1. Divine Fits – A Thing Called Divine Fits
Britt Daniel and Dan Boeckner, from the bands Spoon and Wolf Parade, respectively, formed this band early in 2012. The result of their collaboration is incredibly danceable pop/rock. My top pick for the past year, for sure.
2.Reptar – Body Faucet
This bouncy indie band out of Athens, Georgia stayed on repeat for easily two weeks.
3. Lemolo – Kaleidoscope
Haunting beautiful vocals and lyrics define this duo.
4. Miniature Tigers – Mia Pharoah
These boys can do nothing wrong, in my opinion. This is their third full length release, and rumor has it they are working on the next.
5. Geographer – Myth
My latest discovery, with music that pushes against a post punk/ new wave electronic vibe.
So, kids, there you are.
Music I am anxiously awaiting in 2013: Franz Ferdinand’s new album. It has been four years, already!!!
