Toro Y Moi
"Anything in Return"
Carpark

Sometime last year, I tweeted that I'd really like it if someone could send me a list of all possible types of "core" music. I'd heard of grindcore, nerdcore and of course hardcore, but it seemed like the core family tree had the potential to be vast and ridiculous, and I figured the Internet could help. However, like most of what I put on Twitter, this request garnered minimal response.

"Tender Is the Night"
Old Man Luedecke
True North

"Tender Is the Night" is the fifth solo collection from Old Man (Chris) Luedecke, and it feels like some of the musical ideas he's been working with are really beginning to gel. His writing has always been very strong, remaining true to the roots of American folk and country music, though dealing with modern themes and ideas.

The Zolas
"Ancient Mars"
Light Organ Records

Oh, Canada. I've always thought that Canada and St. Louis have a lot in common. Both experience frigid winters, both are relegated in popular conscience as being backwaters of significant size and both carry an inferiority complex about their place in that conscience, because both know that they're capable of so much more than anyone gives them credit for producing.

Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott
"We're Usually a Lot Better than This"
Full Lights

In 2000 Tim O'Brien and Darrell Scott released "Real Time," a gorgeous album of duets by two complete masters of instrumentation, arrangement and performance. Beautiful.

Mark O'Connor
"American Classics"
OMAC

It's probably safe to say that this album won't appear on many year-end best of 2012 lists, likely because it's really a kind of teaching tool: a presentation of the pieces that Mark O'Connor included in his fiddle method books.

"What Hides Inside" may only be the title to the new Jump Starts record but it aptly describes the current scene in St. Louis.

Dave Gunning
"No More Pennies"
Wee House Music

Sometimes with new albums, as is the case with Dave Gunning's "No More Pennies," it's as much about the packaging as it is the music.

Beth Orton
"Sugaring Season"
Anti-

Capable of creating both lush, verdant landscapes of sound and sparse, haunting ballads, Beth Orton is a master of the acoustic guitar-driven, folk-pop song.

Green Day
"¡Uno!"
Reprise

"¡Uno!" plays as an exuberant, physical release after several years of Green Day's devotion to political punk-rock operas.

Columbia

Prior to recording 2007's "Cease to Begin," Band of Horses vocalist Ben Bridwell relocated the band from Seattle to his home state of South Carolina.
