The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #35 - Sun Airway

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: Sun Airway

WHAT: Soft Fall

WHEN: September 2012

WHERE: Dead Oceans

WHY: It took me all of approximately 45 seconds to decide I was in smit with Sun Airway's Soft Fall. The record is ethereal, beautiful, mesmerizing, seductive, and elegant, to say the least; eleven rose-colored kaleidoscopic songs full of wonder and radiance. Pulsating with energy, but still velvet soft, the LP is a treat to listen to.

MY JAMS: "Wild Palms" "Laketop Swimmers" "Soft Fall" "Black Noise" "Over My Head"
