SYFFAL.com started out as a group of friends emailing their music finds to one another with clever little write ups that eschewed the traditional album review format. We eventually realized that we were on to something and decided to take the show on the road. We started SYFFAL as a way to share our love for the music that moved us and connect artists we loved with people beyond our small group. Our approach to music is this: If we like it we ride for it, if we don't fuck it we are not going to listen to it another 6 times and then spend an hour or so writing a piece explaining why it sucks. That is something only a cutter or a sadomasochist would do. Instead we focus on the positive, not in a "The Secret" way but in a "This makes me want to take acid in the shower while eating a falafal kind of way". You won't find over thought reviews, you won't find self important interviews. You will find a small band of music fans talking about music the way fans talk about music, fuck all that other pretty boy shit

Being that this is our last column of the year it is only appropriate that we count down our top album of the year. The top albums of the year list, at least for me, always contains a few entries that cause me to look back, SMH and think WTF.1 And you know what? I am fine with this, because I have come to the conclusion that it is rarer for an album to stay in rotation beyond a year or two than it is for an album to give us a few months of joy and eventually fade into the hard drive only to be dug out when making drunken playlists that need a strong emotional core. It is the nature of the beast, which is not a bad thing at all, realistically how many off us can spread joy into a complete strangers life?

Frank Ocean | Apollo Run | Father John Misty | Born Gold|How To Dress Well. Read on for our top albums of 2012!
