The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #28 - Grass Widow

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: Grass Widow

WHAT: Internal Logic

WHEN: May 2012

WHERE: HLR

WHY: I must confess, it took a little time to fall in love with Grass Widow's Internal Logic. But the more I listened to them, the more I realized they were speaking my language. Theirs is a witchy, wonderful noise, pulling in the darker menace of the hallowed Glasgow School and vintage Flying Nun and adding some good old psych wizadry and heavenly vocals. It's rather enchanting, I must say, and I like this record more and more with every listen. At it's best, it's impossible to ignore.

MY JAMS: "Under The Atmosphere" "Disappearing Industries" "Advice"
