Check out my list of top 10 albums, and feel free to leave a comment with your favorite song of 2012.

"Just For Fun" by Alpaca Sports (Dufflecoat)

Pure indie pop perfection from Sweden.

Part of the thriving post punk scene in Pesaro, Italy. Album due in early 2013.

"Easily Led" by Fountains (Beautiful Strange)

Quintet from London brilliantly combining post-punk and shoegaze sounds.

"Your Doubting Heart" by the Hobbes Fanclub (Shelflife)

Pop from Paris.

"Green Eyed" by September Girls (Soft Power)
