Any Best Albums of 2012 lists that do not have the Mountain Goats’ Transcendental Youth in at least the top 25 are garbage.Looking at you, Pitchfork.

The cover art for Transcendental Youth is wonderful.
I’m setting up my playlist for the radio show tonight, but I figure this is a perfect time to find some new tunes.
I have my favorites, of course: John Darnielle, Stephin Merritt, Elvis Costello, Joanna Newsom, John K. Samson, Theo Hilton.
Who are yours?
