LIST: In My Ears In 2012

We are a bit late with our “best of 2012” so we won’t do one now.  In lieu of a well-thought out list I decided to give myself 60 seconds to jot down names of bands/artists who released something in 2012 that I really enjoyed.  The following list of artists provided a soundtrack for my year and their work really became a part of me.  As it happens  with music, memories were formed around these lovely sounds so this list isn’t ranked – because really, how can one rank memories?
