Some Nights is about the only thing that I've loved this year. Liked others, but yeah.

Ok so 2012 has a bajillion high profile releases coming up in March - May, but here's what has me interested so far... albums I've enjoyed on some level so far this year:

Abyssal - Denouement (black metal)
Born Gold - Body Songs (weird pop)
Andrew Bird - Break It Yourself (folk)
Burn Idols - Theodicy (post-hardcore)
Caravels + Gifts From Enola - Well Worn (emo)
Dodecahedron - Dodecahedron (black metal)
Everytime I Die - Ex Lives (metalcore)
The Flashbulb - Opus At The End of Everything (electronic)
Ital - Hive Mind (idunno)
fun. - Some Nights (pop)
Grimes - Visions (pop)
Hodgy Beats - EP (hip-hop)
The Jealous Sound - A Gentle Reminder (alternative)
Kayo Dot - Gamma Knife (Kayo Dot)
Loma Prieta - IV (screamo)
Memoryhouse - The Slideshow Effect (chill)
The Menzingers - On The Impossible Past (pop-punk)
NAILS / Skin Like Iron - Split (hardcore)

more, importantly, what am I missing that I should hear?
Popping in to say that, while Born Gold are some of the best dudes and one of the best bands and that album is too much fun to be real, it did come out last year (and was easily top 5 for me). Go see them live if you ever get the chance, your life will altered for the better.

Records I love that you haven't already mentioned but I think may appeal to you:

Blondes - S/T
Cloud Nothings - Attack On Memory
Fort Romeau - Kingdoms
Frankie Rose - Interstellar
John Talabot - ƒIN
Scuba - Personality
Tanlines - Brothers
Xiu Xiu - Always

Also, Nite Jewel, Oberhofer and Porcelain Raft are all worth a look. While I'm not hugely familiar with either, the cursory listens I've had of each have been pretty good.

My two clear-cut favorites for AOTY so far would have to be either Every Time I Die "Ex Lives" or The Mars Volta "Noctourniquet."

Kidding me. How did I not realise the MArs Volta had a new album out. So out of touch these days. Still havent gotten round to listening to the new ETID album either. Im still dissecting their last one till i know every guitar squeal of by heart.
