Camille's Best of 2012


Sorry. I've been slow on the music front, but better late than never, eh?

  • Frank Ocean - Channel Orange -  kinda 'nuff said. Last year from summer onwards belonged to this dude.
  • Jessie Ware - Devotion -  understated and beautiful. I think she is gonna catch her stride stateside this year, but I was up on her from last year due to that excellent Disclosure remix. While not on the album, Valentine, her 2011 track with SBTRKT collaborator Sampha (who I LOVE!) has been on heavy rotation round these parts as of late.  
  • Jack White - Blunderbuss - surprised this didn't get more accolades. I literally had difficulty turning it off for much of the year. Rocks super hard!
  • Santigold - Master of My Make Believe - this album got in by a hair. There is something about Santi that I find to be...I don't want to say false...but hmm, I feel like she is holding back in a lot of ways. I hope her best is yet to come, but I'd be lying if I said I didn't listen to this album a fair amount over the past year.
