2012 has definitely been an improvement over 2011, brilliant new talents have emerged like Michael Kiwanuka, Azealia Banks, Jessie Ware, Alt-J, Lana Del Rey and many others. 2013 is looking really promising with artists like Laura Mvula, Little Green Cars, AlunaGeorge, King Krule and Tom Odell. Starting with the worthy mentions, here is my selections of favourites for this year.
The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.
Here’s an excerpt:
19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 100,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
Lana Del Rey has announced the details of her new single.
The singer/songwriter will release “Cola” as the second single from her mini-album, “Paradise,” out now via Universal Music Group / Interscope Records.
The follow-up to “Ride” was written by Lana Del Rey along with Rick Nowels, who also teamed up with the artist on “Born to Die” tracks “Dark Paradise,” “Summertime Sadness,” “Body Electric” and “Lucky Ones.”
Good choice. Cola is one of the cooler tracks from "Paradise" and definitely deserves a release.
I love that Lana is always releasing these little promo videos of some of her album tracks. This one is for "Bel Air", a track of her fantastic "Paradise" EP and I really love this song. It's very dreamy, almost Enya-like. Awesome track.
Ich habe es mir mit diesem Blog auch zur Aufgabe gemacht, auf diesem Blog immer wieder Bilder-Zusammenfassungen zu veröffentlichen. Vor allem von StreetArt und den Künstlern, die mir immer wieder "begegnen". Straßenkunst, die mir besonders gut gefällt und die auffällig gut ist. So verhält es sich auch beim StreetArtist Decycle. Sein "Spraygirl", das ich Ende letzten Jahres in Düsseldorf zum ersten Mal gesehen habe, war ja nicht zuletzt ein Stein des Anstoßes für meine Begeisterung für die Kunstrichtung und die Motivation, stets die Augen nach StreetArt offen zu halten.
Rihanna's gone and done it again, embracing our ears with her 7th studio album 'Unapologetic'. Having listened to a fair few times, I can definitely say it is her most urban album to date. If you're looking for the pop hits of 'We Found Love' and 'Only Girl in the World', then this probably isn't for you. Let's get started…
I wanted to do my own review, but I mostly agree with Bright like a Diamond's one. The album is definitely more interesting and experimental than "Talk that Talk" which is a positive thing, because I really got tired of Rihanna's last album after only a few weeks. I can't agree with the rating yet, because I haven't listened to the record that much, but so far outstanding for me (after 2 listens) are "Jump", "Diamonds", "What now".
No Doubt took to the UK X Factor stage this weekend to perform their new single "Looking Hot," the second song off of their Push and Shove album. The performance comes just after the group decided to pull their controversial "Looking Hot" music video from the web.

Green Day have officially announced the cancellation of their final 2012 tour dates due to lead singer Billie Joe Armstrong's current rehab stay. Additionally, the band plans to postpone and reschedule their 2013 tour.
“Obviously the timing for this isn’t ideal, but Billie Joe’s well-being is our main concern,” said Mike Dirnt. “We are happy to say that Billie Joe is doing well, and we want to thank you all for the outpouring of support and well wishes that we have received, and we can’t wait to see you all again soon."
