Pitchfork Top 100 Tracks of 2012

In convenient list form. Kendrick Lamar and Frank Ocean find themselves well represented in the track list, and the accolades will likely follow as the two are the likely top two in the albums list. The high inclusion of two Grimes songs, with one of course at number one, suggests that Visions could likely be finding itself a top 10 spot in the albums, ahead of what I initially predicted. Slight surprise to see only one Tame Impala, and one Beach House song, but I still can’t see either band finding itself out of the top 20 albums, let alone top 10. A very good collection of songs, and we will have to see how this plays out into the album list. Have a look at our ‘Pitchfork Top 20 Albums of 2012 Prediction’ to see what we think, I will leave it unchanged even though my thoughts on it are different after viewing this list. Enjoy the music.

2- A$AP Rocky (one as a featured artist), Chief Keef, Schoolboy Q, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, Four Tet (one with Burial), TNGHT, Jessie Ware, Killer Mike, Miguel, Grizzly Bear (both in top 50), Fiona Apple (both in top 40), Grimes (both in top 25)
