‘The Fly’ magazine’s Top 50 LPs of 2012 (Sharon Van Etten #1)


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.

By the way you can still get tickets for the December 15 show at Cameo that Sharon curated with She Keeps Bees and Speck Mountain and “Special Guest.”

A list of the Fly’s Top 50 Albums of 2012 is below.
