The Most Blogged About Shows This Week

Most Buzzed Artists of 2012

This is a very special edition of “The Most Blogged About Shows This Week.”  The My Social List team, as you may or may not be aware, tracks nine of the most relevant indie music blogs on the planet in order to determine what the “most blogged about” shows are each and every day and each and every week.  This column isn’t all fun and games!  It’s based on HARD DATA (with some creative liberties, of course.)

Today, we’ve released our list of the most blogged about artists of 2012, which literally ranks the artists each blog talked about the most in the past year.  Who really got the most Pitchfork praise this year?  Who did BrooklynVegan commenters get the most chances to hate on in 2012?
