Getintothis' 2012 albums of the year reaches the penultimate stage.

20. Baltic Fleet Towers album cover.jpg
Baltic Fleet: Towers
Blow Up Records
Paul Fleming's kraut-imbued industrial pop married hooks with inventive musicianship resulting in one of the finest records from Liverpool in years.

19. White Hills Frying.jpg
White Hills: Frying On This Rock
Thrill Jockey
The psych wizards cast their greatest spell yet with this expansive monolithic slab of electrifying spacerock.

18. Grimes Visions.jpg
Grimes: Visions
4AD
Claire Boucher served up a hypnotic set of wondrous weirdo pop which was as darkly unsettling as it was naively childlike. A cornucopia of delights quite unlike anything else.

17. Liars W.jpg
Liars: WIXIW
Mute
Liars reasserted their crown as the leading players in monstrously mutating rock jams this time turning their attention to fried electronic beat beasts. Scary shit.

16. The Woods Bend.jpg
Woods: Bend Beyond
Woodsist
Timeless Americana which ol Shakey would be proud of. Nuff said.

15. The Invsisble Rispah.jpg
The Invisible: Rispah
Ninja Tune
Bold brooding introspection reflecting on life, death and everything in between.

14. Sharon van Etten.jpg
Sharon Van Etten: Tramp
Jagjaguwar
Bewitching droney odes which carry the power of Patti Smith boxed up by Bon Iver - a tender, raw treasure.

13. Peaking Lights Lucifer.jpg
Peaking Lights: Lucifer
Weird World
More Augustus Pablo swamp stoner brilliance, as LA duo Aaron Coyes and Indra Dunis managed to better their debut 936. The spin off Lucifer In Dub was a tasty unexpected addition.

12. VCMG.jpg
VCMG: SSSS
Mute
Ferocious dungeon disco from veterans Vince Clarke and Martin Gore. It's a world away from Oh L'Amour.

11. John Talabot.jpg
John Talabot: Fin
Permanent Vacation
This year's Swim, Talabot etched the sound of the summer deeply into this record which can already be hailed as a dance classic.
