  1. Sam Billen

  2. First Aid Kit

  3. Django Django and Alt-J were my favorite discoveries of last year.

  4. Cold Specks (opened for Great Lake Swimmers)

  5. Nicolas Jaar

  6. Alt-J has been my favorite new band

  7. The Beatles

  8. Father John Misty, hands down obsessed. (I’d already have tickets to the show if The Walkmen were opening instead…)

  9. Wild Flag. These girls can seriously rock. I heard their album, then saw them live at the Metro in Chicago! What a show! I felt like they were snake charmers and I was a snake dancing to their awesome guitar riffs. If you haven’t seen them, you are making a big mistake.

  10. Macklemore & Lewis

  11. gary clark jr at summerfest 2012 was my suprise of the summer…

  12. First Aid Kit has been doing it for me lately.

  13. There was so much great new music last year. Besides Father John Misty – Purity Ring’s first album, Alt-J, Jake Bugg (the kid is 18… blows my mind), and most of all this band Chvrches…

  14. I’m going to go with the post-hardcore outfit Being as an Ocean. Their debut Dear G-d last year was a surprise stand out for me.

  15. Field Report by a nose over Jake Bugg, Alt-J, and Goat. Jessie Ware was pretty badass, too.

  16. Chance the Rapper and Kids These Days: AWESOME.

  17. Frank Turner. I don’t know if a new musical discovery can be someone who has played over 1300 shows and has already released what is essentially a greatest hits album, but he is new to me. Wish I would have discovered him earlier, but it didn’t help that out of the 120 cities he’s played in the USA over the past few years, Madison, WI wasn’t one of them.

  18. Father John Misty, Kendrick Lamar, and Japandroids

  19. My favorite find of last year was the new music brought to me by Sam Verdecchia to support his material, recording and gigging…it’s amazing..

  20. Just started listening to Lord Huron and Young man. Both are excellent

  21. Alt-J and First Aid Kit have been on the top of my list as of late. Although their voices are totally opposite from one another, they are both sooo much fun to sing along to!

  22. City and Colour!! Dallas Green rocks.

  23. OMG, Bes Monde and Cowboy Winter are two local bands that have really impressed this household of late. We look forward to seeing the rest get on board with these gettin-tighter-by-the-minute groups!!

  24. Though not Walkmanesque, Grimes and her album Visions was my personal best of 2012.

  25. Honestly, Father John Misty has been my favorite musical discovery for quite some time. I was first exposed to his music when I shadowed my favorite on-air personality at WSUM earlier in the fall. In fact, I vividly remember Justin Barney, the host of Hi-Fi in Low-Res, delivering his broadcast and stating, “This next song starts out with some of my favorite lyrics of all time: ‘Pour me another drink, punch me in the face, you can call me Nancy” as the euphonious sounds of “Nancy From Now On” filled the studio speakers. To say that I was blown away by Father John Misty would be an understatement. Now, many months later, many listens to the “Fear Fun” album later, and an addiction to his May 2012 KEXP performance, I can’t stop listening to this incredible musician. His brilliant style of songwriting gives me hope that there are still quality artists producing quality music these days.

  26. So many awesome responses. Thanks, all! It’s cool to hear about what everyone is into.

    We wish we could give away tickets to everyone, but there can only be one winner — congrats, Jake!
