Small technical difficulties with our LP to digital making us late today, but here we are! Day 3 of Big Rock Candy Mountain's 50 Best Records of 2012!
Not much to say, other than encouraging folks to let us know their faves of the year, in case we missed something!
On with it then...

Blip and bleep space travel over Beach Boys fuzz incognito, the last wave on nuclear ground.

Cowpunk castration, a collection of sorts, psycho hillbilly wipe 'em off after shame, stomp and shit-caked boots travelin' gothic sugarcane sleaze.
T.Tex Edwards: Cravin' (mp3)
28. The Golden Boys: Dirty Fingernails
Bar band glory, organ-drenched geetar salvation, last body in the bar looking for love or fucking either one will do, the stink of stale beer and 3 AM hullabaloo.
The Golden Boys: Outta The Dark (mp3)
27. Puffy Areolas: 1982: Dishonorable Discharge
Nasty-ass scuzz, with theme deconstructed out of blown speaker dissolve, cranked-out blown, and blasted fuzzed out vocal disappear.

24. Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs: Sunday Run Me Over
More Holly Golightly exploration of old weird america, perhaps her best ever, slicing out cotton fields on fire viewed from creaky boards with history crashing and slipping into god, who has abandoned the shack, the devil alive in fire.
Holly Golightly and the Brokeoffs: Goddamn Holy Roll (mp3)
23. Useless Eaters: C'est Bon LP/ Addicted to the Blade 7"
The last bastion at the end of the world, sharded and angular, sleazed-out full of garbage leavings and lo, a saviour!
Useless Eaters: Receiver (Drop the Bomb) (mp3)
22. Hank Haint: Blackout
Yr best Hank Williams for the new millennium, in rawking chair electric spinning sparks against dying fireflies, the world at it's cowboy end big hat smoldering on wooden planks dreaming of yesteryear.

21. The Hussy: Weed Seizure
Psyh-destruction, kaboom, the peace sign shining neon with shards of bellybutton gazing focused into frenzy, toked and twisted into fuzzy blasting aural explosion!
