Celebration Rock: 12 From 2012

This has been a great year for music. Yuko and I drove to Coachella in April to experience Radiohead and Tupac's hologram; we saw Lucinda Williams at the Bowery Ballroom in New York and the Knights at the historic Naumburg Bandshell in Central Park, then Public Enemy in Brooklyn's Wingate Park...back to Edmonton for The Tallest Man on Earth with the phenomenal Strand of Oaks supporting; then Leonard Cohen, Paul McCartney....and we're ending the year on a high note in Jamaica following some crazy riddims. Here are 12 of my fave tunes from the year:

1. Japandroids: "The House That Heaven Built"

2. First Aid Kit: "Emmylou"

3. Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti: "Only In My Dreams"

4. Alabama Shakes: "Hold On"

5. Grizzly Bear: "Yet Again"

6. A.C. Newman: "I'm Not Talking"

7. Kishi Bashi: "Manchester"

8. Rufus Wainwright: "Montauk"

9. Grimes: "Genesis"

10. Low Cut Connie: "Boozophilia"

11. Leonard Cohen: "Going Home"

12: Himanshu: "Womyn"
