NPR Music has released its 100 Favorite Songs Of 2012 list, and two Oklahoma artists are on the roster.

Americana singer-songwriter John Fullbright, who hails from Bearden, makes the list with “Gawd Above,” from his Grammy-nominated debut studio album “From the Ground Up.” Here’s what NPR had to say about the song:

Americana music’s fiercest young contender speaks the word of a pissed-off deity in the punchiest slice of sacrilege music had to offer this year.

And Tulsa-born singer/songwriter/musician St. Vincent and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer David Byrne made the list with “Who,” from their collaborative album “Love This Giant.” Here’s what NPR had to say about “Who”:

One of rock’s most idiosyncratic elder statesmen pairs up with a brilliant rising singer and guitar player. The result? Horns. Horns everywhere.
