So here begins the obligatory year-end list of favorite albums.  Due to the overwhelming amount of awesome music released this year, I’ve decided to pick only 30 albums.  I could’ve easily made a list of 100+ great albums; however, by restricting the size I forced myself to be selective and really think about what I considered to be a fresh, personally enjoyable, and an overall progressive contribution to the ever-evolving spectrum of music creation.  More entries and thoughts tomorrow… enjoy!

"Got Something For You"

Christmas jangle punk comes early this season in the form of “Got Something For You”, a collaborative effort from West Coast indie rockers Best Coast and Wavves.  ”Got Something For You” is exactly what you’d expect — sleigh bells, chimes, heavy vocal reverb, a carillon outro, and plenty of Nathan Williams’ patented “woo” melodies.  Available for free November 28th on the upcoming Target holiday compilation The Christmas Gig.
