The Best LPs of 2012 Countdown: 10 to 1

Finally, I present to you my top 10 records of 2012. Once again, we begin with a pair of honorary mentions — the recent single that’s leading into my most anticipated album of 2013, and an album I know would have made the top 50 had I checked it out in advance of compiling and… Continue reading The Best LPs of 2012 Countdown: 10 to 1
