Best of 2015Last we presented positions 35-14 of what I think were the best albums in 2016. Today we continue with that business and we present Top 13 best albums this year. It doesn’t mean that these any worse than the ones we will put in top 13, it’s just a matter of personal taste. This year was not an easy one, but it brought us some records that will stay with us for many years I think. The top part of the list is reserved some some incredible comebacks (Sylvia Juncosa, Dinosaur Jr, Jody Stephens), new comers (Honeymoon Disease, Honey, Blaak Heat, Connections). But the album that marked year from me, is Julie Christensen’s new project Stone Cupid. She sang better than ever, on a record that is rocking, grungy and rootsy at the same time. A killer span of genres that can only be brought by one of the Divine Horsemen. Dive into my selection of the top 13 records and hopefully you will find something for yourself. See you next year!
