Our favorite sounds of 2012

Well, 2012 is history and there’s nary a Mayan apocalypse to show for it. We here at DECIBELity discovered a variety of great music over the past year—even if we got a little behind on sharing it with you all. (We did, however manage to produce 9 installments of our DecibelCast Mixtape series.)

We’ve all agreed to step up our game as far as producing content for 2013 goes, but felt it necessary to give a proper send off to 2012 before doing so (even if we are a few weeks late). So without further ado here are our favorite sounds.
