My Year-End Lists Of 2016

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

You have your mix of Shoegaze, Hip Hop and [...]
