Here is my monthly mix of new music from 2013. Looking ahead, there’s quite a few of my favorite artists putting stuff out this year, or expected to. So far there’s been a couple things I wanted to share, but not blown away by anything yet. Surely that will turn around soon.- almostaghost
Here’s a mix of some of my favorite 2012 songs. A lot of overlap with my top album list, obviously, but there’s some other things too.
Also I’ll note, I’m pretty sure Big Boi’s album would have made my list and near the top, it’s awesome, but it didn’t come out in time. Artists, release your albums before mid-December, thanks.
Anyway, year over, now it’s 2013.- almostaghost
Happy Leap Year Day! Also, it’s the end of the month, so here’s some of the new music I’ve found and liked enough to share! Still haven’t found all that many albums I love yet this year, but there’s a couple and the rest here are from singles or compilations.- almostaghost
Like last week, my week was again highlighted by a concert. This time I went to see Lykke Li (and Best Coast). I’ve seen Lykke before, in a small venue, but I found this bigger outdoor theatre performance to be much more memorable. I think it fit her unique stage presence. Part of that was having a 2nd album of songs–she just kept playing more and more songs that I liked and I kept thinking, “oh yea I forgot about this song!” It was great to hear the new stuff live; sometimes I just listen to the albums so much and sometimes I get a little nitpicky critical in thinking about them. But then to hear them live makes me step back–yes these are great songs.
(Best Coast was fine; all their songs sound the same.)- almostaghost
