Best Madison Records of 2012

Postby Scott Gordon » Tue Oct 30, 2012 3:10 pm

Hello all, I'm one of Isthmus' music contributors. About a month from now, I'll be writing up a list of my favorite Madison-made albums and EPs from good ol' calendar year 2012.

Now, I'm not telling you this just so you can start working early on those angry best-of-list-time Internet comments. I want to hear from you, in the interests of keeping this open, diverse, and as fair as it can possibly be given my infernal opinionated stubbornness.

So tell me: What Madison-made records have stuck with you the most this year? What do you think has been unfairly overlooked? What local bands/artists do you think have improved or surprised this year?

And if you've made something you think I should hear, feel free to Sendspace/Dropbox a .zip of .mp3s to scottgwrites@gmail.com.

I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts!

Caustic, "The Man Who Couldn't Stop" (epic)
Golden Donna (self-titled LP)
Anna Vogelzang, "Canary in a Coalmine" (beautiful)

Didn't know about this one but just downloaded it. Love the addition of horns to his sound.

Count This Penny, Pitchman is fantastic.

I feel like I'm forgetting something but I haven't heard any of the other releases mentioned thus far.

I really enjoy Scott and Mike's Hammond Organ Nite and somehow completely missed that they put a CD out. Thanks for mentioning it, I'll track it down.
