AGDFA’s 2017 Year-End Comp Mix

Posted on | January 15, 2018 | No Comments

This yearly tradition (6 years running) goes on despite the fact i’ve been pretty quiet
on the podcast front.

Actually, these 60 songs would’ve made the cut and been part of episodes I would’ve recorded for you fine people.

Instead, you get them all in one GIANT stew of RockShoegaze, Hip Hop, Electro and Sad Bastard musical goodness.

Enjoy! and see you on the flipside.

Bonne Année!

another good one.

If anything, there’s too much good music outthere and it’s hard to hear
it all or come up with a year-end list that captures the greatness without
missing one or 10 picks you’d wanna include on the list.

My Year-End Lists Of 2016

Posted on | December 28, 2016 | No Comments

Any other year, Autolux’s “Pussy’s Dead” would have been my undisputed,
#1 album. But then, the unthinkable happened. A Tribe Called
Quest
, which is fair to say, my favorite hip hop group of all
times and spaces
, released their sixth studio album, their first in
18 years
and their last with the late, great “Five Foot Assassin” Phife
Dawg
who passed away earlier this year.

It had no right to be this good but it was. Q-Tip is a goddamn genius.

So yeah, Autolux and A Tribe Called Quest shares the #1 spot.

Radiohead were a given.

Modern Baseball was a nice discovery. Emo-ish, indie rock band from
Philly that reminds me so much of Canada’s own The Weakerthans.

The Lees of Memory. If Superdrag’s John Davis releases any kind
of music in a calendar year, it will be on my list. It’s just
the law.

The rest of those picks, Tbh, could switch places at any time. I feel
at this point in my life and all the music i’ve listened to,
ranking it just seems a futile exercise. That is my true top 5 but
the rest of those 15 albums will be fighting their level of importance
and goodness in my mind for the rest of my existence.

Wanna hear why all these albums are so good? And made 2016 such a killer
year in music
, be it in musical form or the Grim Ripper having a field day
with all our Musical Gods, Come back here January 1st to find out.
