AP.net Playlist: Best of January 2012

Posted by - 12:38 PM on 01/31/12
We want to make sure you didn't miss any great music that came out last month, so we put together a playlist full of tunes from January that we liked - and hope you'll dig too. It's on Rdio and Spotify. Check it out and feel free to share. Also, if you think there's stuff we missed, let us know in the replies.

Most of the stuff I wanted to included wasn't available on Rdio. Lots of good stuff though.

Anthony Green, Hit The Lights, and Craig Finn were my picks. Also happy to see Enter Shikari and John K Samson on it

This bro-punk sound isn't passed yet? Thought FYS killed it dead.

Love Troubled Coast too, but what is bro-punk? Think these guys bring in their own sound with this EP. Love to see them release an album this year.

I don't think they're bro punk at all. I only see them getting compared to bands like Touché/La Dispute

Unless I clicked the wrong bandcamp link ... it sounds like A Day to Remember needing a throat lozenge.

They sound more like Pianos Become the Teeth

Think this is leaning toward the La Dispute/Toche Amore sound like Zack mentioned. I haven't heard their previous efforts, but heard this was a great leap forward. Hope their album will be a little bit more in that direction.
Back to the list:
Authority Zero is quite catchy and hate Spotify for not having Nada Surf, John K Samson and Craig Finn

Means I'll probably not like it. Haven't really loved anything in that vein since like 2003.

Nice. Thanks for the playlist, makes it easy though I'm sure Rdio presented some limitations in selection. This is similar to the "Best of 2012 so far" thread, which made me want to make a thread at the end of February for everyone to share their favorites to prevent anything from slipping through the cracks.
