Trevor de Brauw @ Lincoln Hall in June (more by Zach Pollack)
Pelican // Chord guitarist Trevor de Brauw has told us his top 10 favorite things of 2012. As we near the end (of the year, NOT the world), Trevor delivers a list that includes albums, songs, live shows, and major life experiences. Check out his favorite things of 2012 after the jump, but first, a message from the man himself...
There was a fucking ton of good music this year and anyone who claims the contrary needs to stop being a cynic and get on the party train. I feel like almost every one of my favorite bands/musicians made new albums this year, many of which were career highlights. Additionally great new bands are popping up at a rate that's difficult for semi-old-timer's like myself to fathom. For this year's top ten I reluctantly decided it was unfair to include clients from my PR career (difficult because I did press for so many great records, including, but not limited to, OM, Zammuto, OFF!, Codeine, William Basinski, Mono, Hundred Waters, EL-P, etc) - in part because they have the unfair advantage of me automatically obsessing over their albums, but also because it feels weird ranking them against one another. Fuck it, they're all great. But as for things I have less difficulty ranking, here's a small sample of my 2012 obsessions:
Canadian punk outfit Propagandhi are set to welcome their sixth studio album, Failed States, on September 4 via Epitaph. That's its cover art above and you can stream its title track at the bottom of this post. Preorder the LP in a variety of formats/bundles.
The group will support Failed States with a North American tour, which kicks off in Canada in late-September. One of the final dates of that run is a November 6 show at the Bottom Lounge with support from The Menzingers. Advance tickets are on sale now.
All Propagandhi tour dates and a stream of "Failed States" are below...
