Dr. Dog “THESE DAYS”
from Be the Void (Anti/Epitaph 2012) N —At #12 comes the latest album by this incredible Philly band who never seem to disappoint.
from Algiers (Anti- www.anti.com 2012) N —At #11, Calexico have always been a great live band for me but their studio albums haven't measured up. This one though is a different story. Great songs and can't wait to see them live at the Pageant on January 31.
Allo Darlin' “Neil Armstrong”
from Europe (Slumberland 2012) N —Starting my top 10 is this London band led by the beautiful voice of Australian Elizabeth Morris. If you like Camera Obscura, you're bound to like Allo Darlin'.
Aimee Mann “Labrador”
from Charmer Single (Superego 2012) N —At #9 comes Aimee Mann, always a favorite of mine. I'd put this one as her best release since her classic Bachelor #2.
Father John Misty “Well, You Can Do It Without Me”
from Fear Fun (Sub Pop www.subpop.com 2012) N —#6 - J. Tillman, former drummer of Fleet Foxes, left the band and put out the first album under the moniker Father John Misty in 2012. They'll be at the Firebird next Tuesday, January 8.
Kathleen Edwards “Empty Threat”
from Voyageur (Zoe 2012) N —#5 - From just the 4th full-length of this underappreciated singer songwriter from Ottawa, CA.
Gold Motel “Brand New Kind of Blue”
from Gold Motel (Good as Gold 2012) N —#3 - With no New Pornographers release in 2012, this is as close as I could get. From this Chicago band's 2nd album, loaded with pop hooks.
Field Report “Fergus Falls”
from Field Report (Partisan Records 2012) N —#2 - From the debut album of this band. The leader, Christopher Porterfield, had been in a band from Wisconsin called Deyarmond Edison that also had Justin Vernon and members of Megafaun. He left the band and after several years formed Field Report.
