It’s been a long long year…for me

I liked the Belle and Sebastian, YLT,  Jessie Ware, Lucinda Williams albums that came out but nothing knocked me out

The QOTSA was a bit of a return to form

Most disappointed by the Gaz Coombes…and Iggy Pop…and Ian Hunter….

My favorite concerts were YLT, Love and Rockets, Pixies, Luna, Living Colour, Jeff Tweedy, and Los Auténticos Decadentes (my favorite) oh and the Cure

Truth I didn’t go to many shows but just about everything I saw I loved..

Song of the Year: boygenius, ‘Not Strong Enough’

I just don't get the hoopla for that band. I swear, I tried to like them individually, then collectively, but just can't get into any of it.

And though I've come to appreciate the Strokes, I still can't get into Arcade Fire, the White Stripes, or the Hives.

Boygenius definitely captures something in the zeitgeist and I think they appeal to you and empower you ‘as needed.’ 

Did you ever see White Stripes, Arcade Fire or Hives live?

Hives are one of the best live acts I've seen. Sound and show are always tight and enthusiastic. Can't say I listen to their recorded stuff that much, it's good and punchy, but nothing like their live show
