I keep having this internal debate of Japandroids or John Mayer as my number one this year. It's a very tough call.

Gotta love all the Menzingers love =) Needs more Hot Water Music though... Exister is every bit as good as on the impossible past.

Did no one pick Brendan Kelly's album because they didn't really like or it because no one listened to it? Has such a great Skeezy-old-guy-sitting-in-the-corner-of-a-strip-club Tom Waits/Greg Duli style vibe to it.

@Jason I assume the only reason Handwritten isn't on your list is that you only included releases from the first half of the year?

If I could list 15, I would have included Brendan's record in there somewhere.

I've been waiting for this, I seem to have missed a few albums in the past few months.

not being able to do a numbered list, considering I've started listening to Mixtapes, Make Do And Mend and Japandroids too recently, this is the list of records I've heard in 2012 that I think are worth recommending, some of them being really good:

Driver Friendly - Bury a Dream
The Menzingers - On The Impossible Past
If These Trees Could Talk - Red Forest
Make Do And Mend - Everything You Ever Loved
No Trigger - Tycoon
Mixtapes - Even On The Worst Nights
Silverstein - Short Songs
The Jealous Sound - A Gentle Reminder
Japandroids - Celebration Rock

Gates - Gates EP
I the Mighty - Karma Never Sleeps EP
Moving Mountains - New Light EP
Senses Fail - Follow Your Bliss EP

2) The Forecast - Everybody Left
3) John Mayer - Born and Raised
