Music of 2012

Recommended Posts

is Lana Del Rey too "pop" for you guys now? Cos she's doing big things. That new Ride song and video is good stuff. Rick Rubin produced the song.

Good call, I think 'Ride' may be a late contender for best music vid of 2012. She's actually not a bad actress either. :o

Speaking of possible late entrants for best of the year, the Rachel Zeffira album is out Monday. The more I hear, the more I look forward to it.

Anyone heard the Melody's Echo Chamber album? It's a mixture of sweet and airy French pop and, since Tame Impala's Kevin Parker is on production duties, the psych-rock sound of 'Lonerism'. Pretty sure everything he touches turns to gold. :laugh:

No love for Purity Ring on these lists? :no:

I didn't get to listen to much music this year so I won't post a list.
