IGIF’s Songs of 2012

2012 songs

This year was much more of a songs year for us… probably having more to do with our listening habits than any lack of noteworthy albums (there are plenty) or any ominous “death of the album” that’s been prophesied for at least a half decade now. Nope… We’re just a songs blog, by and large. We listen almost exclusively to songs from new bands we’re considering writing about. So hopefully this list will open your ears to some great songs you may have missed and reinforce the awesomeness of the ones you already know and love:
