Dreamsicle Bomb – Best Songs Of 2012

Dreamsicle Bomb – Best Of 2012 from almostaghost on 8tracks Radio.

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’s Top Albums Of 2012: #4. Trembling Bells & Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy – The Marble Downs

This, I believe, is essentially a Trembling Bells record–they wrote and performed almost everything, but the addition of Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy as a singer on the songs is quite cool. Trembling Bells’ singer is like the opposite of Billy–soaring British female vocals mix with Billy’s earthy Americana voice. And together, they bring an edge to their swirling mad folk sound to these songs about beauty and destruction and destructive beauty and beautiful destruction.
