    End of years always bring the polls, the best ofs and the knowledge that you probably missed out on hearing loads of good stuff!

    As I've had to do a few of the Best 2012 albums, here are largely my Top 12 - though no doubt there are probably another equally fine dozen I've forgotten about :)

    In no particular order


    CHAIRLIFT - Something

    CLOCK OPERA - Ways To Forget

    COLD PUMAS - Persistent Malaise

    TAME IMPALA - Lonerism

    DIIV - Oshin

    MOON DUO - Circles

    TOY - TOY

    BRETON - Other People's Problems

    GRIZZLY BEAR - Shields

    ZULU WINTER - Language

    PERFUME GENIUS - Put Your Back N 2 It

    JESSIE WARE - Devotion

    It remains to be seen if I'll still like any of these in 6 months time but off the top of my head and in no order i've enjoyed...

    Fu****susha - Mabushii itazura na inori (this one is probably my favorite actually)
    Iris Dement - Sing The Delta
    Scott Walker - Bish Bosch
    Human Teenager - Animal Husbandry
    The Tenses - Conform
    Smegma - Ever and Anon
    Tom Recchion - Proscenium
    Farrah Abraham - My Teenage Dream Ended


    The new Van der Graaf Generator one was a bit disappointing

    Fu****susha is not a bad word!

    Possibly not everyones cup of tea but it would be boring if we all liked the same stuff.
