PDX BioLogic's top 10 LPs for 2012
not in any order - but stuff released in 2012 that I played on The Soundbox. This doesn't count reissues, singles, or other old mixes that I unearthed in 2012. It would take a long time to rank pre-2012 music that I played a LOT in 2012.....that is a list unto itself.
So .... here are my favorite 2012 album releases that stayed in my Soundbox playlist, in my headphones, in my house speakers, in my car. Again, NOT IN ORDER.
- Channel Orange - Frank Ocean
- Vodka & Ayahuasca - Gangrene
- Russian Roulette - The Alchemist
- Ohnomite - Oh No
- Bite Marked Heart (ep) - Brother Ali <it moved me enough that I listed his ep over his lp he released this year>
- Good Kid M.A.A.D. City - Kendrick Lemar
- Key To The Kuffs - JJ DOOM
- R.A.P. Music - Killer Mike
- awE naturalE - Thee Satisfaction
- The Heist - Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
* XXX - Danny Brown (This was released late 2011 - but I didn't get the vinyl until 2012, and I've been playing the hell out of it all year)
*Life Is Good - Nas (amazing work by a veteran favorite of mine. Almost unfair to give a top 10 spot to Nas. He's a given with me. So i chose to make room for Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.)
