2012 Music

I’m not going to post my ‘most listened to music’ list like I did last year. For a variety of reasons my music wasn't syncing to my Last.fm profile for the entire year so the data isn't accurate. That said, here are some great artists that I hadn't listened to all that much (or at all) in the past that I listened to quite a bit last year.

  • The Lumineers
  • The Shins
  • Iron & Wine
  • Hayes Carll
  • Angels & Airwaves
  • Townes Van Zandt
  • The Felice Brothers
  • Whiskeytown
  • Beach House
  • My Morning Jacket
  • Band of Heathens

I also discovered a genre called post rock. It’s very relaxing and great to listen to while you work. Some of the bands I like include The Six Parts Seven, This Will Destroy You and Marconi Union. Check out this somewhat depressing but very inspiring video that recaps the events of 2012 -- the soundtrack playing in the background is a great song by This Will Destroy You.

I also listened to a lot more of the stuff I listened to in past years, including:

  • Ryan Bingham
  • Steve Earle
  • Radiohead
  • Mumford & Sons
  • Micky & the Motorcars
  • Reckless Kelly
  • Bon Iver
  • James McMurtry
  • Bob Dylan
  • Uncle Tupelo
  • The Avett Brothers

Some new, some old -- 2012 was a good year for music.
