Yesterday’s good highlighted some of the year’s best debuts, which makes today the perfect opportunity to highlight tracks from some of 2012’s most impressive sophomore efforts. I can only imagine how difficult it is to follow up a debut album, especially when the sophomore release is in high demand. The bands below most definitely avoided the dreaded “sophomore slump”, none better so than The xx. Coexist was my most anticipated release of the year and it exceeding all of expectations. Easily my favorite album of the year. And like yesterday’s good, the tracks below are a very small representation of the year’s best follow ups. Enjoy.
