For all the hullabaloo about the world coming to a fiery end, 2012 was a pretty mellow year for me. Most of the albums you'll find below fall somewhere in the indie/alternative spectrum, for which I offer no apology to the metal-hungry masses.
Legendary post-rock outfit Godspeed You! Black Emperor have announced a rare run of fall shows that follow up their appearances at the Pitchfork Music Festival All Tomorrow's Parties in Asbury Park, New Jersey. The full list of dates can be found below.
