My Best Albums of 2016

temp-11

The Temperance Movement WHITE BEAR. Earache Records

Phil Campbell’s songwriting continues to shine through on most tracks. A progression from their brilliant debut album for sure

cohen-11

Leonard Cohen YOU WANT IT DARKER. Columbia

An incredible addition to one of the finest bodies of work in the whole canon of recorded music

christine-1

Christine And The Queens. CHALEUR HUMAINE. Because

Chaleur Humaine is a superb debut with wonderful songs and melodies that will linger long in your head and have you coming back to listen again and again

kater-1

Kaia Kater NINE PIN. Mavens Music

Fueled by rich low tenor vocals, jazz-influenced instrumentation, and beautifully understated banjo, ‘Nine Pin’ is Kaia’s sophomore album and has as much in common with Kendrick Lamar right now as they do with Pete Seeger

manmade-1

Man Made TV BROKE MY BRAIN. Man Made/ Kobalt/Soul Kitchen

Fantastic album, beautiful summery guitar pop with catchy choruses and interesting lyrics

lucinda-11

Lucinda Williams THE GHOSTS OF HIGHWAY 20. Thirty Tigers

An elegiac reflection on past and place, “The Ghosts of Highway 20” is the album Lucinda Williams has bean leading towards for years

glaspy-1

Margaret Glaspy EMOTIONS AND MATH. ATO Records

This is a gem of an album and a great debut from a real talent

swans-1

Swans THE GLOWING MAN. Mute

This album is like climbing a mountain – the Swans take you on the journey and also give you the high of reaching the peak

plants-1

Plants and Animals WALTZED IN FROM THE RAMBLING. Secret City

Plants and Animals are a Montreal-based trio that began playing together as kids, emerged on the international scene in 2008 and have developed a varied cult following ever since, built this on the shoulders of their self-produced records, their intense live show, or both—depending on who you ask

luh-1

L U H SPIRITUAL SONGS FOR LOVERS TO SING. Mute Artists

This album moved me like few others before. A Beautiful piece of work

shauf-1

Andy Shauf THE PARTY. ANTI

A sublime, superb album. The best yet from this chilled-out Canadian

bronagh-1

Bronagh Gallagher GATHER YOUR GREATNESS. Salty Dog Records

She maintains a special place for singing, writing and performing and is joined on the new record by Marie McKee (singing guest vocals on the opening track ‘Can You Hear Me’) and Brian Eno singing BVs on the uplifting ‘Radio’
