Best of 2012 so far: What albums are you loving?


So, we are pretty much a full 1/3rd of the way through 2012 already. Tell me that hasn’t gone fast!! Scary! During these past 4 months we have been listening to a hell of a lot of music and unearthing some amazing new bands as well as enjoying new releases by a number of already established acts.

To try and loosely document what we have been listening to throughout the year I thought I’d make a new post and list some of our faves with the aim to update this list as we hit each new third. Hopefully by the end of the year we will have a pretty comprehensive list to reference when compiling our ‘Best Of 2012’ list.

Please tell us your top 5 or 10 so far by leaving a comment and please share the post via Facebook and Twitter to see if we can get some discussion going. It would be great to pick up on some releases that we may have missed. Oh, and they don’t have to be rock or metal. They can be any genre at all. All suggestions welcome!!
