Here are some of the records I couldn’t stop listening to in 2012:
1. Portugal the Man – In the Mountain In the Clouds. I loved this record so much. Great companion to All Things Must Pass.
2. Iggy Pop – Lust for Life. The trio of songs that begins with “Tonight” alone is some of my favorite music ever, plus “Success”, you can’t beat it!
3. Dirty Beaches – Badlands. Strangely hypnotic with a killer retro voice. Make more records dude!
4. Fever Ray – S/T. This has got to be in my top 5 albums ever. I’d love to watch Karin Dreijer Andersson working in the studio.
5. Notorious B.I.G. – Ready to Die. Dude was a genius.
6. AC/DC – Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap. Maybe the best album ever for working out on an elliptical trainer.
7. Brian Eno – Apollo. This is the greatest album to play videogames like Fallout or Minecraft to.Read More
