Records I Enjoyed in 2018
(no particular order)

The Internet “Hive Mind”
Jorja Smith “Lost And Found”
Let’s Eat Grandma “I’m All Ears”
Florence + The Machine “High As Hope”
Idles “Joy As An Act Of Resistance”
Paul McCartney “Egypt Station
Robyn “Honey”
Janelle Monae “Dirty Computer”
Khadja Bonet “Child Queen”
Gaz Coombes “World’s Strongest Man”
Courtney Barnett “Tell Me How You Really Feel”
Jon Hopkins “Singularity”

Concert Of The Year: Orbital at Brooklyn Steel. The brothers first NY gig in 15 years. Who ever thought I could EVER be so 1994???

Disappointing Concert(s) Of The Year
: St. Etienne, twice, in Brooklyn and Montreal. So much of “Good Humor” was not meant to be played live and it showed like a worn pair of pants. And with all of her on-stage charm, I had to wonder if Sarah Cracknell should hang it up. #outoftune

Most Anticipated Tour Of 2019: The Mekons, of course. My disfunctional family of choice, straight outta Chicago. My biggest question: why are tickets 15 pounds in London and 35 dollars in Brooklyn? (Answer: they are American now).

Overwrought, over-discussed, just over & over forever award: Bruce Springsteen on Broadway, Bruce Springsteen’s book, Bruce & endless Bruce. The whole thing “stinks of zen,” even though I am an original fan (saw “Darkness” tour at MSG). Bruce gets depressed, Bruce is friendly to motorcycle riders who rescue him, Bruce can play the same show 6938 times in a row, Bruce is the champion of the working class—but you better have $2000 to see him play. ENOUGH! (Next he will get serious props for not liking Trump.)
