2012 End Of The Year Lists

This list was really difficult to put together this year. I literally did some math to figure out what order to put them in. Anyways, I’m still pretty terrible at keeping up with new music, so don’t remind me of all the stuff I missed this year. I’m sure I’ll get around to ‘em eventually.

Favorite Albums:

End Of The Year Lists

Hi, everyone! Here is my feeble attempt at making lists for my favorite music-things in 2011. This is only my second year doing this so it’s still not going to be that cool. I’m still going through this phase where I want to buy all my music on CD or vinyl, and since I have no real source of income right now, it’s difficult to keep up with all the new music. I’m sad to admit that this list would probably look different had I been able to get all the music I wanted. SO, now that I’ve got that out way!… check it out:

Good Old War - Only Way To Be Alone [2008]
I’ve been meaning since forever to order this CD but I hate ordering CDs because a) it takes all the fun out of going somewhere and finding it yourself and b) it costs a lot more. Anyways, I follow Sargent House (record label) on Twitter and they were giving away downloads to any of their albums to the first 100 people who tweeted them. I got this one, of course. That was a couple weeks ago but yesterday I was really sad and feeling so bummed about things and I decided I needed to cheer up. My solution: Good Old War. And you know what? Coney Island NEVER gets old. That song just makes me feel so happy and the album is no different. Song after song it’s just beautiful melodies mixed with beautiful harmonies. In other words, it rules. View Larger

NEW CD: Days Away - Mapping An Invisible World [2005]
Don’t worry, this is the last one for a while or a week (or something). God And Mars has been one of my favorite songs ever since I first heard it around a year ago. The album is nothing short of amazing. I can’t stop listening to it. In case you didn’t know, Keith Goodwin and Tim Arnold, who are now 2/3 of Good Old War used to be in Days Away. So, yes, it is really good. View Larger

I know everyone would want me to say
that I’m not afraid to be alone
I’m gonna live I’m alright,
I’m gonna die it’s alright, I’m okay
