Amy’s 2012-2013 Music Highlights

I’ve been a lazy person with music, so instead of highlighting my favorite albums and songs of the past two years, I’ve only been doing single tracks [1][2]. I’ll just blame the industry, which has definitely focused on single-dropping (in the West) and EP-mini-dropping (in Asia). In the end, we always end up with two-three-part minis that are later released as one full-length album resulting of two releases of last year’s music with a new track.

The result? Albums are tricky now.

Anyway, since my computer’s internal hard disk got busted about two weeks ago, I found myself working on some key files that hadn’t been properly backed up, resulting in a loss of four months worth of music data that need to be -somehow- recovered. So I looked back to my 2013-2012 lists, hoping that I haven’t missed any.

Of course, by this time next year, the 2013 picks may have already been changed. As it usually happens with rushed End of the Year lists. Heck, your appreciation for an album may change one week to another, depending on your mood that day.

So here there are, 30 picks that right at this point of the year feel worth noting.

WARNING: Audio/Video and Playlist heavy.

30. Humming Urban Stereo – Sparkle

This one goes out to Giacomo for the introduction [1].

Though I did have the album a lot higher in my memory, it somehow slipped down to the bottom of the list.

If you like it, don’t forget to get it on iTunes.

    […] For the past two years, I took a break (and lazed about) when it came to making my music highlights list, which made for some interesting music choices~ if I may say so. I should take two years to make a list more often. This year I thought I did pretty okay, I’ve got listed nearly 180 albums/EPs/Minis, and many of my biases released new albums so you’ll have to forgive my predictability and lack of interesting choices this time around. However, there is one BIG surprise pick, which I never expected to ever see as any of my picks. […]

    […] Mohit Suri has a sketchy directorial track record- Aashiqui 2 is supposedly a little too much like A Star is Born (sorry, haven’t seen the film) and Ek Villain was -admittedly- a little too much like I Saw the Devil without the style (I did enjoy the villain build-up, though). What Mohit Suri has is the music of Mithoon, Ankit Tiwari and Jeet Gannguli whom -altogether- have been leaving their mark in modern emotional hindi soundtracks for the past two years. I did fall prey to their music [1]. […]
