Sound As Language

Will. Columbia, SC. I listen to music for a living, co-run a label called Tiny Engines and do press work for bands & labels via Beartrap PR. I used to run a music blog called Sound As Language. This is where my music thoughts will reside for now.

(My list was actually posted yesterday on Property of Zack along with a ton other Tiny Engines/Beartrap lists, go check it out here.)

Albums of the year 2012 (1-10)

…And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead Lost Songs (Superball) - Hard to believe this is Trail of Dead’s 8th album but the band remains as ferocious as ever.
Annabel Youth In Youth (Count Your Lucky Stars) - Criminally underrated.
Everyone Everywhere Self-Titled 2012 (Self-Released) - Pretentious indie/emo rock never sounded so good.
forgetters Self-Titled (Too Small To Fail) - Schwarzenbach. Enough said.
Japandroids Celebration Rock (Polyvinyl) - My go to running soundtrack.
The Jealous Sound A Gentle Reminder (Rise) - Hopefully the band’s recent signing to Rise finally gets them their just due. And go listen to Knapsack while you’re at it too.
Luther Let’s Get You Somewhere Else (Chunksaah) - I worked press for the band’s first EP but wasn’t expecting a debut album this good.
The Menzingers On The Impossible Past (Epitaph) - A punk band that deserves to be huge.
Nada Surf The Stars Are Indifferent To Astronomy (Barsuk) - Nada Surf are just so consistent, they are one of those comforting bands that I always find myself going back to again and again.
Sundials When I Couldn’t Breathe (Asian Man) - I had kind of forgotten about Sundials so this album came out of nowhere in a great way.
