Ephemera – Favorite Song or Album of 2012

It’s the end of the year, so we’re asking the Confabulators what their favorites of 2012 are. This week, they tell us what their favorite song and/or album of 2012 was.

Jason Arnett

If you look at my iPod, it’ll tell you that the soundtrack for The Dark Knight Rises is tops for the year. I liked Fiona Apple’s new album but I haven’t listened to it enough to have a real opinion. As for songs, I’ve gotta admit that Adele’s Skyfall theme was pretty damn cool.

Ted Boone

I haven’t bought a lot of music this year. Imagine Dragons’ Night Visions as well as Milk Famous by White Rabbits, I guess.

Sara Lundberg

I fell in love with the song “Little Talks” by Of Monsters and Men earlier this year. I went and bought their mp3 album, My Head is an Animal,  which I never do because I very rarely buy music anymore, but it was cheap, and I love just about every song on there. Also really loved most of the Black Key’s album El Camino, my favorite song on there being “Gold on the Ceiling,” which is currently my ringtone.

Kevin Wohler

I’m not much for pop music these days. My satellite radio is usually tuned to an oldies station or Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville. That said, this year I “discovered” The Explorers Club, a band out of South Carolina. Their 2012 album Grand Hotel is a throwback to the pop music of the 1960s. My favorite track on the album is “Grand Hotel/Go For You.”

Christie Holland

Theatre is Evil by Amanda Palmer & The Grand Theft Orchestra. There’s not a song on that album I don’t love.

Larry Jenkins

Some Nights by Fun. I absolutely love this album, and the song “One Foot” seems like a great tune to listen to if you’re gearing up for a fight. At least it makes me want to punch somebody.

Stone Sour: House of Gold and Bones Volume 1. This is the first half of a dual release project for Stone Sour. Volume 2 will be out in 2013. I’ve been a fan of Stone Sour for some time. I hosted a metal show on KURE at Iowa State University back when Slipknot first hit big. It was a fantastic time to be a loud rock fan in Iowa. I’ve had a special place in my heart for Slipknot ever since.
Stone Sour falls into that, as well. Fantastic band.
