The sound of 2011 recap: fanni

2011 has been one hell of a crazy ride in all parts of this life of mine and a just-as-crazy amount of amazing music has delivered the soundtrack to all the craziness. (Plus crazy seems to be my favourite word of the year.) Starting this blog together with my favourite Berliner Julia has allowed slash forced me to spend hours and hours and hours on discovering new sounds, talking to bands and planning shows and I’ve loved every bit of it. Sue me, this is making me nostalgic like shit. So here’s the essence of what my year sounded like. Full of highs and lows.
