So long 2012 – Sydney NYE

Now that I’m back from abroad, I’m amped to finally be sharing my list of stand-out indie tracks from the last year!

In no particular order, below are my top 50 artists and/or tracks of 2012. Since I started blogging midway through the year, some of these artists have been honored with a post prior and some have not.
