City Slang: What was your album of the year?

December 28, 2012
By

Right now, we are gathering polls from critics and musicians and we’ll be posting a bunch of Top Tens in the New Year.

However, it’d be good to get your opinion. Let us know your favorite local album, local song, national album and/or national song from 2012 and we’ll publish some of them in a future blog. Just comment your entries at the bottom of this blog.

Have a good think about it – there has been a lot of amazing music released in Detroit this year, although we’re sure 2013 will be even better. That’s usually the way it works. Cheers.

    The funniest thing is that the band is called I Love Lightning Bugs. They are not called Lightning Bugs, and we have a bunch of people here proclaiming their love. lol. Although they kinda are. So they shouyld be saying I love I Love Lightning Bugs.

    I Love Lightning Bugs. Kensington. It’s the album of 2012. It’s the album that feels like you just picked up your first post-punk rock album. Like hearing U2 again for the first time. This is a great band and a great album.
