Best of 2012

Best of 2012

Well, well, well… Another year has gone by… And I can only celebrate it one way – with music. Be sure to read my reflections in this Year In Review article. As far as the lists go, by now you should know the drill… I’m sticking to my format of the past three years and revealing a new thematic list of selections per day. Since I can’t possibly rank my favorite IDM next to ambient albums, you won’t find any genres inside. Instead I make a playlist on the mood created by the sounds. There are 15 lists this year, which makes it a total of 150 favorite albums of 2012! Enjoy!

Music For The Film Behind Closed Eyelids
Music For Bending Light And Stopping Time
Music For Awakened Spirits And Open Minds
Music For Crawling Through Abandoned Cities
Music For Withered Leaves And Lonely Fishtanks
Music For Long Car Rides With My Family & Friends
Music For Walking And Not Crying In The Autumn Rain
Music For The Frosty Night When I Miss Your Warm Light
Music For Watching The Snow Slowly Fall In The Moonlight
Music For Sonic Installations In The Cavern Of Your Skull
Music For Missed Friends, Barbecues And Turntables
Music For Vibrating Your Neighbors’ Dusty China
Music For Synergizing The Synapse Of Ideas
Music For Capricious Souls Adrift In Noir-fi
Music For Grinding Your Teeth At Night
