Eyewear's Top Songs of 2012: #26 'You're Early' by 2:54

There was a lot of alternative music this year, but little of it had the seriousness of intent, and passionate yet cool tone, that marks the very best of this genre. 2:54, who seem to have been ignored in most end of year polls, created a seamless, beautiful and deeply polished album of haunted, aloof alt love songs, lost somewhere between dream pop and early Cure.  Hard to select the best from a perfect album, but here goes.
