0 Matt Sader's (Argonaut) Top Releases and Shows of 2012

Top Releases:

Melvins - "The Bulls and the Bees" - One of their best albums and it was free even!!!!

Melvins Lite - "Freak Puke" - Trevor Dunn on stand up bass. Say no more.

Melvins/Unsane split 7 inch.
Both bands I love, covering each others songs. Such a great 7 inch.

Unsane - "Wreck"
Awesome, just awesome.

Converge - "All We Love We Leave Behind"
Jake Weller turned me on to them. Thanks Jake!

Sandrider - "Sandrider" I wish I was in this band.

Absolute Monarchs - "1" AMAZING! Great people in this band and one of the most original guitarists to some out of this area ever. The attention this record got is well deserved.

Gaytheist - "Stealth Beats" When we played with these guys in Portland I was completely blown away, again, at the power of their songs. Awesome people too. Tim set the standard for all of us to follow playing a show within a week of having bladder cancer surgery. Top that dudes.

Torche - "Harmonicraft" This is such a well written well flowing record. It is fun to listen to.

Swans - "The Seer" I have loved this band for a very long time. I know of only one of my friends that knows this as I am such a Melvins nut. This record is creepy, ominous, dark, all the things that make a great SWANS record.

Lozen - "Para Vida" My Silent Queef Sistas. I love these girls, I am humbled to call them friends and this is a great record.

X Suns - "Demo" This band is flat out amazing live and recorded as well. We love playing with this band, great guys and outstanding musicians. Fun too!
