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 DunesFreedom
  • Kacey MusgravesGolden Hour
  • MitskiBe the Cowboy
  • US GirlsIn A Poem Unlimited

World got you on edge? Feeling anxious, angry, confused and ready to act up? You are not alone and you are right. I may have the antidote or at least the accompanying soundtrack. A bit of raw, post-puck, electronic noise-rock, blah, blah – labels – hah!

  • Fucked UpDoes Your Dreams
  • IdlesJoy As An Act Of Resistance
  • Parquet CourtsWide Awake!
  • ShameSongs of Praise
  • The 1975A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships

Sure the sound can be retro, jangly Neil Young/Byrds and a bit samey at times BUT it gets my foot tapping, makes me feel swoony, & basically I start grooving. Yes, it’s a master class in multi-tracking that would make Jeff Lynne or Tom Scholz green with envy, and that’s just fine with me.

  • Israel NashLifted

Sure, just from the concept, song construction and theme behind this album I was ready to love it still it exceeded my expectations. It tears me up – in both senses of the word.

  • Mary GauthierRifles & Rosary Beads

    At times sparse then just enough layered fuzz, strings, harmonies distortion, etc and an omnipresent rhythm section driving and soaring to match the sometimes plain yet always poignant lyrics making each song magic.

    • Lucy DacusHistorian
    • Soccer MommyClean
    • Snail MailLush

    Complex, orchestral, jazzish compositions and although challenging at times in their seeming… meandering, well worth investing time unpeeling and exploring. Akin to a soundtrack to a Bjorkish fairlyland struggling with it’s identity. Huh?

    • Julia HolterAviary

    MUSIC – HONORABLE MENTION

    • Arctic Monkeys – Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino
    • Beach House7
    • The BethsFuture Me Hates Me
    • Brandy CarlileBy The Way, I Forgive You

    • First Aid KitRuins
    • IceageBeyondless
    • John ColtraneBoth Directions at Once: The Lost Album

    • Neneh CherryBroken Politics
    • SuperchunkWhat A Time To Be Alive
