Best of 2016

Monday, December 26th, 2016

Friends
It’s been awhile since the Supacomp days, but this year deserves a music compilation for your ears.
and Spotify has made the editing and curating process much easier.
So here are my picks for 2016. (and some late 2015 entries)

https://open.spotify.com/user/doublehalo/playlist/6QpO4atqVoHd2AgcAlQsyf

Over 100 tasty tunes to keep you busy.
Hopefully it’ll bring back some good memories and point you to some new tunes to check out.

My picks for album of the year are out on a limb,
but it’s gotta be the Coathangers with Nosebleed Weekend, which also
gave me one of the best live concerts of the year.

Other top albums were
Frightened Rabbits: Painting of a Panic Attack
Angel Olsen: My Woman
Mitski: Puberty 2
Operators: Blue Wave

and have you listened to the new Monkees?? It’s a gem.

until next time.

Guided By Voices @ Maxwell’s

Thursday, December 30th, 2010

Seeing Guided By Voices in such an intimate setting reminded me of the times I saw them in shit holes back in Dayton. The venue and energy in the crowd better captured the essence of this band. These guys just plain rock and tonight was no exception. They played a 46 song setlist for almost 3 hours. The beer and liquor was flowing onstage and in the crowd and as Rob got sloppier onstage it became more intense and raw. Sad to see this GBV lineup close up shop once again. Some great videos here.

Delorean @ Bowery Ballroom

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

I missed Tanlines open up but I assume they were great as the previous shows were loads of fun. Delorean‘s album Subiza has been the perfect summer album. Its a set of tunes to say goodnight to a hot summer day. However tonight the chillfest album was kicked into high gear as the crowd enthusiastically clapped, jumped and danced throughout the night. The band played their very lush dance pop and the show turned into a great dance party. There was even some crowd surfing.
