10 discos / Medio Año / 2012 / Amarillo

10 discos y un montón de recomendaciones extra, pocos años tan prolíficos para la música como este 2012, lleno de joyas en diversos géneros, de las que irremediablemente y en ocasiones por razones poco explicables decides quedarte y adoptar solo unas cuantas para siempre. Les dejo mi lista esperando que la segunda mitad del año sea al menos tan buena como esta, enjoy...

10. "Give You the Ghost" - Poliça
The Fly (UK), Apr 20, 2012 (90) "It's an album that reels you in, enveloping everything in a black mist, from the slick protestations of 'Dark Star' to the surging intensity of closer 'Leading To Death'."

9. "Rooms Filled with Light" - Fanfarlo
Consequence of Sound, Feb 28, 2012 (80) "Opulent, unique, but still rooted in Fanfarlo's original pop-folk style, Rooms Filled with Light is an ornate offering for spring."

8. "Put Your Back N 2 It" - Perfume Genius
Prefix Magazine, Mar 7, 2012 (80) "Put Your Back N 2 It is a deeply affecting album, but also a plainspoken one."

7. "An Awesome Wave" - Alt-J
New Musical Express (NME), May 29, 2012 (80) "A brilliantly disquieting debut."

6. "I Love You, It's Cool" - Bear in Heaven
Paste Magazine, Apr 4, 2012 (80) "All told, I Love You, It's Cool won't resonate upon first listen. It'll have to grow on you, but once it does, there's no denying its enchantment."

5. "Tramp" - Sharon Van Etten
Drowned In Sound, Feb 2, 2012 (90) "It's a wonderful record, a colossal achievement, and features some of the most breathtaking, moving and downright beautiful music you'll hear all year."

4. "Bloom" - Beach House
Pitchfork, May 14, 2012 (91) ""Bloom" is also what these 10 songs do, each one starting with the sizzle of a lit fuse and at some fine moment exploding like a firework in slow motion."

3. "Boys & Girls" - Alabama Shakes
Uncut, Apr 6, 2012 (80) "Alabama Shakes are scarcely the first ornery yet soulful rock sound to have emerged from northern Alabama, but they're abundantly worthy bearers of the standard."

2. "Heaven" - The Walkmen
This Is Fake DIY, Jun 5, 2012 (90) "There may well be no such thing as a ten out of ten album, a level of perfection and flawlessness that is by all likelihood totally unobtainable; but it's hard to imagine anyone coming closer than these five men from New York."

1. "Strange Weekend" - Porcelain Raft
Consequence of Sound, Jan 27, 2012 (80) "The legacy of Remiddi's latest LP, Strange Weekend, is the eerily beautiful atmosphere it creates, just like the work of older artists such as Angelo Badalamenti, and more recent work by Ariel Pink, Perfume Genius, and John Maus, who invest a huge amount of emotion and cerebral conceit into their work, which pads out their music with shambolic, poetic insulation."
