Best Songs of 2012

Flamingos

A record-breaking year. No, I haven’t expanded the list to more than 200 songs, but I’ve actually managed to finish and publish it before February. Epic organisation. Is it varied? Is it obscure? Is it full of loud distorted guitars, people who really shouldn’t sing, screeching electronic noises and amazingly good music? Why, yes of course. Enjoy!
