Local musical favorites in 2012

After receiving some emails and other feedback regarding my best of 2012 list the question I keep getting is “why didn’t you do a strictly local best of list?”

That is a fair question. 2012 was a fantastic year for artists from the Puget Sound area and they all deserve credit. So this list is in no particular order and is meant to touch on all my favorite local releases from 2012 (excluding the local releases from my last best of list). Not just full albums but singles and EPs as well.

Enjoy and be sure to go check out these artists when they play in your area.
