The Triangle's Top 32 Tracks of 2012 

We asked nearly a dozen area music writers to send us lists of their favorite Triangle-made songs in 2012. The results ranged from terse and telling (one critic listed just one song, signifying its personal import) to long and laudatory (another critic listed a few dozen great songs, evidencing the Triangle's continued productivity). The ballots have been distilled into the following 32 tracks, a broad representation of the region's best output this year. —Grayson Currin
