Top 28 Of 2012

I was going to wait until the next episode came out to release this, but here it is anyway.

It’s no small statement that I make when I say that 2012 was a truly impeccable year for music. The independent spirit is making a large stretch into the mainstream media. The DIY bands are demonstrating long strides and making headway into the cultural congregation of the “hip”. Just as the fray and fringe, just outside the peripheral of that same cultural eye, becomes new territory to conquer and exploit. And that’s not a bad thing.

With that being said, in this years list I did away with the big names. The Bruce Springsteen’s and the Jack White’s of the music industry don’t belong on this list. They have their names in the proper spotlights of Rolling Stone and Spin magazines.

This list is The Americana Rock Mix’s representation of the aforementioned fringe and fray. The bands that caught my ear and kept tugging on my earlobes throughout 2012.

I had set a few guidelines for myself:

1. No “Greatest Hits” or “Collections”.
2. No “Live Albums” (as they typically become one of the above).
3. Must be a minimum of 7 songs OR 30 Minutes long. Just to keep it fair with the full length albums (typically 10 songs or 45+ minutes).

#3 put me in a hard position that I tried to tackle in Episode 168. If you enjoy the episodes where I drive myself crazy, give it a listen.

Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to it. Listed in alphabetical order.


Alabama Shakes – “Boys And Girls
American Aquarium – “Burn.Flicker.Die
Arliss Nancy – “Simple Machines”
Big Kettle Drum – “Big Kettle Drum
The Bohannons – “Unaka Rising
Branden Barnett – “Verse Chorus Curse
Cobalt & The Hired Guns – “Everybody Wins
Cory Branan – “Mutt
The Creak – “Here, Hold This
The Damn Choir – “You’re My Secret Called Fire
Deathbarrel – “Merciless Winds
The District Attorneys – “Slowburner
Doc Dailey & The Magnolia Devil – “Catch The Presidents
Eastbound Jesus – “Holy Smokes
Fistful Of Beard – “Until We Know Better
The Harmed Brothers – “Come Morning
Justin Townes Earle – “Nothing’s Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now
Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires – “There Is A Bomb In Gilead
Lincoln Durham – “The Shovel VS. The Howling Bones
Micheal Dean Damron – “Nah Mr. Death… I’ma Comin’ For You
The Pollies – “Where The Lies Begin
The Porter Draw – “California Widow
Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band – “Between The Ditches
Rosie Flores – “Working Girl’s Guitar
Some Dark Holler – “Hollow Chest
Sunday Valley – “To The Wind and On to Heaven
Tin Horn Prayer – “Grapple The Rails
