1. Tall Ships – “Vessels”
Definitely one of my favourite discoveries of 2012, and one I’m excited about seeing how they evolve in 2013. Every song sounds like standing on the edge of a cliff looking out over the epic vista of your life – and being scared and excited at the same time.
2. The Sunset Strip Club – “Einstein’s Theory”
Easy, guilty please, this bounds along with great guitar riffs and a banging bass line.
3. Vuvuvultures – “Stay Still”
Stupidly brilliant name, this is a great piece of rock music seasoned with electro disco. More complex than previous efforts, but then the less striking. And that riff 3 minutes in is almost Muse-esque!
4. Post War Years – “All Eyes”
This band are definitely up there with wine, chocolate, and sex. Amazing.
5. Charlie Dupre – “2012 Male”
Bit of impressive vocal wizardry from Charlie Dupre.
6. Mile Me Deaf – “Troubles Caught”
Superbly catchy seismic tunes
7. Fine Times – “Hey Judas”
Epic and grand, yearning and soaring, littered with peaks and valleys – and somehow it all comes from only two people.
8. Klak Tik – “Reborn”
Saw this trio supporting Slow Club, and I can totally see the link. Completely delightful, unapologetically simple pop songs. Timeless.
9. Thom Price-Stephens – “Peter Pan Shoes”
I’m a sucker for warm vocals and disarming honesty. Relationships in their gritty reality – uttered and unuttered words.
10. Secret Rivals – “Once More With Heart”
Ramshackle, chaotic, honest, soulful, and real. Gravelly emotions and gritty excitement, oscillating melodies, full of perpetuating energy.
