Well damn. It only seemed like it was yesterday that we were ringing in the New Year. Now we’re already a full month into 2012 and it’s been a rather interesting time for music so far. We had Jay-Z and Beyonce’s baby Coachella selling out in mere hours, and a certain hipster pop star creating controversy on SNL. But enough of that, January was about the music here on The Couch Sessions, and this month provided some excellent selections. Whether it’s the Jay/Pharrell track “Glory,” Nigerian rap from Blink, or the sultry Lianne La Havas, the month had something for everyone. Full tracklisting below.
