Brooklyn's George Lewis Jr. has made one of the most instantly enjoyable albums of 2012, especially if you came of musical age in the 1980s. Twin Shadow's second album, Confess, is composed of 10 perfectly wrought singles, one after the other—all the more impressive because Lewis produced it himself. He may not look like a geek, but he obviously is one. If you're one of those people who hears everything but the lyrics, you'd be forgiven for assuming Confess is a sexually aspirational/inspirational album: the thrilling synth swells, the soulful vocals, the fact that every song is directed toward a "you" who is at least as horny as she is rhetorical. The truth is more akin to a cautionary tale, a confession at its core—about hooking up, fucking people over, wanting to change, not being able to change. Being an asshole never sounded better. REBECCA WILSON
