  3. Context
    by Hotel Neon

    A masterwork in subtlety. The third full length from the once duo, now trio, Hotel Neon, Context exists in a realm many ambient and drone musicians aspire to achieve, and yet so few do. Walking that place between places- Context is a work that can be at once dissected infinitely due to its dense layering and textural complexity, and completely ignored because of its minimal instrumentation and glacial melodic pacing. I prefer the former. This is the perfect blend for enthusiasts of the genre.

  5. One Vast Awakened Thing
    by Transient Sounds
    00:00/00:00
    Close Your Eyes Close Your Eyes
    A wonderful, minimal guitar-based ambient release. The emotion created is that of Michael sitting alone with his instrument, no pressure, no audience, just the raw feelings, sounds, and textures created in those quiet moments, alone. Some might call those moments self indulgent, but that's not what we find here. What we are gifted with on One Vast Awakened Thing is simple vulnerability.

    What do you get when you cross the djent inspired guitar ferocity of Meshugga and Cloudkicker with the airy, positive atmospheres of Lowercase Noises and American Football and mix it all with an intense, precisioned energy? Muir's self titled release.

    End This End This
    This is my friend, David. He's making music all by his lonesome now. It's kind of like if The National and Strand of Oaks had an emo, teenage son in the late 90's. It's super good, you guys.

    HUMORES IV : Melaina Cholè HUMORES IV : Melaina Cholè
    A fantastic, organic ambience experience. Expertly crafted and executed, this concept album is a sweet addition to anyone's instrumental ambient collection. Humores I-IV is creative and experiential. I can't talk about it with you. You just have to listen.

    This album is sick. Like a heavier Passion Pit. Dancy, rocky, dirty synths and falsetto vocals, I dig it a lot.

    A cool little chill/electronic album with some sweet vibes. I dig it.
  37. What Wonder is this Universe!
    by the Soil & the Sun
    00:00/00:00
    Who Is He, Anyway? Who Is He, Anyway?
    Universe is the maniacal undertaking of some of the most eclectic and creative musicians in the indie scene today. From the tribal-esque percussion (because Ben and gang don’t so much “drum” as they do “hit things in rhythm”) to the energetic vocals of the whole group, to the fuzzy, reverby walls of sound by the band, and the lyrical prowess, this is definitely one of the best rock albums of 2012, mainstream or indie.
  38. Wake Up, Child
    by the Soil & the Sun
    00:00/00:00
    Raised in Glory Raised in Glory
    Grand Rapids’ own show their true colors on this album, and the songs are all so good, you can’t help but be drawn in to this roller coaster of musical emotions. Highlights for me have always been “There Is No Death” and “Raised In Glory.” Make sure you check this one out.
  39. Bear Hope
    by Kelsey Rottiers & the Rising Tide
    00:00/00:00
    Bear Hope Bear Hope
    One of my top releases of 2012. This folk-rock-pop-awesome record is full of power and poise. Kelsey's powerful vocals mixed with fantastical melody and great musicianship make this a don't-miss. And what's more amazing than half the album sales fighting slavery? Nothing. That's what.
