Year End Part II: The Best of 2012

I have some misgivings about publishing year end lists. But I do find that I gather great suggestions from other peoples lists. There is simply too much great music being made and never enough time to research it all. So with that, I hope that I may introduce some new work to others from my past years collection. 

I think I have finally narrowed my “Best Of” to 15. 
Strangely there was no stand out release this year. Plenty of incredible work, but nothing that seemed to deserve a special place at the top apart from the others. So the following are in no particular order.
