Flashlite #775 – Best of 2023


Last week we reviewed part one of our list of best albums in 2023. This week it’s time to complete the top 30 list. 2023 was marked be great power pop records by Babaganouj, Diners, Exbats, Whiffs. Uni Boys top the list with an extremely catchy offering in that same genre. Sunny War had a killer roots rock album. I dig the repetitive quasi karut rock of Verstärker. Noisy offerings from BBQT, Starcrawler, The Tubs and Purling Hiss are good to tune out harsh realities of life. Jaimie Branch album surprised with a great combination of fun and experiment. It’s sad that she’s no longer with us. And let’s not forget Ukleti Dukat with their psychedelic pastorals of the Pannonian plains.


Babaganouj – She Wears Velvet
The Exbats – Himbo
The Whiffs – Romeo
Verstärker – Hinter dem Spiegel
The Tubs – Duped
Starcrawler – True
Diners – The Power

Purling Hiss – Something In My Basement
Jaimie Branch – Baba Louie
Ukleti Dukat – Ukazanje na Obli

Uni Boys – Say You’ll Make It Real
Uni Boys – I Want It Too
