2012 was a good year in regards of discovering new and exiting music. I had the best Roskilde Festival expirience to date this year, both musically and just in having a really great time. IT WAS FUN!
On an emotional level my year has been a roller-coaster and music has helped me through many of the darkest hours. That might explain why many of my favourite albums this year are dark, melancholic, yearning and bitter-sweet.
I’m about to list those that made albums this year that I’m not getting tired of, regardless of how many times I’ve listened to them. Albums I’ve returned to ever so often, albums that suddenly wants to be heard again, albums that were so good that they will not be forgotten!!! (At least not yet)
So without any further due here they are, without any one favoured over the other, and I will not explain why in endless rants, I think I will let the music speak in this post:
Alcest – ’Les voyages de l’âme’
Released: January 2012
Might actually be my favourite album of the year, if I had to choose…

Locrian – The Clearing/The Final Epoch

This album made the biggest impact on me this year. It still brings a smile on my lips, how I tried to explain the greatness of this album to my mother, she must have thought I was crazy!
