Foo Fighters can do no wrong in my eyes. “Concrete and Gold” has been no exception.
Perfume Genius is a raw talent that continues to impress me with each release.
Haim has made a real name for themselves in a brief period of time. These sisters somehow find magic in their unique and simplistic melodies.
Ladies and gentlemen – Now introducing the #1 album of 2016….
Anderson Paak’s Malibu!
I don’t even know where to start. This album is laced with musical diversity. It’s fun and exciting and musically stellar.
The guy can play instruments, sing, and rap with the best of them. It makes for a pretty marvelous record.
Congrats, Anderson Paak!
Under normal circumstances, this album would be the best album of the year. It’s short and to the point, but beautiful throughout.
But this year wasn’t normal. There was another masterpiece of an album that ended up beating this one out.
If there could be co-#1’s, Bon Iver would share in that award. But 22, A Million is #2 this year instead.
I’ve been putting my flag in Thomston for a few years now. He’s been on my radar as the most exciting new artist for as long as he’s been releasing music.
I was anxiously anticipating his first full-length album. And here it is in Topograph.
Is it great? Absolutely. Is it as incredible as I hoped? Maybe not.
But it’s hard to deny that he has one of the coolest voices out there right now. I suspect he’ll grow his fanbase after his next release. Producers seem to just have a little more work to do with him.
