Top Music for 2016

It’s that time of year again, time to review my favorite music from the year.  This last twelve months has been particularly difficult to strum through due to not having Last.fm on my phone since March.  Last.fm keeps track of all your played music retroactively, however lately I’ve been playing significantly more music through my […]

Top Albums of 2015

Every year, I write about my favorite music from the previous twelve months (here is last year).  It’s actually a pretty tough task, I buy somewhere around 40-50 albums a year.  Most of them are forgettable, but certain albums stick around and get a lot of rotations.  Some even turn into life long albums.  Some […]

Favorite EPs All Time

I haven’t written about music in some time and was thinking about EPs yesterday.  Here’s a quick run down of my favorite EPs of all time. It should be noted that I don’t usually buy EPs that are derivative of a greater work.  Often bands will make an EP out of one or two songs […]

Top Albums of 2011

It’s that time of year again.  But I have left myself very little time to think about the best music of 2011.  Luckily I have a Last.fm page that covers my last 12 months.  I don’t know if I’ll do 10 albums this year or not.  There seems to be a backlash against the year […]

the Mountain Goats

One day, after all is said and done and I have all albums by John Darnielle, I’ll write an exposition on the importance and interest of his select works. For now, I’ll say that his music is quickly rivaling Dylan in it’s importance to me. Alas, there can never be another Dylan, but Darnielle’s work […]
