2012: 2 Years Later

Been an official Sputter for 2 years now (Joined in 2012, lurked for 3 years rprior). Here are 10 albums from 2012 that I adore.
1Swans
The Seer


This was my first exposure to Swans. Unlike this years' "To Be Kind", "The Seer" uses self indulgence to its advantage. The meandering nature of these tracks captivate the listener at every turn. I find new things to enjoy with every listen. A masterpiece.
2Ne Obliviscaris
Portal of I


Very Opethian-esque melodeath.
3Converge
All We Love We Leave Behind


This has come to be my absolute favorite Converge album. Stellar production. Stellar performances. Everything you could ask for.
4The Antlers
Undersea


It's rare for me to rank an EP so high in a year end list but this Antlers EP contains what is by far some of their best tracks ever.
5Wild Nothing
Nocturne


For summer nights.
6An Autumn for Crippled Children
Only the Ocean Knows


Beautiful and intense - like an ocean.
7Burial
Kindred


Another EP. Also contains some of Burial's best offerings.
8 Godspeed You! Black Emperor
'Allelujah! Don't Bend! Ascend!


A triumphant return to form for post rock's finest.
9How to Dress Well
Total Loss


Krell finds his voice.
10 Kendrick Lamar
good kid, M.A.A.D. city


Old school vibes.
