ladies and gentlemen (and others), it’s that time to once again bring you another two in review.
if you’ve missed any past reviews, you can view the two in review archive.
this is one of those where it was really difficult to narrow down a long list of really great music. that’s why you’re getting this on the very last day of april. i’ve spent the last week (and particularly, the last 2 days) adding and taking away tracks from the final 20 you’re receiving today. a lot of great music didn’t make the final cut. nevertheless, i’m happy with the final result. i hope you are as well.
so without further ado, here’s the lineup for the march/april edition of two in review:
ladies and gentlemen (and others), we’re a couple months into a new year which means it’s that time to once again bring you two in review. believe it or not, this is year number 3 of this series, so i’m excited to still be plugging along. i hope you’re enjoying it as well.
typically, the start of a new year is a slow time for new music. this year was no different. with the exception of music from fiction family, frightened rabbit and the lone bellow (and a couple others), there weren’t a lot of major highlights in january. february, though, picked up and helped to make for a pretty good collection this month.
my favorite two in reviews are ones that offer a broad spectrum of music and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint. so without further ado, here’s the lineup for the january/february edition of two in review:
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.
i posted the first half of my favorite songs of 2012 yesterday and now it’s time to complete the list. from white rappers to swedish folk duos and everything in between, here’s the top 15 songs that made 2012 a great year for music:
this past thursday and friday—with best new music discoveries and cover songs—have been list appetizers. but now we’ve reached the main courses: songs and albums (we’ll get to albums in a couple days). i’ve listened to, um, a few songs this year. and while many were good, there were a select list of great songs.
since there were so many great songs that deserve a little extra attention, i thought i’d split the list into 2 halves. we’ll work through numbers 30 through 16 today and tackle the rest tomorrow.
so, from commercial sensations to obscure internet phenoms, here’s the (first half of the) songs that made 2012 a great year for music:
ladies and gentlemen (and others), it’s come that time to once again bring you two in review.
