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!

Leonard CohenSadly, in the past week we lost three important characters in this play we call rock’n'roll. Leonard Cohen, Leon Russell and Billy Miller. Leonard and Leo need no description, but Billy Miller might not be well known to a casual rock consumer. Yet, he was one of the founders of Norton Records – a greatly influential label in the past 20 years or so that brought us many of the hidden rock gems. In addition to that we hear new music from Štajner Bend in Zagreb, Croatia, Bad Beats, from Vancouver, Doyle Bramhall II and James McMurtry, both from Texas. Also we introduce The Mobbs in UK and Happiness – an offshoot of Deer Tick lead by brothers Chris and Dennis Ryan.
