This isn`t really a good measure of what I listed to this year. I was out of a computer for about three months, and where I live has a tenacious connection to the Internet at best so I can`t keep as up-to-date with music as I would like. But this is my annual tradition, so here we go.
1. THE BAWDIES
Solely based on their look, I didn`t think that I would like them. I was wrong. Roy`s English pronunciation from the debut to the present has massively improved (from `uhhh, this is English, right?` to `oh, these are cute lyrics!`). I prefer the CD recordings to their live performances because the CD version sounds more polished. I don`t know why, but when I saw them live, the tempo of their songs seemed slower and the lyrics were slurred together (They essentially admitted they were hungover though, so that is may be the answer).
2. Frank Ocean
Liked him before he came out, thanks for asking. Nostalgia/Ultra is simply amazing and `American Wedding` is a genius piece of storytelling. …
