The Bluefat Aesthetic

Best Music of 2012: The List

It's not like one could really come up with a “master list” of all the best music made in any given year…or is it? You know, we are talking about a lot of truly worthy music that gets released during a 12-months' span, and of course one only has so much time and mind to devote to each and every one that comes across the old desk. Nevertheless, Bluefat presents, why yes, THE BEST MUSIC OF 2012! Now, this list emphasizes as much individual thinking as possible about the strictly musical content, direction, motivation and integrity (and taste) of the sounds in consideration, so we’re not exactly following trends as such, and we don’t particularly care if the music might seem square. And suffice to say that this list here is eclectic to a certain point, though it'll betray a few obvious biases and omissions –– we left certain items out because A) we didn't happen to hear them or B) we thought they were, if not out and out bullpucky, then just not quite good enough.

So, please scan this list; use it as a handy reference guide to good music if you're in need of some tipping on that. We personally guarantee that every item on THE LIST is well worth your attention and indeed will pay enormously soul-satisfying dividends.
