CFC Off Topic: Music Thread

Soccer is stupid and depressing right now, so let's take our minds off it by talking about something else.

Since you live in America and you like soccer, it's a fair bet you're also probably a hipster. And even if you're not, you probably listen to some good music. Except for Bryan A., who only recently discovered that there's more to music than the annual Jock Jamz mixtape.

But for the rest of you, let's hear about some of your contenders for Album of the Year now that 2012 is almost over. And maybe we can help Mr. A. grow and learn along the way. There may be hope for him yet.

In no particular order, here's some things I enjoyed!

Yeasayer - Fragrant World

Twin Shadow - Confess

Tame Impala - Lonerism

Purity Ring - Shrines

Cat Power - Sun

Frank Ocean - Channel Orange

Japandroids - Celebration Rock

Grizzly Bear - Shields

Chairlift - Something

How to Dress Well - Total Loss

Any glaring omissions from my top 10? Tell me what an idiot I am in the comments below, or just respectfully disagree and share your own favorites from the past year. Either way, it's better than talking about Saturday.

Before you write a FanPost: Lurk! Comment! Talk with your fellow members! If you've been here for more than a couple of days and you know what's up, write away!
