Music of 2012 - Part 2

Foster the People - Torches - How have I remained to oblivious to this band for so long? I had heard of them (with the BOOM of bands with ‘the’ in their names), but had never listened to them, until I saw their live show on Boombox All Access. I don’t know if I had listed to Pumped Up Kicks before that, all I know is that it got stuck in my head. This album (deluxe version) is just perfect! 

St. Lucia - This is another band in Patsavas’ recommendation. I spent weeks waking up with All Eyes on You in my head.

Band of Skulls - Sweet Sour - I’ve been waiting for this one. I love this band, it gets me back to my pure rock and roll days and this album is just as good as the previous one, but with something extra. I can’t explain, it’s great.

The Black Keys - El Camino - I know it’s not their most recent album, but it’s one of my favorites for this year. Can’t describe how happy I was when I heard Lonely Boy on the Warm Bodies trailer (and Broken Bells!).

Poliça - Amongster is one of my favorite songs ever. It has a very special place my heart. And that’s all I need to say.

Electric Guest - This Head I Hold - Troubleman is an 8:48 minutes long song. Is it boring? Never. This song is so filled with emotions. Can’t not enjoy it. The same goes for the rest of this EP.
