2012, for me, hasn’t been a great year for album releases. With Laura Marling, Anna Calvi, and various other favourites of mine set to release soon, 2013 looks set to be a more fertile year for quality records. Nevertheless, I have put together my top 10 albums for 2012. See what you think…

1 – Grizzly Bear – Shields (Warp; September 17)

2 – Alt-J – An Awesome Wave (Infectious; May 28)

3 – Beach House – Bloom (Sub Pop; May 15)

4 – Patti Smith – Banga (Columbia; June 1)

5 – Woods – Bend Beyond (Woodsist; September 18)

6 – Lotus Plaza – Spooky Action at a Distance (Kranky; April 2)

7 – Liars – WIXIW (Mute; June 4)

8 – Grimes – Visions (Arbutus; January 31)

9 – Dirty Projectors – Swing Lo Magellan (Domino; July 10)

10 – First Aid Kit – The Lion’s Roar (Wichita; released 23 January)
