Another album to add to the best of 2012, Playin’ In Time With the Deadbeat is loaded with twangy guitar, pounding rhythm, and howling vocals. Australian band, Slug Guts, created a mood with this album; a bit dark but pleasantly warm.
Marnie Stern’s s/t album was right at the top of my best of 2011, so I’m excited to see she’s got another album scheduled to be released in March of 2013, and for now we’ll listen to the first release off that album “Year of the Glad”
WIXIW the summer release by Liars is another nominee for album of the year. Plenty to like about this album, especially if you like turning the volume up and the lights down. The video for the song can be found here.
