YES! Adult Jazz and Eagulls are both being severely overlooked this year, and Sylvan Esso was also really great (P.S., see them live).
Also, I’m really confused by that Pup record. I swear I heard that in like October of 2013 and it was on my list last year. Was it released this year?
I feel the same. I really like both albums for completely different reasons, but Simpson’s album is far and away the better album.
YES. Top 10 album for me all the way.
Agree with you on that FlyLo. That’s the best Fusion Jazz record I’ve heard in years. Those first 5 tracks are just incredible.
That’s Record Store Day releases for you. You have to get them super early the day they come out or you don’t get them at all.
Aaaaand it’s gone before I could hear it…
The problem is that I’m guessing the labels are getting much more cash than the artists themselves
Benji’s an album that’s pretty preoccupied with death, so I’m assuming an ad for hard liquor would make more sense.
Still desperately waiting for an El-P produced Despot album…or just about any Despot album.
That is my favorite editor’s choice of all time.
