20 Best Albums of 2012: #20

20. Jets Overhead, Boredom and Joy

Boredom and Joy, by underrated Vancouver alt-rock band Jets Overhead, is an endlessly rewarding album. The title track, with its wistful memories of summer, sets a nostalgic tone, which provides a compelling contrast to the album’s uptempo melodies, dreamy feel and shimmering instrumentation. Adam Kittredge and Antonia Freybe-Smith are effortlessly versatile singers, and songs where they join forces, such as "Your Desire" - on which they murmur to each other, "How can I tell you what I want to say?" - are some of the album's best moments.
