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: #28. Deep Sea Diver – History Speaks

Deep Sea Diver - History Speaks

watch your lips pulse to the beat

History Speaks is the debut record of Deep Sea Diver, the project mainly of Jessica Dobson and her minimal band. Jessica also moonlights as a guitar slinger for various artists (Beck, The Shins, Yeah Yeah Yeahs). Previously, a short Deep Sea Diver EP prior to History Speaks showed off her guitar skills and creativity. But History Speaks impressively expands on all that. More than just a great guitarist, Dobson’s voice sounds incredible, her songwriting varied and interesting and deep.

Here, I will share some of my favorites — a polyrhythmic Talking Heads-like jam called “You Go Running,” and the more moody title track. The rest of the album does not really sound like these two songs though, and that is why I like this album so much. These songs, just like this debut album, are surely just the tip of the Deep Sea Diver iceberg.

I know what you’re thinking: “this music I listen to is so boring, why am I so uncool?” Well listen to this and everything will change! All new music from 2012 that I like–the year started slow but exciting stuff is starting to come out.

Life In Mixtape Form #36

Life In Mixtape Form #36 from almostaghost on 8tracks.

Onwards, 8 more days, 8 more songs. These, I must say, are some great songs. 🙂 Also, got tickets to Coachella again this year, so expect a lot of info/thoughts about artists in the line-up out of me for the next couple of months.
