This is our year end list for albums of the year. There’s four of us here, so it’s hard to come to a consensus, but we did our best. Feel free to argue and tell us where we went wrong; we realize our list is quite a bit different than most. Read more
Lot’s of quality albums will be hitting the streets this month, one of which is the new joint from John Dragonetti and his project known as Jack Drag. Having heard the record in full as the really cool blogger I am, I can tell you that it is hot, on fire, and full of hit after hit. It seriously might be one of my favorite pop albums to come out in a long long time. Keep in mind we don’t listen to lot of traditional pop like Beyonce or Carly Rae so it’s going to be a little bit left of center, just like us. If my words aren’t enough for you to trust his new work, check out his third single from the release below and tell me you aren’t excited. You will need to own this.
Drag will release 2018 on September 14th via Burger Records.
Remember when Animal Collective were writing incredible pop songs that had everyone salivating? Well, I think you’ll find something similar in the music of John Dragonetti aka Jack Drag. The very first vocal entrance creates this soaring melody that immediately had me fawning for sunshine; it’s strange how a simple melody can transport you, but such is the power of this song. It also probably doesn’t hurt that Aimee Mann, a friend of John’s, had a hand in this tune, as did Dylan Gardner. Really, none of that even matters as the hook of this track supersedes everything else before you today. Look for the new LP, 2018, in September via Burger Records.
Everybody’s doing it! I’m a follower! Mostly I just wanted something to do while food prep is going on about the house. So, I’ve looked through this year’s LPs, determined which ones I played the most. These lists are arbitrary, so there’s no sequencing as of now…just my favorites, thus far in 2018. I’ve even included a playlist too!
