The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #14 - Ttotals

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: Ttotals

WHAT: Silver on Black

WHEN: August 2012

WHERE: Self-released

WHY: Somewhere there exists a parallel universe, where there is only light and love and loud, loud music. Ttotals has come from this universe, temporarily residing in Nashville to spread their "Outer Blues" to the discerning listeners who understand. Controlled, fuzzy chaos ebbs and flows, a guitar churns mercilessly, and drums are pounded with cool, loving ferocity. And seriously, y'all, "Flowers Follow" is one of my favorite songs of the whole dang year. Dig in. Believe the truth.     

"Special A" "Flowers Follow" "Over The Years"
