Finally had a chance to finish this up. Have to say 2012 was a challenge to commit to a solid list. I especially found it difficult to exclude all Shelflife releases. Albums by Burning Hearts, Dylan Mondegreen and The Garlands would surely be in the mix for my top 5. The pains of being unbiased ... But top honors this year is still no real surprise. Violens "True" was an easy love affair. A sound that just defines "wheelhouse" for me. The first three tracks on the record are [...]

Very excited to announce Ian Catt will now be producing The Proctors upcoming album on Shelflife!

Ian has also just completed production on another future Shelflife release, which we'll be announcing very soon.
We welcome another new international addition to the Shelflife family, Picnic , who are one of Estonia's brightest groups. To celebrate the occasion, the band recorded this special limited edition 73 featuring their take on two of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written - "We've Only Just Begun" by Roger Nichols and Paul Williams and "Say a Little Prayer" by Burt Bacharach and Hal David. Picnic formed in 2006 by Marju Taukar, Andres Soosaar and Rivo Jaervsoo. Marju and Andres were previously in 90s indie band Dreamphish and Rivo is a current member of [...]
The Proctors have had a busy start to 2012 already. They're fresh off their London Popfest performance and are now heading to Madrid .

The single is a teaser for their new album, which is slated to come out on Shelflife later this year. You can download it now for free just by entering in your e-mail address. Enjoy! [...]
Here is The Holiday Crowd's brand new music video for their single "Pennies Found." The video, directed by visual artist Matthew Sitler, was filmed entirely on his iPhone. Order their debut "Over the Bluffs" on limited 123 vinyl, cd or digital formats in the US on Shelflife and world-wide on New Romantic .
I can't believe it's already mid-December and already time for top 10s of 2011. This year has been a complete blur. In putting this post together, I completely forgot about so much music that came out this year. I'm sure it's no surprise that I've reformatted this list numerous times. I have left out some previous top 10 favorites (Digitalism, Washed Out, Korallreven, among others) as their records all kind of lost their spark for me. Top honors this year goes to "Weathering" by Epic45 . I absolutely adore this record! On first [...]
