Below are my top albums of 2012....so far. Part 2
Vancouver by way of Montreal bedroom artist makes pure pop bliss. Maybe my favourite album of the year.
12. Jack White- Blunderbuss
No other words....Jack White is a genius
Jack White-Sixteen Saltines
13. Japandroids- Celebration Rock
Garage rock mixed with Springsteen...a harder edged Hold Steady.
Japandroids-The Nights of Wine and Roses
14. Killer Mike- R.A.P. Music
Old school hip hop with a social conscious
Killer Mike- Reagan
15. Memoryhouse- The Slideshow Effect
Dissed by the mainstream music press...but I still love them. Canada's answer to Beach House?
Memoryhouse-The Kids Were Wrong
16. Public Image Ltd.- This is PiL
Johnny Lydon never sounded better and they get along just fine without guitarist Jah Wobble.
Public Image Ltd.- One Drop
17. Saint Etienne- Words and Music by Saint Etienne
British dance kings come back with solid album
18. Spiritualized- Sweet Heart Sweet Light
Lead singer Jason Pierce may have almost died twice but his music is full of life
19. Trailer Trash Tracys- Ester
Great debut from Scottish post punk/shoegaze band.
Trailer Trash Tracys-Candy Girl
20. The Walkmen- Heaven
Maybe the most beautiful album of the year.
