two in review: november/december 2012

ladies and gentlemen (and others), it’s come that time (just by the skin of my teeth…) to once again bring you two in review.

if you’ve missed past editions, here’s the previous posts from 2012:

1. january/february 2012

2. march/april 2012

3. may/june 2012

4. july/august 2012

5. september/october 2012

we’ve come to the end of another year of 2 in review-ing and this installment has been a bit unusual. as i write this, we’re on day number 6 of having no power, so we’ve been house-hopping and have found ourselves at a different person’s house each day. so, i’ve sorta thrown this together.

nevertheless, i think i’ve put together a worthy compilation despite the fact that this time of the year is a little slow for new (good) music. as always, i hope you enjoy and that you’re able to discover some new music.

without further ado, here’s the lineup for the november/december edition of two in review:

1. foals: inhaler [from their forthcoming foals]
2. big boi: in the a (ft. t.i. and ludacris) [from vicious lies and dangerous rumors]
3. islands: hallways [from a sleep & a forgetting]
