Best of 2012

Music picks from Modulation host, Allison Graves.

By the time you read this I am almost guaranteed to be annoyed that a few fantastic albums will have snuck in between the making of this list and the end of 2012. In fact, it was around mid-December of 2011 that I was kicking myself for not having added the following to last year’s list:

POLICA – Give You The Ghost
The Black Keys – El Camino
Phantogram’s single, “Nightlife”

This year the same is bound to occur since I’m already hearing some amazing singles from what I can only assume will be list worthy albums. 2012 has been one wonderful year of eclectic listening. Enjoy.
