Best Of 2016



Well, it's February 8th of 2017, so this list is a bit overdue. As usual in part to do with my laziness. But partly because I can't be arsed (yeah, I have British friends) to come up with descriptions of a bunch of albums that I'm not sure I'll be listening to in 3 years time. Yeah, not to be a killjoy, but 2016 didn't have a huge musical impact on me. Maybe I haven't let some of the albums sink in yet, but there wasn't too much that bowled me over besides maybe 5 of the albums listed below. Wild Animals was definitely my fave of the year though. And of course I missed seeing them a couple weeks ago because I rathered getting drinking with my friends than sitting through a hardcore fest with 3 decent bands. So jaded, man.

So this year I present a list. Then I'll get back to posting way better bands from 20 years ago.

Did I mention jaded?
