Sorting dates to have the same months for different years next to each other

I need to run a report and show data for the last 2 year (24 months) per month. This means when I run the report at the end of July 2015, it should show data from August 2013 - July 2015. The sorting should look like this:
Aug 2013
Aug 2014
Sep 2013
Sep 2014
Dec 2013
Dec 2014
Jan 2014
Jan 2015
Jun 2014
Jun 2015
Jul 2014
Jul 2015

Any idea of how I can make this happen without having my report taking hours to run?
