In January there was a list of seven or eight records I had heard were on the way that I was excited to hear. Surprisingly only two records from that list makes up my favorite records of 2012 (so far). The last thing I want to do here is focus on negatives so even though I haven’t been overwhelmed with amazing releases so far this year there are several that deserve a second mention and a little bit of your spare change. So, in no particular order, here are a few of my favorites from the first half of the twenty twelve.
There are also a couple of albums that I’ve heard but we haven’t written about yet. So be on the look out for Langhorne Slim’s new record and the new Joe Pug.
And there are a few albums I’m eagerly awaiting but who knows if they’ll make my list at the end of the year but I’ll be a happy boy the day records from American Aquarium, David Wax Museum, and The Avett Brothers show up at my house.
