The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #50 - The Big Pink

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. And now, away we go!

WHO: The Big Pink

WHAT: Future This

WHEN: January 2012


WHY: There's something about sexy synths I find hard to resist. Anthemic and pretty darn sweeping in scale, The Big Pink leaves it all on the table. Not nearly as dark as I had expected, Future This is almost uplifting at times. 

MY JAMS: "Stay Gold" "77"
