The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #44 - Plume Giant

When it comes to year-end lists, y'all know I don't mess around. I don't post my picks from the previous year for weeks after the next year has started. In 2012, there was a bounty of music that entered the world that made me deliriously happy to be blessed with the sense of sound. So I pondered, marinated, and contemplated for weeks. Music from 2012 has been digested for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. And now, friends, it's time. Time to share with you what I consider the cream of quite a crop indeed. You might see things omitted here that you think should be on a Best Of list. This list isn't what I think you want to read. This list is what I feel about last year. If it's not here, I either didn't spend enough time with it or just didn't love it enough. A big thank you to all of the artists who created the music that I fell in love with last year.

WHO: Plume Giant

WHAT: Callithump

WHEN: August 2012

WHERE: Self-released

WHY: Cozy and inviting, Callithump is homespun warmth and a daggum good ole time. Rustic, honest songs and a great spin on urban folk. Looks like Brooklyn kids can still do a good folksy record, and have fun doing it.

MY JAMS: "November" "Wait It Out "Back Porch"
