Andrew’s 2012 Retrospective

Hey, folks. Happy National Hangover Day! I hope that you’ve recovered a bit from the festivities last night. If you’re still riding the struggle bus, hopefully I can make your day a little bit better.

Trying to compile, list, and rank my top music was a monumental task this year. I’ve been at it for weeks and it hasn’t been easy. The lists have changed more times than George Lewis Jr.’s hairstyle, and the tinkering was going on until right before I wrote this post. While you certainly get a taste of my musical inclinations every Tuesday, I only have one day each week to share. Inside, you’ll find my top albums, songs (complete with a Spotify playlist of them), and all sorts of other stuff. This includes the brand new category of “Worst Music News of the Year” thanks to a recent development in the hip hop community and a picture of me in a cowboy hat with a terrible pun attached. I was also finally able to declare a favorite song of all time. What’s not to love? This year it’s bigger and better, so read on after the jump, homies.

‘Sound Bottle’ captures audio, automates the remix
Re: Sound Bottle is a music creation device like no other. Designed by a student at Japan’s Tama Art University, it’s a bottle-shaped device that captures and plays back sounds. Operation seems startlingly simple: to record a sound, you simply uncork the bottle and, so long as noise is detected, it’ll record and store the sounds as a sample.
