Their album "Elegant Balloons" made the DPDC Best of 2012 list and had they released a record this year, I'm certain it would've landed in similar standing.
If you haven't heard these guys, head directly to their bandcamp site for your primer. http://bedfordfalls.bandcamp.com/
In addition to consistently putting out great records, Tom also has really superb taste in them. I asked him if he'd be willing to share some of his favorites from the past year and thankfully he accommodated my request.
I leave you with that, since many of you will now have some pressing album exploration to do. Thanks Tom!
