Blue Hawaii @ CMJ 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Montreal resident Raphaelle Standell-Preston fronts both Braids and Blue Hawaii, but the bands are separate entities with their own musical personalities. Both groups like Mac Demarco, Burial, Majical Cloudz and Born Gold, though, which show up on each group's Top 10 of 2012 list which we have for you here in this post. Like the bands themselves, BRAIDS's list is a little more band-oriented and Blue Hawaii skews more electronic. (Guess which one has Grimes on it?) Both lists are below.
Look out for Blue Hawaii's sophomore album, Untogether (definitely one of my favorite 2013 LPs that I've managed to hear already - Bill), via Arbutus Records on January 22. Braids will have a new album next year too. Both were here for CMJ.
Braids and Blue Hawaii's respective 2012 Top 10 lists are below.
Bowery Ballroom (more by Tracy Allison)
If a show is happening at NYC's famous Bowery Ballroom, it was booked by Bowery Presents talent buyer Johnny Beach (who started at the company booking Mercury Lounge). Johnny also keeps busy by co-booking Webster Hall, Terminal 5, Union Transfer in Philly, and other Bowery Presents-affiliated venues. The man books shows all day and is literally at one or more almost every single night. He told us what albums he listened to the most in 2012. Check out his list, and some related videos, below...

SPIN have revealed their list of the top 50 albums of 2012. It continues SPIN's trend of giving love to crossover punk and metal (which they've been pretty consistent with since naming Fucked Up's David Comes to Life their top album of 2011) with the inclusion of Baroness, Torche, Pallbearer, Cloud Nothings, and Japandroids, but rather surprisingly excludes the SPIN Essential'd Ceremony - Zoo and The Men - Open Your Heart, in favor of popular blowouts by Taylor Swift, fun., and Nicki Minaj. The list also shares its #1 and #2 with the two highest Pitchfork-rated albums of the year. And no Grimes.
The list begins with the Kanye-cribbed disclaimer, "Most critics' taste levels ain't at our waist level. Ain't nobody fucking with our clique." Check out SPIN's Top 50 LPs of 2012 list below.
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.

The Amazing at Metro in Chicago, 11/13/12 (more by James Richards VI)
Sweden's The Amazing just wrapped up their tour with Tame Impala and have already made plans to head back to North America. The band will be playing the Tomorrow Never Knows festival in Chicago in January and will stop in NYC on the way there for a show at Mercury Lounge on January 25. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday, December 7 at noon with an AmEx presale starting Wednesday (12/5) at noon.. No other North American dates have been announced yet, but seems like a long way to travel just for two shows.
Meanwhile, Tame Impala, whose new album Lonerism topped NME's Albums of 2012 list, will be back in NYC on February 19 for a show at Terminal 5 and tickets for that show go on sale today (11/30) at noon.
And in related news, Norwegian band Young Dreams, who have toured Europe with Tame Impala, have done a pretty incredible cover of Tame Impala's "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" which they have subtly renamed "Feels Like We Only Go Bachwards" which nods to both Johan Sebastian Bach and maybe Burt Bacharach, but sounds more like Brian Wilson is the big influence. You can stream it below and it will be released as a b-side to Tame Impala's original as a single next month.
Craig Finn w/ The Hold Steady in NYC in 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Listen to the references he makes in his lyrics or read an interview with him and you know that Craig Finn (of The Hold Steady) has a wide range of taste, and that isn't lost on his list of the top ten records of 2012, which bounces from underground rapper El-P to folk legend Bill Fay to non-stop rockers Japandroids. Of the list, Craig says, "A lot of my friends made really great records this year. To keep myself sane, I've created a list of my top ten records by people I don't know personally. Compiled quickly, probably with some ommisions." You can check the whole thing out below.
Craig will be taking part of the Soundtrack Series in NYC at Le Poisson Rouge this Friday (11/30) along with Cynthia Kaplan, Jenny Rubin, Daniel Ralston, Steve Zimmer, and host Dana Rossi. The event description reads, "Five artists-writers, comics, actors and musicians-tell the stories they forever connect with songs from their past. There's the song, the story behind the song, and the story inspired by the song. We're the third one." Craig will be doing his on "I Will Dare" by the Replacements. Tickets for that are on sale now.
Meanwhile watch Craig on the Chris Gethard show TONIGHT (11/28).
As mentioned, The Hold Steady will play Wellmont Theatre on New Year's Eve with Lucero. Since we last spoke, comedian Kurt Braunohler has been added to that bill as well. Tickets for the show are still available.
Craig Finn's top 10 albums of 2012 list is below...

Long-running UK music weekly NME has just published their Year-End issue and have named Tame Impala's Lonerism as album of the year, with Grimes, Frank Ocean, Crystal Castles and Alt-J rounding out the Top 5. Tame Impala offshoot Pond comes in at #7. Check out the entire Top 50 list below.
NME's Top 50 LPs of 2012 are listed below.
The Fly is the "UK's most popular new music magazine," but if you haven't heard of it, its because it's a free monthly that doesn't really get international distribution. You can however read it online. The mag just released it's year-end issue and topping their Best Albums of 2012 is Sharon Van Etten's Tramp (which was just released in a Deluxe edition, a fine Xmas gift don't you know). Sharon narrowly beat out Grimes, whose Visions came in at #2. The whole list, in ascending order, is below and you can read what The Fly said about each album here.
A list of the Fly's Top 50 Albums of 2012 is below.
Jack White @ Radio City Music Hall, 9/30/2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
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.
Tame Impala at MHOW in August (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Australian psych rockers Tame Impala released their new album, Lonerism, earlier this year and have been touring in support of it. Earlier this month, they came to NYC for sold out shows at Music Hall of Williamsburg and Webster Hall, and now they plan to make the expected jump to headlining Terminal 5 on February 19. Tickets for what will be their largest NYC show yet go on sale Friday (11/30) at noon.
The show will be part of a 2013 North American tour for the band which has
not been announced in full yet... UPDATE: Full tour has been announced and all dates are listed below.

Tame Impala @ MHOW, 11/7/2012 (via @jacobbetesh)
Tame Impala played Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (11/9), a sold-out show as part of their tour with The Amazing (who played Mercury Lounge last week). The pair will do it again on Saturday night (11/10) at Webster Hall which is also sold out. Did you go to the show? How was it?
In other Tame Impala news, the band just released a video for new single "Feels Like We Only Go Backwards" from their album Lonerism. Directors Joe Pelling and Becky Sloan's head trip (literally) vision for the clip is old-school hand animated, looking like something from vintage '70s Sesame Street. Still it's hard for this to beat PS22 Chorus' take on the same song. Videos of both are below.

Metallica / Sigur Ros at Outside Lands - 8/11/12
Metallica's headlining set on Saturday featured lots of the band's classic material ("Master of Puppets," "Ride the Lightning," "Creeping Death") paired with a fair amount of pyro and endless shout-outs to San Francisco. "We're very grateful to be playing in the backyard of the greatest city," said frontman James Hetfield. He also noted that a friend of his who lives a good distance from the park told him earlier that he could hear the band soundcheck all the way from his house. "So we're not only playing for you," said Hetfield. "We're playing for all of the Bay Area." [Rolling Stone]The 2012 Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival continued on Saturday (8/11) in San Francisco after kicking off a day earlier (8/10). Saturday's portion of the festival gave us a headlining set by Metallica, who, unfortunately for Jonsi, Sigur Ros was playing their set at the same time on a different stage. Saturday also saw sets by The Kills, Explosions in the Sky, Tame Impala, Alabama Shakes, and more.
Pictures of day 1 are HERE. More of day 2 are below.

Having previously fronted the more overtly pop My Bee's Garden and The Narcoleptic Dancers, Melody Prochet discovered dreampop, enlisted the help of Tame Impala's Kevin Parker (a busy man this year) to capture the sounds in her head, and Melody's Echo Chamber was born. Recorded at Parker's home studio in Perth, Australia, and at Melody's grandparents' seaside home in the South of France, the self titled album -- out September 25 via Fat Possum -- is a gorgeous headtrip. You can stream a couple cuts from it below.
I met Melody on a very rainy late July afternoon to talk about the new album, finding her sound and how she's going pull it off live. On the latter, NYC will find out in October when Melody's Echo Chamber open for The Raveonettes at Webster Hall.
BV: You had a couple bands before this, very different sound. What made the change?
Melody Prochet: I just grew up, really. I've always been writing songs, and the people you meet they influence you. It wasn't till I was 19 that I heard the kind of music I listen to now, so for many years it was a different style. I hadn't digested all these new things.
Was there a certain record or group you heard where you were like, "Yes! This is the kind of music I want to make!"?
A million different records. I'm a fan of so much stuff I wouldn't know where to start. I was listening to Debussy at the same time I was listening to Spiritualized or Red Krayola, so it came from all over.
How did you end up working with Kevin from Tame Impala?
Two years ago my old band My Bee's Garden supported Tame Impala in Europe. We got along and we shared a lot of songs and it just blossomed into collaboration. It started with just a couple songs but it was really easy to work together. Complimentary opposites.
You say it was easy, but as a listener it sounds very dense and layered, like a lot of work.
I wasn't hard to make, it was very organic and natural. Most of what you hear are first takes and we did the drum sounds in two seconds. We put mikes on a pile of bricks in the yard because we didn't have professional setups. It was a very natural process, making the record. But I know what you mean, the production is really cool. I'm obsessed with production, though I'm not really good at it yet myself. I have the vision, but I need magic hands to do it for me. This record was my dream sound. I've tried for years to get it but finally found the right hands to sculpt it.
Did you come in with songs or was it more born out of the studio?
I came in with songs and some basic recordings but it was messy. Kevin helped figure out what we could keep, how to organize that mess. I tend to write pretty and dreamy songs -- I studied classical music for 12 years -- but I was boring myself so Kevin helped destroy everything and put it back together, find the right balance. I think we did pretty well in that way.
Have you played it live?
We've done two shows. The first one was intense because we didn't get a chance to soundcheck, but it was all right. The second show was supporting Atlas Sound and it went so well. I think it was my first show every I enjoyed, felt like it was good enough, and felt comfortable.
Has it been hard to replicate the album's sound live?
Kevin helped with that as well, putting the album's sounds -- the Junos and all the gear you can't take with you on tour because it's gonna break -- so we just sampled all the sounds and put it on a keyboard. I think its gonna sound really good.
Tame Impala at MHOW last week (more by Amanda Hatfield)
Australian psychedelic rock revivalists Tame Impala, who were just in North America for Lollapalooza and a packed NYC show at Music Hall of Williamsburg, will return on what will
presumably be a larger tour in the fall with The Amazing. A full tour announcement hasn't come yet, but the band will be in NYC for shows on November 7 at Music Hall of Williamsburg and November 10 at Webster Hall. Tickets for those shows go on sale Friday (8/17) at noon.
UPDATE: The full tour has been announced. All dates are listed below.
Tame Impala's new album, Lonerism, is due out October 5 via Modular. If you haven't yet, you can listen to two of its tracks, "Elephant" and "Apocalypse Dreams," below. Also if you missed it, their justice-doing cover of Fleetwood Mac's "That's All For Everyone" from the tribute album, Just Tell Me That You Want Me (out this week), can be streamed below as well.
Swedish collective The Amazing, who share members with Dungen and are opening the new North American dates, release their U.S. debut Gentle Stream via Partisan Records on October 23rd. We caught them live earlier this year in Norway.

Tame Impala at Music Hall of Williamsburg - 8/7/12
Australia's Tame Impala are in North America for a few festivals including Lollapalooza (pics HERE) and Osheaga (pics coming soon), which they played over the weekend, and Outside Lands, which they'll play this weekend. While here, they stopped in NYC for an intimate show at Music Hall of Williamsburg last night (8/7) with Young Magic. The show sold out immediately and it was packed. The band will have their new album, Lonerism, out this October which will presumably bring the band back to North America for a full tour hitting much larger venues than Music Hall of Williamsburg.
More pictures and a video of Tame Impala playing "Runway, Houses, City Clouds" from the MHOW show are below.

Black Sabbath / M83 / the crowd, Lollapalooza 8/03/2012
A bell tolls, a bass guitar moans, and Ozzy Osbourne sings. "What is this that stands before me?" the former archnemesis of John Cardinal O'Connor intones with chilling deliberation. Black Sabbath - three-quarters of them, anyway - are back to reprise the doom-ridden, Beelzebub-baiting classics from the '70s. Osbourne sounds in good voice initially, slicing through Tony Iommi's granite-hard guitar riffs and Geezer Butler's nuclear-strength bass. He even lays down some credible blues harp on "Wizard." But, as if to prove he isn't lip-synching, Osbourne struggles to nail some of the high notes in "War Pigs." No matter, Sabbath was never about sex appeal or perfection. They were dead-end working-class kids who had no use for the romanticism of the flower-power era, and instead peered into the abyss that awaits us all. The songs, which just happened to invent an entire genre of music, still sound magnificent, from "N.I.B." to "Iron Man." [Chicago Tribune]Lollapalooza, the mother of indie U.S. festivals, is happening this weekend at Grant Park in Chicago. Friday (8/3) kicked things off with such bands Black Sabbath, Afghan Whigs, Passion Pit, The War on Drugs, Tame Impala, Metric, and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. If you're not in Chicago but would still like to have the Lollapalooza experience, just skip showering, turn off your A/C, crack open a beverage and watch the festival's livestream on YouTube.
More Lollapalooza Friday pics are below.
As we mentioned previously, Australia's Tame Impala are visiting this side of the globe for a few festival dates, including Lollapalooza, Osheaga and Outside Lands. While in North America, the band will play a just-added NYC show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 7. Tickets go on sale Friday, August 3 at noon.
If you haven't checked out Tame Impala's new single, "Elephant," you can stream it below. Their new album, Lonerism, is out October 5.
Also below: a new video from Tame Impala side project Pond.
Tame Impala's new album, Lonerism, is due out in October. The Australian psych-rockers will release the album's first official single in August, a glammy stomper called "Elephant" which you can stream below. The cover art is above. Remixes will soon be available by Canyons and Todd Rundgren (!).
Tame Impala will be in North America soon for a few U.S. festivals, including Lollapalooza in Chicago, Osheaga in Montreal and Outside Lands in San Francisco. (Sorry NYC!) All upcoming tour dates are listed below, along with the "Elephant" stream and Lonerism cover art and tracklist.
