Y La Bamba - Ojos Del Sol 
So beautiful my favorite new record this year 
The Breadth of this is mind-blowing collaborative effort on artwork w/ Milton Melvin Croissant III welcome to the future -

Mary Halvorson Octet - Away With You
Not very often and I sucked in at first listen - but with Mary I was. The pedal steel player in the group Susan Alcorn is amazing as well.

A Tribe Called Quest - We Got it From Here... 
So refreshing - So current. Made me feel like I was a 10 year old white kid from the suburbs hearing Public Enemy for the first time.

Esme Patterson - We Were Wild Rocking Esme is my favorite Esme. Miss you boo.

Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds - Skeleton Tree
I can't write about this now - it's been a rough year - just listen.

Beyonce - Lemonade 
It took me awhile to get around to this - but yes everyone was right - it's completely amazing.

Joe Sampson - Chansons de Parade
New EP from one of the best - this - song -  kills - me

Wilco - Schmilco 

New rock record by 20 year old "indie" band usually means I will automatically dismiss it - Wilco always gets me though - especially this one - so weird.

Hippies Wearing Muzzles - Animist Pools
Really Good Modular synth stuff when the world is too heavy and you just want to lay back and read Neuromancer for the 5th time.
