Katy Perry, Pink, and Philip Phillips. Good thing you rely on your vision rather than your hearing to make a living.

Sounds like the stuff The Last Shadow Puppets were doing 3 or 4 years ago mixed with Fitz and The Tantrums.

I'll take back anything I might have said about this being maybe a light year. Album-wise, for sure, there isn't anything that scored a 9-plus or even a good stable of 8-pluses. Singles-wise, it's easy to get discouraged wading through thousands of samey singles. Ugh, what an awful mass of dreck there is out there. It was a different story for me though when I started drilling down to my favorites. Taken by themselves, away from the huge noise-to-signal that is indie music now, it's not a bad bunch. I couldn't even get down to my usual 20-song mix.

Here's the 2012 Mix I'd make at this minute, in mix order rather than rank order:

Lost In The Trees - Golden Eyelids - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9MoKKuvrvo
The Joy Formidable - This Ladder Is Ours - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_t4s-HX3z0

Letting Up Despite Great Faults - Postcard - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K-8FfrmuzZQ
Savages - Husbands - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6y-cVzbBBQ8
Holograms - ABC City - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KOrRmH4azlk
Shrag - Show Us Your Canines - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6BzbpWga4c
Mission Of Burma - Semi-Pseudo-Sort-Of Plan - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VGV_CigT4M4
British Sea Power - Facts Not Right - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mrdGT8KD12Q

The Tontons - Golden - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OpV3_E-nHcM
La Shark - Mr Modern Man - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Pn0GugynfM
Hands & Teeth - Hunting Season - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NutPqQtE5cI
