20 Best Albums of 2012: #6

6. A Fine Frenzy, Pines

Inspired by the majesty and beauty of the redwood forests of Northern California and Washington, Pines may be the most unexpectedly brilliant album released this year. Alison Sudol, known previously for her charming blend of folk and upbeat pop, has crafted an immediate, raw and mesmerizing work. The hushed breaths that open “Pinesong” give way to the eerie “The Sighting,” triumphant “Sailingsong” and thunderous “They Can’t If You Don’t Let Them.” From start to finish, Pines is an album to get lost in.
