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.

!!! at Sasquatch 2011 (more by Josh Darr)
As previously discussed, !!! will be in town for a show at Music Hall of Williamsburg on Thursday (12/13) with Sinkane (who will open for Solange next week) and Yellow Dogs. Tickets for the show are still available and we're also giving away a pair. Details on how to enter to win are below.
Meanwhile, !!! frontman Nic Offer recently spoke to us about his favorite albums and songs of the year. Like Nic's own music, the list skews mainly electronic and electronic-tinged pop, and he makes room for a few other interesting inclusions too. Nic is also now the second artist we've spoke to to include the various artists compilation, Personal Space: Electronic Soul 1974-1984. You can check out the whole list below.

Italian ambient duo Voices From The Lake (aka Donato Dozzy and Neel) released their self titled debut full length earlier this year. The album builds off looping, trancelike patterns, but differs from similarly loop-based music by relying more heavily on textures than hooks. Most tracks on the album fade into each other, obscuring when one ends and another starts. But it's not an album made for the song-skipping world anyway -- its 70+ minutes are meant to be listened to uninterrupted. So if you'd like to hear it that way, do yourself a favor and pick the album up somewhere (maybe Amazon). But in the meantime, you can stream some tracks from the album below.
Voices From The Lake will make their live North American debut in NYC at The Bunker at Public Assembly in Brooklyn tonight, Friday (7/6). That show also includes DJ sets from Donato Dozzy and Neel, in addition to sets from Omar-S and Bunker regulars Spinoza, Mike Servito, and Eric Cloutier. Tickets for that show are on sale now. The flier for this show is below, along with a list of all dates and those song streams.
