At the end of 2012, a number of websites that I follow and favorite bands of mine have released their top 10 lists for the year. Every year this results in the discovery of gems that I had missed and might have otherwise overlooked across a variety of genres. I have a long list of new records to explore, but before fully tackling it I wanted to share my personal favorite newly released music that I listened to throughout the year. Although I do this primarily as an amusing way for me to reflect and organize my thoughts, maybe you’ll discover something new that you enjoy. I’ve left some links to my favorite songs as well as links to each full release on Spotify. Please share recommendations from your favorite records of the year!

My merch haul from Warped Tour yesterday in Portland. I enjoy supporting the bands I love.
