Best of 2012

2012 was one of the best years for music in recent memory with releases like Alabama Shakes’ debut “Boys & Girls”, David Byrne & St. Vincent’s experimental collaboration album “Love This Giant”, and Frank Ocean’s studio debut “channel ORANGE”. The Dirty Projectors released their most inviting album to date, “Swing Lo Magellan”, which harkens back to mid-60s Beatles sounds.

Highlight tracks in this mix: “Elephant” by Tame Impala, “Sixteen Saltines” by Jack White, and “Hood” by Perfume Genius—a brilliant song that’s only shortcoming is its short runtime (only 2:00).
