14/1/2013 ‘2012 RETRO’ tracklist

Already mulling over tracks for next week’s sonic journey, an anatomical affair, as I prepare to set down the ten pieces featured on Monday’s brief trip back into 2012. Due to the length of some tracks, there wasn’t time to fit in a few highlights, but, if something from those albums hasn’t already found it’s way onto The Kitchen Sink, then I’m sure it won’t be long before time is found…..
Without further ado, here are the ten, a diverse bunch I hope you’ll agree!

One of the highlights from the Bay Area’s supergroup of sorts appeared a suitable way to bring the sonic proceedings to a close. A quick listing of some of the albums which would have featured given more than 60 minutes:

Godspeed You! Black Emperor – Allelujah! Don’t Bend Ascend
Lento – Live Recording
Lento –  Anxiety Despair Languish
V/A – Soul Cal
V/A – Listen, Whitey! The Sounds of Black Power 1967-1974
F.C Judd – Electronics Without Tears
Earth – Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light II
Laurel Halo – Quarantine
Scott Walker – Bish Bosch
Monolake – Ghosts

That makes twenty. Any suggestions, recommendations for other highlights from 2012 would be very welcome!
Until next time, wishing anyone perusing this many a sonic gem, S.

P.S It looks like once again the links aren’t going to function – they used to, any suggestions as to how I can make them work ?
