The best albums of 2012 so far

Hey everybody, just wanted to welcome you back to Speed Glue and Music. It's been a bit of time, but in that time I have been digesting music left and right and so far for 2012 this is what tasted the best. It's a nice mix of the wacked out to the calmly serene, the difficult to pleasant, the pillows and rocks. I hope you all like what I put on here. I am sure something will appeal to your ear. so go on and investigate and let these kick ass sounds wash over you in your homes, in your cars, blasting out of tinny computer speakers, you name it, pick your poison and let it infect you. Peace....I'm out! Love, Destroy the Scene.

Quakers-Quakera(Stones Throw) RIYL: modern electronic music set to hip hop beats with a rotating cast of MCs from all over the place
Perfume Genius-Put Your Back N 2 It(Matador) RIYL: The now classic indie rock albums of the late 90s and early 2000s, Antony and the Johnsons
