Best of 2012 from gals I want to get with and/or be friends with!

Semi controversial post (or not), but decided to post it, as it is mostly harmless, and I am a single guy!

Of course I would love to say Rihanna or Lana Del Rey was my girlfriend (although I have no idea what they are like in person), but with many such female musicians I would just love to hang out with them too!

Marina and the Diamonds – Electra Heart

I am pretty sure this was my most anticipated release of 2012, and it delivered! I like The Family Jewels slightly better, however I still really enjoy the very electronic nature of her second album, and how she hyped it with the videos:

♡ PART 1: FEAR AND LOATHING ♡
♡ PART 2: RADIOACTIVE ♡
♡ PART 3: “THE ARCHETYPES” ♡
♡ PART 4: “PRIMADONNA” ♡
♡ PART 5: “SU-BARBIE-A” ♡
♡ PART 6: “POWER & CONTROL” ♡
♡ PART 7: “HOW TO BE A HEARTBREAKER” ♡

A very much anticipated album by all. I am quite impressed by her as a person, she seems very humble, and she put off getting into music full-time while going to university. Read my artist profile guest post over at LadyIndie.com, and my concert review on this blog (spoiler alert, see her live!!).

I saw her at Pop Montreal 2011, she is just as good looking as her pics would suggest! Oh, the music is good too! And Canadian!

Santigold – Master of My Make-Believe

Another collection of great songs, especially my fave at the moment, “Disparate Youth”.

Lead singer Shingai Shoniwa is the full package, beautiful, talented, awesome voice, songwriter and so on. Their third album.

Lana Del Rey – Born to Die

Not an utterly amazing album, but stylistically very impressive in that she and the music very much feels like a throwback to a bygone era.

More (but with no words):

Lianne La Havas – Is Your Love Big Enough

I know I am missing a lot, and there are plenty of albums I have not even heard in full, such as Cold Specks, Esperanza Spalding, Kimbra, etc. etc etc!

Even more after the jump:

She shaved her head in support of raising awareness to breast cancer, that is real badass!

I also posted this as I am curious as to whether I will end up on largehearted boy’s 2012 Year-End Online Music Lists!
