The Best of 2012, Part 3, The Playlist
Ho-ly smokes, what a year for music. This will forever be the year that the definition of “indie” finally melted, R&B shook back to a life of artistic relevance, issues of sexuality became a part of the discussion in a new way, and several young artists made brilliant, statement-of-purpose records. I’ve compiled my 64 favorite tracks (up a bit from last year’s 36, but hey, there were a LOT of good songs this year). Check it out below.
