PoOPlists 2018

Tom Whalen Poop 2018

My proper top 10 just so happened to split neatly into five metal records and five non-metal records. I know this seems kind of precious but this is how it worked out, honestly. Overall top three highlighted in parenthesis. I added five “discoveries”, non-2018 releases in thick rotation for me throughout the year. I’m calling this The Mike Watt List–one of Watt’s many sage chestnuts is “it’s new if it’s new to you”, and generally I jump at any chance…



Dan Wilmer Poop 2018

Thirteen Albums for 2018     Buy New or Used via Amazon    Rent via iTunes [?] 1. Car Seat Headrest – Twin Fantasy. With Twin Fantasy, Car Seat Headrest re-recorded an early-career opus. More than a re-release, it’s been totally transformed and really marks the first time this music is reaching ears beyond Bandcamp groupies. For me, it’s a revelation of soaring melodies, shout-along choruses and rocking guitar riffs. Classic rock influences are worn proudly throughout, such as the Kinks, The…


Matt Nerney Poop 2018

M.Nerney : POOP 2018 Well, it’s the end of an era. Printed POOP has come to an end. While I lament the fact, it doesn’t really surprise. I won’t go into a full-on screed against technology, but I will say that I’ll deeply miss the physical manifestation of all our rants and raves. So thank you, Mark, for all of the years of toil, trouble and hard nagging that you put in to bring this motley crew of music obsessives…


Mike Jurkovic Poop 2018

purposely obtuse obfuscation points (christmas letter) 2018 One of the many blessings of this time of year is the chance it gives me to connect with you, my friends, family, and fellow poopers. So save for an exquisite month w/the missus in England and Ireland, (even if were were strolling towards Churchill’s War Room that August morn of the London terrorist act); my book, Blue Fan Whirring being published; swift kicking Faso in the balls, Calling All Poets entering its…


Michael Hodgkiss Poop 2018

POOP/1979/2018-Michael C. Hodgkiss Every January since 1965 my brother, KEVIN PATRICK* and I would exchange lists of our favorite albums of the year. We both had eclectic tastes for teens. He tried to steer me toward MOTOWN records while I dragged him through Anglophile and English blues related groups. After we secured each others lists we would search far and wide to find published lists to see which of us garnered more points in the standings,that being determined by point…


Andrew Martin Poop 2018

2018….I’ve got music on my teeth….     Buy New or Used via Amazon DJ Koze – Knock Knock – Easily the best and most upbeat record of the year. Koze knows no bounds and moves gracefully between futuristic R & B, hip-hop, techno, and indie guitar musings on an album that ties together the vocal talents of so many varied and talented singers. The album is irrepressible and funny and optimistic in a time of so much global dread and…


Rich Allen Poop 2018

Favorite Things ~ 2018 ALBUMS     Bandcamp    Rent via iTunes [?] Somni ~ Bloom (Friends of Friends) Bloom is the perfect summer album, reflecting the open road, the ocean breeze, the sand and the surf. Sequenced as a single mix, the music recalls Botany’s Lava Diviner and Night Shift’s Trespasser’s Guide, while bringing something new to the table as well. By choosing sounds associated with happiness (whistling, waves, wind chimes), the artist paints an aural picture to match the cover…


Fix Poop 2018

FIX RAMBLES ABOUT 2018 STUFF MUSIC Here’s my list in no particular order though I often alphabetically group the LP’s because that made sense to me. At times shiny and quirky while other times uncomfortable and buzzy; always satisfying and intriguing. I know what you’re asking, this grouping makes no sense… hey, it’s my list. Amen Dunes – Freedom Kacey Musgraves – Golden Hour Mitski – Be the Cowboy US Girls – In A Poem Unlimited World got you on…
