Jack McFadden, a onetime Brooklynite who moved to Austin and currently works as a talent buyer at Emo’s, gave us a list of his favorite music from 2012 including top 10 albums and a Spotify playlist of his favorite songs. Check it out below.

For those counting at home, that is three talent buyers (the people who book bands into clubs) that have revealed their hand to us, including NYC’s Johnny Beach and Chaos in Tejas honcho Timmy Hefner.

The Faint and Trust also gave us their lists. The pair recently toured through Texas and played a Skippy-booked show at Emo’s.
