    Die Antwoord - Ten$ion. There isn't another group quite like Die Antwoord, and it's still crazy to think they do everything in earnest. This album doesn't seem to have a track that grabs me like Enter the Ninja did.

    Dan Deacon - America. Despite having a full orchestra for a good portion of this album, it feels less 'musical' than Bromst.

    High on Fire - De Vermis Mysteriis. METAL. The track "Fertile Green" is an instant metal classic and has been permanently added to my gym playlist.

    The Walkmen - Heaven. This is a new album from The Walkmen. No further explanation necessary.

    Perfume Genius - Put Your Back N 2 It. Maybe the biggest surprise of 2012 for me so far. This album knocked me out from the very beginning with the haunting piano sounds. And I've listened to the album straight through several times. Mike Hadreas is writing from a very specific place, but listen before deciding that you don't like music about his lifestyle.

    The Tallest Man on Earth - There's No Leaving Now. Listening to this for the first time as I type this. Sounds on-par with previous efforts. I hope I have an experience as profound as hearing The Wild Hunt for the first time.

    Trampled by Turtles - Stars and Satellites. No single song hits quite like Wait So Long kickstarted their last album, but this is solid throughout. The song "Alone" is an instant favorite.

    Best Coast - The Only Place. The perfect summer sound just in time for... Summer.

    Beach House - Bloom. This sounds more like Devotion than the previous album, which is a good thing. On heavy rotation in my truck through April and May.

    Santigold - Master of My Make-Believe. Not quite as good as the last album. Disparate Youth and The Keepers are great songs.
