On my radio show Hindsight, I spin a wide range of indie pop and rock from all sides of the pond. This year offered a lot of great songs from which to choose.

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.

"Ode to Love" by Brothers in Law (CF/WWNBB)

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)
