    I need some new tunes and I think I heard 3 last year – Help me people……!
    One small caveat(tough) but no Dino releated projects! My game 🙂

    **Also I’m cheating a bit as I didn’t know Far had released a studio album in 2010 and I only found out via a Jonah Matranga tweet about items he was selling, So I did not listen to any new albums apart from dino stuff………So I will have to go with something classic.

    1- Single – Johnny Flynn – Lady is Risen 2012 (new)

    2 – Far – Really Here Water & Solutions 1998 (rediscovered – top 5 album!!)

    Best non-Dino albums I bought in 2012:

    Neil Young–Psychedelic Pill
    Lee Ranaldo–Between the Times and the Tides
    MV & EE–Space Homestead
    Bird By Snow–Offering
    Bob Dylan–Tempest

    ed. I forgot to mention a single, maybe not the best, but it got me on an Everly Brothers kick; stoked to hear the rest of their covers:

    Bonnie Prince Billy and Dawn McCarthy–Christmas Eve Can Kill You

    They sing great together, the recording is pure, and Lara’s video is sweet; she’s a master of the Peter Weir sun and leaf shimmer, among other things.

    Also, for those who’ve not listened yet, the first song on Psychedelic Pill is 27+ minutes long. Woohoo! My people.
