2012 = Year of Pop Punk's reemergence into the mainstream.
  Royal Headache is getting a head start.  

 Stunning new release from Daniel Lopatin, synth magician, and new, new age leading light.  This has got to be the most contemporary sounding, vintage debris oriented, stoner record from the hypnagogia set.  This is why people really listen to OPN and only name check Ferraro.  

 Brazilian balearic from Resista, Dan Snaith's newish re-edit/dance label.  Super!
