Top 10 Albums of 2012

Happy new year’s eve!  Do you have big plans for the evening?  Aaron and I are jumping on a plane this afternoon to spend the night celebrating with friends up in San Francisco!  Seeing as it is a day for top lists, we asked our resident music supervisor, Matt Mugford to give us his favorite albums of the year.  Some of them made it into these playlists over the last couple of months and some of them I am listening to for the first time!  If you’re still putting together your playlist for tonight’s big bash, you’re going to want to check these out!

1. The Helio Sequence – Negotiations
2. Husky – Forever So
3. Milo Greene – Milo Greene
4. Ponderosa – Pool Party
5. Of Monsters & Men – My Head Is An Animal
6. Kathleen Edwards – Voyageur
7. Band Of Skulls – Sweet Sour
8. Delta Spirit – Delta Spirit
9. White Rabbits – White Rabbits
10. Bruno Mars – Unorthodox Jukebox

Before we bid the year adieu, I HAVE to share this video with you!  It’s Google’s year-in-review video that Matt supervised the music for, and I’m moved to tears every time I watch it.  I dare you to try not to cry!

Have a wonderful and safe night tonight.

Here is to a 2013 that surpasses all of our expectations!

 

  1. Love this list, Jen. It’s got a couple albums we didn’t get around to listening to, but any list with Milo Greene is good in my book 🙂

    Happy New Year!

  2. I LOVE when people list new music…I don’t have satellite radio and where I live I only get the most popular Pop songs so I’m really missing out! I regretfully haven’t heard of any of these bands, except Of Monsters & Men & Bruno Mars of course…I will definitely be checking them out!

    This is such a great list…I have several of these, but will definitely be adding the rest to my library! Also, I’ve gotta say – I love that commercial. Amazing job on the music Matt – it’s perfect. Best commercial of 2012.
