Tennis … Young & Old … 2012

Tennis’s 2nd full length album may be even better than their first. Simple, dreamy, nostalgic pop. Songs about young love, traveling, and dreams. This album is heavenly, can’t stop listening to it! Totally recommended.

First Aid Kit … The Lion’s Roar … 2012

With Bright Eye’s musicians at the helm, First Aid Kit’s second album is more produced and contained but doesn’t sacrifice their lush, youthful harmonies, more civilian and less folky, they seem to have embraced indie stardom. Or maybe they’re just older.

Porcelain Raft … Strange Weekend … 2012

Porcelain Raft is definitely a fitting name. This music is floaty, dreamy, simple. The vocals are totally androgynous. Cool.

Passion Pit … Gossamer … 2012

If Merrill Garbus of tUnE-yArDs focused more on melody than on percussion, she might sound a bit like Michael Angelakos of Passion Pit. Gorgeous pop with falsetto male vocals and intricate, sugary beats deals with subjects as heavy as immigration, alcoholism, economic disparity, suicide, mental illness, drugs, and domestic abuse. Best New Music on Pitchfork!

Goldfrapp … The Singles … 2012

A collection of singles from UK synthpop duo. Lots of catchy songs. I think the first one was featured in a car commercial. If the cover was any less enticing I might not wanna listen to it. But still, give it a try.
