Amy’s 2012-2013 Music Highlights

26. Chochukmo – A Tragedy Your Majesty

There hasn’t bee much movement from Chochukmo since our interview. Their second album, A Tragedy Your Majesty, took a while to be released. It definitely was after the End of the World was supposed to happen… and I think they’ve been touring in China.

The album is available in some iTunes stores and Xiami.

25. Jambinai (잠비나이) – Différance

And this shout out goes out to Jenna who interviewed Jambinai ;)

See, this is what I mean when I talk about End of the Year lists changing. This wouldn’t be here then, and that’s the beauty of being late for everything.

Don’t forget to get the album on iTunes.

24. Escape Plan (逃跑计划) – Earth (世界)

First cheat of the list.

Escape Plan is a relatively low-key band in Mainland China that suddenly had a hit song titled Brightest Star in the Night Sky (夜空中最亮的星) when it was sung by a couple of people on television singing contests. At the time of posting, the song on Xiami has over 29M reproductions.

Why is this a cheat? The album was released on December 31st, 2011. According to the information on Xiami… so basically a 2012 release. You can get it there.

  1. i just found Your blog because Your name was attached to Tété’s. You are my new connection to finding great music. i was checking to see who else likes Tété. my wife may go on tour with him in the fall of 2015 when he will releases his new album. i wanted to find someone who could review her music. Your music selections were so good i got distracted and started exploring all the artist You like. It may break my bank.

    […] 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]. […]
