The Best of 2019 Pt 3; Flashlite #570

2019pt3

Part three of our list of best albums in 2019! Today we review some albums which did not make it to our top 30, which may probably just be the lack of my own attention. But before that, I’ve noticed that a whole bunch of good albums were shorter than 30 minutes this year, which is an interesting phenomenon. Albums were too long when we switched formats from LP to CD, but with less than 30 minutes, they seem to be a little too short. Back in the day, those would be classified as Mini LPs. So, today we also check the list of best Mini Albums, all of which were pretty hot last year. At the top of that list is Gyasi.

Flashlite #360 – The Best Albums in 2015 (Part One)

Best of 2015Today we begin our traditional review of the best records at the Little Lighthouse in the past year. Although “the best” should be understood in a very limited way. These records is basically just a very personal selection of new music that stuck with me this year. It may not be the best, but it somehow resonated in my mind. The time will tell whether these records will last longer than one season, but I definitely tend to go back to the stuff that I liked.

The list this year has 25 titles, and we first cover the bottom end of the list. The next week is 2016 and we will cover the top 10. This was a good year for the music from ex-Yugoslavia. We have two bands in the lower part of the list (Vlasta Popić and Bernays Propaganda). One more title will be covered next week. It was also a good year for Swedish bands. This year we have Ghost and Bäddat För Trubbel. Australians are traditionally welcome on our list(Zerodent, Paul Kelly and one more next week). Memphis, Austin, Detroit and San Francisco still rule in the US. Looking forward to 2016 – hopefully with even more surprises for the new generations of rockers…

Sweet Apple – I Surrender;
The Bevis Frond – Second Son;
Paul Kelly – Where Were You When I Needed You (With Clairy Browne);
The Yawpers – Walter;
Vlasta Popić – O vodi;
The Ghost – From The Pinnacle To The Pit;
Sonny Vincent and Spite – Now That I Have You;
Low Cut Connie – Taste So Good;
Fuzz – Jack The Maggot;
Zerodent – You;
Soldiers of Fortune – Dog Tooth Down;
Cairo Gang – A Heart Like Yours;
Bäddat För Trubbel – Fran Afterwork Till Lillordag;
Giant Sand – Texting Feist;
Bernays Propaganda – ÄŒuvaj se od tie Å¡to te čuvaat.
