Plateaus – Do It For You

ep48 Plateaus – Do It For You

San Diego pop punk band Plateaus released their debut LP in the fall of 2012 and it is a rollicking good time top to bottom. The single Do It For You b/w Jasmine was released in May and a video for the song came out in the summer.

Thee Oh Sees – Lupine Dominus

ep47 Thee Oh Sees – Lupine Dominus

Another for the Best of 2012, Thee Oh Sees album Putrifiers II kicks butt and engages your chakras with rhythmic mantras that keep the inner fire burning. Light some incense and candles then prepare to be rocked.

The Janitors – MSSG

ep46 The Janitors – MSSG

With the release of 2 phenomenal EP’s this year, The Janitors are high on my “when’s your next release?” list. Their fuzzy, loud psych drone noise fits right into the soundtrack of my life.

Slug Guts – Suckin’ Down

ep45 Slug Guts – Suckin’ Down

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.

Tyvek – Scaling

Tyvek – Scaling

Detroit punks Tyvek released a new album early in November and it’s moving up my list of best of 2012. The straight up lo-fi fuzzy punk of On Triple Beams is only slightly more refined and evolved than their previous album Nothing Fits. Their label In The Red Records is a good place to start a record collection.

Titus Andronicus – Ecce Homo

Titus Andronicus – Ecce Homo

New Jersey punks Titus Andronicus released their third album Local Business in October of this year. The music is good, the kids are punks, the first track “Ecce Homo” is the way an album ought to begin. Have a listen, won’t you?
