Jammy SY is my favorite SY so I'm stoked for this. I'm in the weird subset of fans that has no interest in a reunion, which would seem pretty weird to me, but I'm very excited to hear what's in the archives.
Terror Twilight Deluxe Reissue, or, Pavement's Chinese Democracy
Prepare to be bombarded with downvotes from Stereogum's Stone Sour hive.
I'm so happy cuz today I found my friends and they are bats
Barry seems to legitimately love Courtney Barnett judging by how often she pops up in these lists. (Btw, I feel like "things take time" didn't really get a fair shake—it's great. Then again I'm in the distinct minority that prefers "tell me how you really feel" to "sometimes I sit...").
I've really been enjoying Cape Cod Cottage by the Brendan Elder Ensemble. A deeply pleasant listen.
Michael Hurley is a true original, one of our greatest living songwriters. I'll be excited to have this in my hands as soon as the USPS allows it. By the way, if any of you have the opportunity to see him play live, jump on it. I went to one of his shows just a little over three years ago and it was one of the most delightful and life-affirming experiences I've ever had.
After further thought, here are some others that also deserve mention: Marisa Anderson/William Tyler; Brendan Elder Ensemble; Mega Bog; Rosali; Bill MacKay/Nathan Bowles; Courtney Barnett; Sam Gendel/Sam Wilkes; Chuck Johnson; Phil Cook, probably others I'm forgetting. Music's great.
That Mega Bog album is great, was definitely in the mix for me.
Here's my top, um, 12? Why not. A lot of great music has come out in the past two months that I'm still catching up with. Kinda feel bad that these year-end lists give short shrift to that stuff. Pretty sure I'll end up listening to the new Michael Hurley and Jeff Parker albums as much as anything, but so it goes. 1) The Weather Station—Ignorance 2) Yasmin Williams—Urban Driftwood 3) Matt Sweeney & Bonnie “Prince” Billy—Superwolves 4) Steve Gunn—Other You 5) Green-House—Songs for Living Spaces 6) Mdou Moctar—Afrique Victime 7) Nathan Salsburg—Psalms 8) Dinosaur Jr.—Sweep it into Space 9) The War on Drugs—I Don’t Live Here Anymore 10) Hayden Pedigo—Letting Go 11) Wau Wau Collectif—Yaral sa Doom 12) Grouper—Shade
Rain drop Drop top I'd like to introduce you to my friend, Jack Antonoff
Given the state of, well, everything, they might as well have called this fest "Maybe Partying Will Help."
Maybe the chorus to "Violet" was actually her view of what the tax rate for the highest earners should be.
As a fun-loving person, I often amuse myself/ruin titles by changing the second noun in a "noun of noun" title to an attributive noun, i.e. "Rain Buckets" or "Thrones Game."
