    With 2012 over halfway over, this seems like as good a time as any to start getting things together for the inevitable “year end” list. So let’s keep it simple: Here are ten awesome and overlooked trashy, garage rocky, power poppy, grungy, grimy, slimy, noisy releases that I haven’t already talked about in this column this year.

    1) Spacin’ – Deep Thuds

    [Richie/TestosterTunes]
    Over in Philadelphia, critical attention has rightfully been focused on Kurt Vile and The War on Drugs. But the city’s unsung hero is Richie Records, the label run by Richie Charles that puts out scuzzy gems like the debut offering from Spacin’. Deep Thuds is equal parts spaced out atmosphere (duh) and classic rock hooks. The band’s led by Jason Killinger of the great Philly band Birds of Maya, and even though the album only had a whirlwind micro-pressing, it’s well worth seeking out.


    2)  Thee Marvin Gays – Thee Marvin Gays

    [self-released]
    This thing actually came out late last year, but I’m lumping it in my year end list as a release that “made impact” this year. (Analogy: Remember when R. Kelly’s Love Letter came out and nobody reviewed it until the next month? This is like that. Yeah, that’s the ticket.) Infectiously hooky garage gems from Belgium.
