Eric Fine Poop 2015

Brothers and sisters, we survived another year on this planet. The best thing I can say about 2015 is that it is behind us. No looking back from here – blue skies ahead.

Steve Kaplan Poop 2015

New to me in 2015 What is new to me in 2015? To start with POOP! This is my first contribution to this fine collection of POOP Lists from many respected and/or otherwise music nerds! I’ve known many POOP contributors for more than 20 years and I’m glad somehow I have now managed to make the ranks! 2015 had some gems in it. It also revealed some gems from recent years as well. This list for me is the best…

Tom Whalen Poop 2015

As with Sun Kil Moon last year, a single, sharp voice made the year for me—Father John Misty’s album is all at once great entertainment, giddy yet devastating satire, somber true-life folk. New friend Barnett and old friend Finn took me similar places, small stories, less-than-small stakes, real voices. The deservingly ubiquitous Lamar album totally mystified me at first but was impossible to shake off, blossoming the more I played it and talked about it.

John Stewart Poop 2015

Once again I struggle to find a Top 10 list for new albums. Because lets face it? I am not impressed by much. I really get tired of getting attacked for not being a poptimist. Yes I love rock music and rock music in my opinion is worth preserving. So if my top 10 list features old farts on it like Keith Richards, David Gilmour, Jeff Lynne and Lemmy? So be it…

How Signing a Major Record Deal Nearly Destroyed My Music Career

Terra Patrick has a fascinating story at Digital Music News laying out the details of how she used her authenticity to build a following on YouTube and then watched the label wreck it… … the mandate that came from my team at the label. They needed me to be “less accessible” and more untouchable. All these kids on YouTube saw me as an equal, as “one of them” – did I want to be a YouTube star, or did I…
