Headphone Commute’s Best of 2012 : Music For Synergizing The Synapse Of Ideas

Just like last year, and the two years before, somehow I managed to torture myself with a great restraint of releasing these “Best Of” lists at a rate of only one per day. And today I even managed to find the time to squeeze out a two-hour podcast! Honestly, I’m a little exhausted. I hope your wallet feels exhausted too! Believe me, there’s nothing more I want, than to share all of this music with you! Especially this particular selection of albums that falls into one of my favorite categories! This is the music that excites every neuron, challenges the ordinary world, and triggers yet another thought. Dark, beautiful, cinematic, glitchy, quirky – these are adjectives that fail to describe the sound once again. How futile are these words, and how beautiful the music! Enjoy!!!
