by Rob Harvilla | August 14, 2012
We have reached the electrifying conclusion of Rhapsody Radar 2012, our annual survey of 25 up-and-coming artists we've fallen in love with, from blog-beloved rappers to Latin pop heartthrobs, heartland metalheads to bubbly Christian rock queens. For rapturous words on all this year's honorees, go here, but if you'd like a quick and dirty sampler, here's a monster playlist that touches on them all, from L.A. emcee Kendrick Lamar's anthemic "The Recipe" to doom-folkie Cold Specks' chilling "When the City Lights Dim" and everything in between, including songs named "Wake Bake Skate," "Cocainium" and "Love Bites (So Do I)." Get familiar.
