Lisa Mychols

We start today with two albums full of good pop tunes (each in its own way) from the last year’s production, that somehow fell through the cracks. We know both performers well, Lisa Mychols from the early episodes of The Little Lighthouse and Bad Moves from the more recent episodes. Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever have a new single, The Schramms are back together with the new record. Those Pretty Wrongs have a new single out, and so does Sheer Mag. Over in Yugolands, we check out Autopark with a cover of a legendary Boye song. Replacements are preparing a new repackaging of Don’t Tell A Soul and we check out one of the tunes from it.

Flashlite #465 – The Best Albums in 2017 (Part One)

Best of 2017The Little Lighthouse presents best albums in 2017. A good way to usher the new year is to put together a list of best albums in the previous one. We’ve been doing this for a long time with more or less discipline, but the criteria is always personal and the lists simply collects albums that I’ve kept coming back to most frequently. This time we cover positions 35-15 and tune in next week for the top 14. Today we cover one of four albums that was put together by the productive and controversial Matthew Melton (Warm Soda), heavier rock records from The Obsessed, Elder, Motorpsycho All The Witches and Ruby The Hatchet show a modern approach to head banging, twisted Americana of Ethan Daniel Davidson, Yawpers and My Buddy Moose represent a fresh approach to a genre that needs reinvention badly. Strong lyrical works from Daniel Romano and John Wesley Coleman III are the best to enjoy while reading and musing on the inner sleeves. Bully, Lost Balloons, Sheer Mag, Needles//Pins show that indie rock still has something to say. Beautiful vocals of Dead Rock West are to admire. Ty Segall had an album of his career. Baby Shakes simply have short and fun record that makes you wanna play on and on. Newcomers Improbables and experienced Golden Boys hail from their garages with high octane garage rock and of all experiments from King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard, their Microtonal Banana was the most fun.
