My favorite music of 2012 (so far)
Since we are three-quarters of the way through 2012 already, I thought it was worth sharing the albums I have liked the most so far this year.

But I have never had a good outlet for the third. I listen to and think about music all the time. I started this Tumblr so I could write and share about music. Hope you can do both with me. Away we go!
