…2011 was the still flapping body of a beheaded reptile
Taking part in the music-bloggers guild, our ears come across at least dozens of tracks annually, through various channels. This doesn’t even include the music we come across incidentally, via television, radio, walking past a noisy bar while the door is being opened, the Balkan sounds that waft through the air like the smell of horrible cooking from the neighbors’ balcony as she hangs up the laundry.
As members of the music-bloggers guild we observe a variety of incidents and events throughout the year that, naturally, range across the full spectrum of human experience.
We have synthesized this clusterfuck of chance encounters with sound and experience to create the personalized list below. I’d just like to point that out, before finally closing the door on this year, which continues to skimp along till the last minute like the still flapping body of a beheaded reptile.
