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

Catching up

Posted September 6, 2010 By admin

It’s been a while since I updated the blog, and quite a few things musically have been happening. First off, the Picks Of The Week feature will return shortly. My computer died and I brought it to get repaired and it was gone for over a week, so I haven’t added anything to my computer for a while, so I once I am able to do that again I will continue the feature. Secondly, the state fair was here the last week and a half, and there were plenty of free concerts I was able to attend there. I have included pictures and video below to some of the ones I went to. Pictures in the gallery are in the following order:

Romantica

Maria Isa

Billy McLaughlin

Rosanne Cash

Dessa






I also went to Boyz II Men, unfortunately none of my pictures turned out worthwhile, but here’s some videos:


In other music news, there are some exciting new releases that have come out recently and will be coming out in the near future.

Goo Goo Dolls-Something For The Rest Of Us
Brian Wilson-Reimagines Gershwin
David Gray-Foundling
Atmosphere-To All My Friends, Blood Makes The Blade Holy: The Atmosphere EPs
Bob Dylan-Witmark Demos
Pete Yorn-Self-Titled

It looks like it should be an exciting last half or so of the year for music, and I still have a few more concerts left on the schedule so keep a look out for some more reviews and pictures.
