every year i'm asked to do this and every year is super hard... there is so much good music put out every year and i can't even possibly hear 10% of it. sometimes much of what i hear is to review and discovering things gets lost in favour of writing about what i am assigned to write about. but anyway... i did it! and you can read them all HERE!
#5: kathleen edwards-voyageur
#4: father john misty-fear fun
#3: macklemore and ryan lewis-the heist
#1: cold speks-i predict a graceful expulsion
but do click the link and see WHY i loved these most.
there were of course things missing: the avett brothers, m. ward and some others.
and now i wanna know something from all you music geeks out there... WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL ABOUT FRANK OCEAN? he's good and the album is good but only good. i wanna get what all the hype is about. please esplain!
