As with last year, I don't claim to have any authority when it comes to what is 'best,' all I can offer are the things that have deeply moved me, and I feel others would be amiss to lose out on. There are of course many many albums that I wanted to include here, and I'm sure even more that I missed out on completely, but I hope this will at least give you a taste of what my corner of this musical universe has been like this past year.

A couple of Honorable Mentions include:

The Green Kingdom - Egress (Nomadic Kids Republic)
- elegant, flowing album of incredible beauty. best listened to from end-to-end - preferably on repeat

Scissors & Sellotape - For The Tired And Ill At Ease (Facture / Fluid Audio)
- incredible, amazing, immaculate album that was released on 12/25/2011.. a little too late for last year and a little too early for this year.

Villages - Theories Of Aging (Bathetic)
- completely blown away by the quality of this album, hugely hugely recommended

Albums Included:
Orcas - Orcas (Morr Music)
The Boats - Ballads Of The Darkroom (Our Small Ideas)
From The Mouth Of The Sun - Woven Tide (Experimedia)
