A 2012 wrap it up and move on.
Being honest here, I have no desire to do a year-end recap, to blog about what we blogged about, what we listened to in 2012. I admit and accept that 2012 was a slow for us on Beat & Lyric….maybe we were busy? Maybe we were lazy? Maybe we just didn’t have the desire to chit chat about music?
I will say my year was consumed by Jack White. If you have 75 minutes to spare watch Conan’s sit-down with Jack here – http://teamcoco.com/video/serious-jibber-jabber-04-jack-white

I tried not to list stuff that I blogged about. Obviously I over-listened to Jack White, Ryan Star and Hesta Prynn, Florence + The Machine, to name a few I blogged about this year. I had a iPhone/iPod/iTunes malfunction part way through the year and had to re-load everything. I’m sure there is a song or two floating out there that I missed.
Cheers and here is to a promise of more music blogging in 2013.
