Best Albums of 2016

Posted January 1, 2017 By admin

The time has come to rank the best albums of the past year. It’s been a year of loss, as many great musicians have passed, some very near and dear to my heart. Some great music was made though, and that’s what will always keep the memories of musicians alive. I’m sure some of the albums below will be new to some people, and some will be very familiar. Hopefully the ones that are new to you will inspire you to seek them out and give them a chance, and the ones you already know will inspire you to revisit them at some point. Before I get to the top 10, here are some honorable mentions that just missed the cut but deserve to be listened to:

And now, the top 10:

10. Hayes Carll-Lovers and Leavers

9. Sarah Jarosz-Undercurrent

8. Anoushka Shankar-Land Of Gold

7. Benjamin Francis Leftwich-After The Rain

6. Romantica-Shadowlands

5. The Cactus Blossoms-You’re Dreaming

4. Loretta Lynn-Full Circle

3. The Pines-Above The Prairie

2. Bob Dylan-Fallen Angels

1. Leonard Cohen-You Want It Darker

Regina Spektor- Far

Posted November 22, 2009 By admin

Regina Spektor writes the kind of crazy-quilt confessionals we used to hear a lot from 1990s alt-rockers but don’t get enough of these days. The Russian-born Lower East Side piano punk has the European yelp of Björk, the loopiness of Fiona Apple, the too-much-information torridness of Tori Amos and the slanted critical eye of Liz Phair. But none of those girls ever interrupted a song about long-term commitment to uncork a flurry of dolphin noises, as Spektor does on “Folding Chair,” one of the stranger — and catchier — moments on her excellent third major-label record.

The 29-year-old singer-songwriter’s 2004 disc, Soviet Kitsch, flaunted her exotic Old World accent on stark, ranting torch songs that followed a boozy logic. 2006’s Begin to Hope had fuller production and great one-liners about being a doomed New York romantic, like a Joni Mitchell for the post-Strokes era. Produced by Jeff Lynne, Garret “Jacknife” Lee, Mike Elizondo and David Kahne, Far matches Kitsch‘s rococo flow with the follow-up’s pop smarts. On the jaunty, hip-hop-tinged “Dance Anthem of the 80’s,” she wanders lonely streets with her slip hanging out, “like a drunk, but not.” “Laughing With” begins as a meditation on God’s wicked sense of humor and ends collapsing in an existential freakout over a soft beat and weeping cello. Spektor is a woman who doesn’t need much excuse to have an emotional Chernobyl (in one song, it’s finding a wallet with a Blockbuster card in it). But she’s also the rare screwball who gets more universal as she gets weirder.

  • Eet
  • Laughing With
  • The Calculation
