craft_spells_gallery_cover

“Craft Spells combine shy synthesizers and and jangly guitars to create a sound reminiscent of Joy Division and indie-shoegaze veterans The Radio Dept. ‘Still Left With Me’ is a touching pop song about love that is born through time and circumstance shrouded in a dream-like atmosphere, making it perfect for a lazy summer afternoon.” (via KEXP)

oberhofer_time_capsules_ii_cover

Technically, this song was first released in 2010, but since it was included on Oberhofer’s debut album Time Capsules II this year and it’s such a good track, i’m including it with this year’s good.

Heaven is a record with the power to grab your heart, like an ex-lover you just can’t shake off–no matter how many years you’ve been without them.” (via BBC Music)

Favorite Albums of 2012 (so far): Part 1

I hadn’t really thought this post would have multiple parts, but it seems my intentions became much more ambitious as I sat down to finally write this.  In my defense, 2012 has been another fantastic year of music.  We’ve had new releases from the likes of Sigur Rós, Beach House, Air, and Sleigh Bells, as well as some really exciting debuts, including those from Alabama Shakes, Porcelain Raft, Clock Opera, and Kishi Bashi.  On top of all that, we still have new stuff from The xx, Passion Pit, Yeasayer, and Animal Collective on the horizon.  Needless to say, I’m in love with a lot of music right now and it’s gonna be super hard for me to narrow down my favorites come December.

So as we wait for the “best of” season, I’m gonna showcase my 40 favorite albums of the year so far.  To make things a bit easier on my end, they’ll be in alphabetical order.  Like I said earlier, narrowing this list down and picking favorites among favorites will be no easy task and I only want to do it once this year.  So without further ado, I present my Favorite Albums of 2012 (so far): Part I.  Enjoy.
