I actually heard a lot of new music that I liked this year, but these are the ones that will likely be in my rotation for a while into the future...
1. Beach House - Bloom
2. The Walkmen - Heaven
3. Beth Orton - Sugaring Season
4. JD McPherson - Signs & Signifiers
5. Jamey Johnson - Living For A Song
Just heard a JD McPherson track on daytrotter.com's best tracks of 2012. Very cool!
