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: #2. Spiritualized – Sweet Heart Sweet Light

xxx

i used up all my affection

Spiritualized just continues dropping albums full of blues, feedback, gospel, drugs, love, pain, intensity, the sun, repetition, catharsis. None of these things are new, this their seventh album. This is pure Spiritualized, striking and affecting, a brilliant mix of simple parts making something more. This is what they do.

(This is, though, the worst album cover I’ve ever seen.)

Spiritualized “Get What You Deserve”

Spiritualized “Little Girl”

Life In Mixtape Form #50

Life In Mixtape Form #50 from almostaghost on 8tracks.

50! In case you’re new here and haven’t seen my explanation: every night I pick a sort of “song of the day,” and after eight days, I can share it on 8tracks (and here). It turns my life into a mixtape. 🙂

Also, RIP MCA.

I was never a huge Beastie Boys fan, to be honest, for various reasons, but I have grown to dig them quite a bit, and I can let all the touching memorials around the web speak to him. But as a music fan, I know how artists like him can touch people, and seeing the outpouring of emotion for MCA was quite moving.

The good thing: your favorite musicians last forever.
