@@@ 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

@@@ 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
@@@ 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
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
@@@ 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
