ALARM’s 50 (+5) Favorite Songs of 2012

Sole: “Ruthless”

With his extra-talented Skyrider Band on hiatus, Sole’s first official solo album since 2005 is a new high point both lyrically and musically, with arpeggiated synth melodies and bounding bass lines from the likes of Busdriver, Alias, Factor, Open Mike Eagle, and others. “Ruthless” is the album’s short, punk-spirited closer, a damning of America’s militaristic and economic encroachments in two minutes.
