April’s Best Albums of 2012

dog-listening-radio best of 2012


It’s that time of year again. The time when any blogger, music critic, or music writer worth their weight publishes their “best of ” list. And, as it has been for the past two years, this is a list of some of my favorites, whether they are long-lived album obsessions or newly discovered constantly-on-a-loop jams, it really doesn’t matter because either way you cut it, they’re still my favorites, which constitutes the best in my opinion.
