The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2012: #8 - Young Prisms

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: Young Prisms

WHAT: In Between

WHEN: March 2012

WHERE: Kanine Records

WHY: When I first listed to In Between, I was a bit surprised by what I heard. I had expected more of that delicious, heavy darkness Young Prisms had so recently offered up, the heady aggression wrapped in layers of gorgeous fuzz. But In Between is a totally different animal. The fuzz is still there, mind, but in a lighter, floatier way. It's as if the midnight of Friends For Now gave way to the dawn, and even if bittersweet, it's going to be a beautiful day indeed.

MY JAMS: "Floating In Blue" "Runner" "Midnight's When" "Better Days" "Sunshine"
