My personal highlight of 2012 was releasing Trophy Scars' Alphabet. Alphabets. on vinyl. It still surprises me that I did it. Finally getting my Blink tattoo was cool as well. Plus a ton of great shows. Here's to more in 2013.

Me too! That's why it's so amazing. And we only have about 20 copies left, which is pretty mind blowing.

That Trophy Scars record is absolutely fantastic. One of the most emotional records I've ever heard.

You forgot Periphery and the Contortionist. Glad to see you added metal to your list of bests

Awesome list. I haven't listened enough yet but the Circle Takes The Square album is great so far.

...Misser right above Modern Baseball seems a bit like preferring sentimentality over sentiment...

I liked Periphery's first album but never got around to the next one. Never really gave The Contortionist a chance either. I'll have to check them out.

You mean because I like Transit/TTNY? While that's true, I'm also a sucker for a catchy chorus, which that album is full of. I've also only spent about a month with the Modern Baseball album, so it may very well move up over time.

Highly recommend the new Contortionist album.

Tower & The Fool getting the love they deserve. Great album.

Man, I should have listened to this Birds In Row record everyone was hyping before the year ended. It definitely would have found its way on the list.
