Christina's Favorites of 2012

Posted by on Saturday, December 15, 2012

No big surprises here. Some of my favorite bands and musicians released new music this year, which is always exciting. I haven't posted this due to the nagging feeling that I have forgotten plenty. I am a forgetful person. Also, I keep discovering music. It never ends. However, these are the things that kept me company throughout the year. Thanks, music and things. 
 Love, Christina
