Wrap It Up & Move On (2012)

A 2012 wrap it up and move on.

Being honest here, I have no desire to do a year-end recap, to blog about what we blogged about, what we listened to in 2012. I admit and accept that 2012 was a slow for us on Beat & Lyric….maybe we were busy? Maybe we were lazy? Maybe we just didn’t have the desire to chit chat about music?

I will say my year was consumed by Jack White. If you have 75 minutes to spare watch Conan’s sit-down with Jack here – http://teamcoco.com/video/serious-jibber-jabber-04-jack-white

Here is a sample of what I was listening to in 2012, it’s not all new, some of it is old some really old but it is what passed through my headphones on a regular basis. I ran to it, I clean my house to it, I drove (likely too fast) to it…..I may have even sung along (no one needs to hear that). I

She Wants Revenge – Tear You Apart
Dum Dum Girls – Lord Knows
Tegan & Sara – Closer
Yuna – Lullabies
Willy Moon – Railroad Track
Stateless – Bloodstream
Silversun Pickups – Bloody Mary
The xx – Islands
Franz Ferdinand – Lucid Dreams
The Black Belles – Wishing Wells
Ryan Horne – Terrible Tommy
Tribes – Sappho
Gin Wigmore – Man Like That
The Avalanches – Frontier Psychiatrist
Tanlines – All of Me
Dirty Projectors – Gun Has No Trigger
Ryan Star/Stage – The World Has Come Between Us

I tried not to list stuff that I blogged about. Obviously I over-listened to Jack White, Ryan Star and Hesta Prynn, Florence + The Machine, to name a few I blogged about this year. I had a iPhone/iPod/iTunes malfunction part way through the year and had to re-load everything. I’m sure there is a song or two floating out there that I missed.

Cheers and here is to a promise of more music blogging in 2013.

    Great list Lila, I particularly agree with She Wants Revenge and Silversun Pick-ups. I would have to say that my favorite Jack Black song that I heard this year was his cover of Love is Blindness from the Actung Baby cover album. Stellar.
    Secondly I was going to mention that if you enjoy a bit of dark melancholy you should do a youtube search on a band called Johnny Hollow. 🙂
