"Inpector Norse" by Todd Terje, from It's The Arps EP (2012)
Heard nothing about this DJ / song all year, until like the last month... then it seemed like everyone was talking about it.
I would like to see that documentary in full.
"Brillar" by Pegasvs, from Pegasvs (2012)
I voted for GOAT (#1, 2012) as Best Rock & Breakthrough Artist in the Rober Awards poll - looks like they won the polls, but not the awards! Anyway, I found this group under Best Hispanic Artist category (Spain).
Just found a more recent video from them.
"Affection" by Crystal Castles, from (III) (2012)
