2015 End of year round up

Julia Holter seems to have cleaned up the medias album of the year awards although it seems to have passed me by.

Spent the early part of the year catching up on last year's purchases. The Swans album is awesome

This year I've been listening to and enjoying mostly older stuff. Best of the Czars, a live album from Phosphorescent, a Mogwai collection, Sleater Kinney, Sturgill Simpson and Richard Dawson plus a 16 album box set of John Lee Hooker, mainly 60s stuff.

Two of my fave new albums haven't even been mentioned in uncut or mojo and they are the Sons of Bill and Decemberists.

Ryley walker, Kurt Vile ,Courtney Barnett, Titus Andronicus, Sun Kill Moon, Jason Isbell, Wolf Alice, Songhoy Blues, Father John Misty, Mathew E White and Ryan Bingham  top my list but I think the Surfjan Stevens album is simply staggering and my top new album of the year. Also out that sound fantastic but I haven't given them a good enough listening yet are the Bill Ryder-Jones (Ex coral) album, Low's and Robert Fosters new one.  

Probably missed a few like but there ya go

I've been impressed with Courtney Barnett, Lonelady and Everything Everything.

Radio 6 banned again at work. Classic 80s.  
Butts

Definitely Sufjan Stevens for me, a massive head and shoulders above everything I've heard this year. Next best would be New Order.

Honourable mentions to Anjaleena Presley, John Grant, Car Seat Headrest, My Morning Jacket, Neil Young, Protomartyr, Wilco, Allison Moorer.

Top 4 gigs - Young Fathers, Sufjan Stevens, Lee Bains III and the Glory Fires, Simple Minds.
Cutsyke

Can't get into that new Wilco one. Album of the year for me is Kid Wave's.
Late Doors

Yeah, the Wilco album not really got into me ....yet

Gig of the year for me is Sturgill Simpson at the Brude. Ezra Furman was great as well but the one that still glows was Courtney Barnett at Green Man

I read a review of the Nashville Obsolete album in Mojo last summer and liked the sound of it. I ran the Dave Rawlings name past Gambo when we were all in The Angel last time we were all out and he said that anything DR is associated with is usually worth checking out.

He has a solo album before this one and has worked with people like Bright Eyes and Ryan Adams. Also long time musical collaborator and beau of the brilliant Gillian Welch (who is also on the album).

Its Southern Gothic but at the same time really sweet sounding country. He's a really good songwriter. He's a great singer and musician, and his voice reminds me a bit of some of the singing on The Jayhawks 'Sound of Lies' album. Might have remembered that totally wrong but that was what sprung to mind when I heard it. It's a great album, and I think 'Short Haired Woman Blues' isn't just one of the best country songs I've heard, I think it's one of the best songs I've ever heard full stop. It's soars above any genre specification for me personally.

And last but not least its a pretty wicked album cover as well.

Think that's everything.

Wow, cheers D and on the strength of that alone i will be adding it to my hole filling jumbo record vouchers retirement stash (along with that Gene Clarke thing Butts). Steinbeck for the ears as well, sound fab.

You're welcome Bull, should post more about music really so i will now i realise someone is actually reading it
