The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #48 - The Spring Standards

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: The Spring Standards

WHAT: Yellow//Gold

WHEN: May 2012

WHERE: Parachute Shooter

WHY: I'm totally a sentimental girl at heart. The boys and girl of The Spring Standards capture layers of sentiment and earnestness on Yellow//Gold, and the down home, yet pop-tinged songs with splendid boy-girl vocals sound nothing but appealing. 

MY JAMS: "Rusty Wheels" "Here We Go" "Only Skin"

mp3: Only Skin (The Spring Standards from Yellow//Gold)
