Best of 2012: Pop Music w/ Ross Rudolph

Written by on December 28, 2012

What makes great, relevant, topical, analgesic, intriguing pop music? Innovation. Disregard to pretense. Interesting takes on the past. New visions for the future. Here is a list of artists that brought something new to the table this year and created beautifully cohesive albums. Each one takes its own ambitious approach combining, twisting, creating new genres and applies it to the age-old art of honest songwriting.
