The Noise Pop Podcast is grateful to you, our listeners, which is why we're serving ug up a cornucopia of amazing songs that missed their rightful place in the internet spotlight this year. This episodes is dedicated to the unsung songs of 2012, the ones that didn't get the internet hype they deserved. Throughout the year there is so much music that demands our attention that sometimes we collectively miss, what would otherwise be stand out tracks, so this episode is our way to right that wrong and say "Thank you for the music". Enjoy and Happy Thanksgiving.
