Further Proof 2012 Is Great For Music

2012 might be the next 2009 in terms of great music.

So far we got:


- Beach House
- Rufus Wainwright
- Ramona Falls
- Hot Chip
- Metric
- Fiona Apple
- No Doubt
- Garbage
- Jens Lekman
- Little Boots
- Calvin Harris


so what could make this all POSSIBLY better?



BE STILL MY CAFFEINE-ADDICTED HEART.

Apparently she's releasing THREE EPs this year. That's right:  she's pulling a Robyn.

This new song- "The Night Within"- is off the soundtrack to the art film with the SAME title. Annie, for the record, appears in it. Must see? YES.

  1. I'm definitely listening to Hot Chip, actually I just put their new stuff on. Will listen to metric then...usually a bit too rough for casual listening, but I`ve always found at least a few gems on their album before. I've been missing a Rufus Wainwright album like 2001's glorious "Poses". Fiona Apple is a must listen, although I was never a huge fan or listen to her a lot...I feel it's just something you have to listen to at least once. Beach House seemed interesting enough and I listened to them a week or se when they were being hyped last summer. I doubt Calvin Harris that fucking cunt will ever release a good album again. I liked Little Boots, she's terribly cute and I hope she keeps growing. As far as No Doubt and Garbage go, will listen, not expecting much.

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:

You Need to Hear This: Concrete Castles

I first heard of First to Eleven a few years ago thanks to the powers of social media. They are a talented young band straight out of my hometown (Erie, PA). Since I've first heard of them, First To Eleven - which primarily were a social media-based cover band - has revealed an original music incarnation, Concrete Castles.  No matter if they're covering songs or releasing their own music, one thing is evident: Concrete Castles is MASSIVELY talented. Anchored by Audra Miller's powerhouse vocals that are vaguely reminiscent of Hayley Williams, Concrete Castles demand your attention. Although they can fall in that sort of amorphous "indie pop" umbrella, I don't think their sound would be amiss on mainstream radio - top 40 or alternative.  "Wish I Missed U" - their debut album - came out earlier this September, and it's an enjoyable, invigorating listen that would probably make those who were raised on emo or fans of CHVRCHES feel at home. Hell, Anth
