What band did you discover in 2012 (can be a brand new band or an older band) that had an impact on your life? What made them significant?
Kadavar (Not the death metal band). Great contemporary band from Berlin doing the "classic rock revival" flawlessly. They have a LP out on Tee Pee, great stuff.

Touring with Colony (NY), making new friendships along the way on that tour. The headache of releasing the Convul LP (mainly the pressing plant delaying it).

Debut LP from Divider (NY), Another release from Old Wounds besides their LP that is currently getting pressed and a few others that are still under wraps.

Fundraising sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have made a strong impact on the ability of artists to release music. Do you think this approach is a trend, or will it continue to shape how artists produce their material?
I think it is here to stay, will it take the place of indie labels and others of the sort? No, I don't think so. For as much artists want control over their work. They will still need the support of others to help them grow.
