The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #24 - White Laces

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: White Laces

WHAT: Moves

WHEN: September 2012

WHERE: Speakertree Records

WHY: I know I've beat this drum near about to death, y'all, but Richmond has it going on with regards to music. White Laces, who just so happen to be of Richmond, just so happen to illustrate how this just so happens to be factual. Alive with electricity and swagger and abandon, Moves is a whirlwind of glorious noise. A little bit psych, a little bit shoegaze, a little bit post-punk, the breadth of the White Laces appeal is far-reaching. Sounds better the louder you play it.  

MY JAMS: "Trading" "Heavy Nights" "Parallel Chills
