As many of you know, The Home For Wayward Records is relocating to Florida next week, so 99% of the records are boxed up and ready to go. Before I packed though, I went through and pulled my So Far 2018 Top 20 for you all. I’m going to run through the top 10 a bit slower once we’re really moving and on the road, but here’s 11-20 to get you started. I hope you understand my semi-absence and will still be here when I get set up in Florida.
20. Screaming Females - All At Once
19. Kacey Musgraves - Golden Hour
18. David Byrne - American Utopia
17. Khruangbin - Con Todo El Mundo
16. Ghost - Prequelle
15. Father John Misty - God’s Favorite Customer
14. Courtney Barnett - Tell Me How You Really Feel
13. Soccer Mommy - Clean
12. The Breeders - All Nerve
11. Shakey Graves - Can’t Wake Up
Not as immediately appealing as Secrets or Head Hunters in my opinion, but “Actual Proof” and “Spank-A-Lee” has my man Paul Jackson delivering some of the filthiest bass out there!
Columbia PC 32965
1974 US Stereo
Yeah, a vampire sharpshooter
"O," I said, "a messenger for the damned."
I got a holy gun, come a loaded
To kill everything that I am
Well I am the only nitty-gritty
Ride a rail and look at the crime, yeah!
Well I am the only—god? one they can find #whitezombie
I love this picture and have been wanting to post this record for a while but I just haven't had to time to play a double album. I'm off work tomorrow though, so tonight I'm listening to an album deeply entrenched in Rolling Stones myth and legend - Exile On Main St. Recorded while on the run in France for tax evasion, this album has quite the story behind it as well as being ranked up there with the likes of Sticky Fingers as some of the band's best work!
#NowPlaying#NowSpinning All Of This Life by The Record Company. Aw mah gawd...look what came in the mail today. The new album from one of my favorite bands of all time. These guys have always mastered the sound of blues rock but they kicked up a notch with this record. So good. I’m about halfway thru the album already and it’s giving me the major feels with the song playing right now “You and Me Now”. Love how there’s also a more country vibe going on. I knew this band would be huge when I first fell in love them 5-6 years ago. Watching them play all around LA in some of the best intimate venues. It’s been a while since I’ve seen them but I’ll be at @thewiltern in November to check out the new songs live. Can’t wait! @therecordcompany#therecordcompany#ALLOFTHISLIFE#vinyl#vinyljunkie#vinylcommunity#vinylcollector#onmyturntable
What started out as a college art project (and I'm guessing an ironic commentary on something), luckily for us morphed into a proper band and one of the best releases of 2018 so far. Thank you Dream Wife.
