Rocks Off's 10 Best Musical Discoveries of 2012
MATTHEW KEEVER: Macklemore. You're probably all getting tired of "Thrift Shop" by now, but compared to the rest of the music played on mainstream radio, this song has got to be a breath of fresh air. And it isn't even a good representation of the rest of his music, either. Check out "Otherside," "Can't Hold Us" or "The Town" if you want to hear what this Seattle-based rapper is all about. I'm just glad a friend told me about him before he came through town.
CHRISTINA LYNN: For me it was Someday by Susanna Hoffs of the Bangles -- nice little side project.
SHEA SERRANO: The Outfit, Tx. They might be geniuses.
