UK music magazine Uncut put out their list of the top 75 albums of 2012. The top ten leans pretty heavy on long-running '60s/'70s survivors who put out new albums this year, but plenty of the list-topping regulars from newer acts are on there too, along with a few interesting surprises (Sun Araw, M Geddes Gengras & the Congos!). You can check out the full list below.

Jack White

In addition to the Fleetwood Mac cover story (and Rumours cover CD that comes with it), the new issue of MOJO is the 2012 Year-End wrap-up with the best albums list which is topped by Jack White's Blunderbuss. Their list is definitely different than most, but also in line with the mag that puts the Beatles on the cover at least once a year. You can check out MOJO's Top 20 below.

The B-52s

As mentioned, Squeeze have some upcoming dates in April with The English Beat which include Bergen Performing Arts Center (4/23) in Englewood, NJ (tickets), Roseland Ballroom (4/28) in NYC (tickets), and they've since added another NJ show happening on 4/25 at Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank (tickets).

The English Beat, who as Bill pointed out last year, is really just Dave Wakeling plus other people, has a number of other dates leading up to the Squeeze shows. Those dates include a show at Maxwell's on April 2. Tickets are on sale now.

After the English Beat shows, Squeeze will be hooking up with the B-52s in June and July as part of the B-52s' 35th anniversary tour. Those shows include Morristown, NJ (7/10), Atlantic City, NJ (7/13), Canandaigua, NY (7/14), and Westbury, NY (7/15). All dates and venues are listed below. The B-52s also play their own show at Bergen Performing Arts Center in Englewood, NJ on 8/8.

In other new wave news, Dexys Midnight Runners (the UK version of The Beat includes a former Dexys member), who originally reunited in 2003, are set to release their first album since 1985's Don't Stand Me Down. The new album (which is being released under the name Dexys) is called One Day I'm Going To Soar. Check out the single, "Nowhere Is Home," and a recent BBC interview/feature, below. The Dexys already have shows scheduled in Europe. "The performances will be made up of the entire new album {One Day Im Going To Soar}, in sequence, followed by a few Dexys favourites."
