The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #22 - Prince Rama

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: Prince Rama

WHAT: Top 10 Hits of the End of the World

WHEN: November 2012

WHERE: Paw Tracks

WHY: There is so much going on on this record that it's almost overwhelming. Fortunately, I'm a gal who's more than a bit fond of excess, so I'm in favor of the more is more approach. Pretty much impossible to categorize (though I'll give it a go and call this sparkly apocalyptic tribal disco pop), Prince Rama has hit it out of the park with this latest endeavor. Not for those who like to keep their music in neat little boxes, this one's a treat for anyone craving something special.

MY JAMS: "So Destroyed" "Welcome To the Now Age" "Exercise Ecstasy" "We Will Fall In Love Again"
