I loved the All Dogs LP, and I ran around town during SXSW to catch them as many times as I could, so in that spirit, I’m bringing you this fresh old tune from Maryn Jones. She aims to keep herself busy in the new year by recording old solo tracks that never made it onto any releases…the promise is to get one out every few weeks. Live, Maryn’s powerful, so I love the contrast of that performer with the solemn note this song seems to hit. Old or new, this song’s great, and I can’t wait to hear more of the tunes she’ll unearth this year!
Year-end lists are everywhere…and I can see why they’re important to people. But, seeing as we generally walk off the beaten path more often than not, our list of the Top 50 Albums of 2015 is in no particular order, save alphabetically. It seems pointless to rank one piece of art higher than another, especially when the four of us at ATH all have varying tastes. We just put this list together of the albums we loved the most this year. Are we saying they’re better than records by Grimes or Kendrick Lamar? No, we’re just saying that these are the records we loved more than others. So, you can read on for what we thought was hot.
Also…put links to individual stores where you can buy the albums from the bands…as that’s how we all survive in this music world.
