Clercqie's 2012

So yeah, another one of these lists. Just trying to get discussion going on what I missed.
30Pulled Apart By Horses
Tough Love


Just put the volume to the max level and go crazy. It works for me.
29Claro Intelecto
Reform Club


Intruiging record. I hoped it would be a bit more engaging though.
28OFF!
OFF!


I need more hardcore like this, instead of all that pseudo-metal crap (no disrespect).
27The Mount Fuji Doomjazz Corporation
Egor


I have to listen to this a bit more, but it's very impressive. Even after only 8 listens or so.
26Jack White
Blunderbuss


I miss the White Stripes. Still a very good record though.
25Scuba
Personality


Dance motherfuckers!
24Field Music
Plumb


This record is all over the place. But the hooks on these tracks are irresistible.
23Pelican
Ataraxia/Taraxis


Dense.
22Swarms
Low Sun


This has not been well received, but I still really like. The vocal parts are niiiice.
21Orbital
Wonky


Not their most engaging work, but still a very decent return to form. I saw them live in April and it was breathtaking.
20Foxy Shazam
The Church Of Rock And Roll


This is so much fun.
19John Talabot
fIN


Summertime!!!
18St. Lucia
St. Lucia


Summertime!!! [2]
17Stumbleine
Drifting Youth


Unsurprisingly, this has Swarms written all over it. In a way, it's even more relaxing.
16Craig Finn
Clear Heart Full Eyes


Probably some of the best lyrics put on record in 2012.
15Sithu Aye
Isles


I'm not a metal fan at all, but this is really really cool.
14dEUS
Following Sea


Far from their best, still better than most things out there.
13Perfume Genius
Put Your Back N 2 It


For when I get emotional and stuff.
12Shackleton
Music For The Quiet Hour/The Drawbar Organ EPs


It's Shackleton, of course it's nothing short of amazing.
11Burial
Kindred


It's his best release, better than Untrue (but only by a margin).
10Anoice
The Black Rain


I absolutely love this kind of Japanese mixing of classical and post-rock.
9Japandroids
Celebration Rock


You know why.
8LHF
Keepers Of The Light


This is my kind of dance music. Double Helix is THE producer to watch in the future.
7 Isbells
Stoalin


Forget The Tallest Man On Earth, this is the folk record of the year so far.
6Cloud Nothings
Attack On Memory


Albini does it again. Can't wait to see them live this summer.
5OST
Invisible Ink For Sketching Ghosts


Very intriguing music. The dialogue samples are the icing on the cake.
4The Men
Open Your Heart


Love the new direction they took on this. Oscillation is by far my song of the year.
3Monolake
Ghosts


Cold, dark, sterile, clinical and perfect
2Clubroot
III - MMXII


The first one of his records that's more than just "cool stuff"
1Amon Tobin
Amon Tobin


Like there's anything else that has come close, this year.
