The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #21 - Sea Of Bees

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: Sea Of Bees


WHEN: April 2012

WHERE: Team Love Records

WHY: I am wholly in smit with Orangefarben, the beautiful creation of Jules Bee, she behind Sea Of Bees. Haunted by her breathy, quivering vocals, the album sits comfortably in a land of pastoral urban folk, charming and alive and lined with a soft forlornness. Don't sleep on Miss Bee, as I'm sure her star is going to get a whole lot brighter in the not so distant future. 

MY JAMS: "Take" "Teeth" "More" "Alien"
