Music for 12/7/16!!! Car Seat Headrest, Frankie Cosmos, Whitney, Hamilton Leithauser and Rostam

@@@ Car Seat Headrest: Teens in Denial (Matador, 2016). I’m peeping the Pitchfork top 100 records of 2016 and I feel like I don’t give much respect to indie rock. 567 more words

Music for 12/6/16!!! Meshuggah, High Spirits, Khemmis, Psalm Zero

@@@ Meshuggah: The Violent Sleep of Reason (Nuclear Blast, 2016). We gotta counteract all that soft NPR style music I’ve been peeping on Ted Gioia’s best of 2016. 549 more words

Music for 12/5/16!!! Sierra Hull, Laura Mvula, Tkettle, AJ Tracey

@@@ Sierra Hull: Weighted Mind (Rounder, 2016).  Progressive bluegrass off Ted Gioia’s best of 2016 list.  I’m digging the opening tune with the plinky banjo working with and against the long upright bass tones.  461 more words

2016 Honorable Mention Pick 18

Destruction Unit: Negative Feedback Resistor (Sacred Bones, 2015).

Definitely one of the most blasted out heavy psych records you will ever encounter. Beyond distorted guitars, distorted vocals, a filthy sewer bass, it’s really about a full blast of energy here. 53 more words

2016 Honorable Mention Pick 19

6Lack: Free 6Lack (Interscope, 2016)

6Lack (pronounced black) has some of the best hip hop/r&b sounds going this year. Really abstract and beautiful shit that floats and pulsates and hovers over the skittery beats you get from musicians down South. 98 more words

2016 Honorable Mention Pick 21

Noura Mint Seymali: Arbina (Glitterbeat, 2016).

I love this West African outfit. Seymali is a singing giant and her husband is totally boss on the guitar. 191 more words

Music for 12/1/16!!! Hannah Epperson, L.A. Salami, Train

@@@ Hannah Epperson: Upsweep (Listenrecords, 2016). This record is high up on Ted Gioia’s best of 2016 list. It’s highbrow chamber pop/indie. I feel fairy wings sprouting on my back as I listen. 391 more words
