i hit play on Sappho, Whenever and We Were Children ensures this groups' debut LP deserves a big shout-out from me. VERY divisive round these parts but i found too much too enjoy to care.
3Cloud Nothings
Attack On Memory


*4* WASTED. FUCKING. DAYS.
4Howler
America Give Up


Similar to Tribes in terms of what i got out of this blazing debut. Just incredibly fun, compulsive guitar rock too informed by the past to be critcally great but that's also what makes it such an instant hit.
5The Maccabees
Given To The Wild


*4* *REVIEWED* First great album of 2012, dropping in early Jan this was a lush and mature effort from the Maccabees and really perked up my mood.
6Trailer Trash Tracys
Ester
