A Few Albums That Definitely Didn’t Make Pitchfork’s Top 50 of 2012

Pitchfork Honorable Mentions

Pitchfork just posted their Honorable Mention Albums of 2012, which they consider “20 records didn’t make [their] Top 50 but they’re not necessarily just Nos. 51-70.” There are some similarities to their Overlooked Records of 2012 list that they posted halfway through the year. It also includes Frankie Rose‘s Interstellar, which did actually get Best New Music upon its release, unlike the other albums here. And it’s got Waxahatchee‘s American Weekend and Jeremih‘s Late Nights with Jeremih, neither of which were reviewed throughout the year. Though they did review Waxhatachee (Katie Crutchfield)’s sister Allison’s band Swearin’, who also makes this list, and who (along with Jeremih) made Pitchfork’s Top 100 Tracks list.

Full list below…
