The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #13 - Echo Lake

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: Echo Lake

WHAT: Wild Peace

WHEN: June 2012

WHERE: Slumberland Records

WHY: There is an effortless ethereal aura to Wild Peace, as if the members of Echo Lake just woke up one day and made the beautiful magic happen by chance. Languid and liquid, the icy lady vocals and slow motionscapes create enchantment at every turn, while proving incredibly atmospheric. Wild Peace is a gem amongst records, and a must for anyone with an ear for the prettiest of sounds. 

MY JAMS: "Another Day" "Even The Blind" "In Dreams" "Swimmers" "Just Kids"
