It's Not Dark Yet: Favorite Songs of 2012

Here are my forty favorite songs of 2012, organized in such a way that I think flows best sonically and thematically, and mixed by the mad talented kaziali. The far out art was created by Carlos Castro, who also created the 'branding' (fuck that word) for this site, and was made to fit both the mix title and the overall impact of the song set. Taken as a whole, this is what 2012 felt like to me. Better late than never. Track listing in the comments. Cheers.
