For music nerds like me, December is the time of year when we start obsessively ranking our favorite albums, singles, live shows and everything in between. One of my favorite sites Consequence of Sound even released their Top 50 Albums of 2017 in late-November (they were pretty spot on with their #1 pick tho).
But I’m not ready to let 2017 go quite yet (music 2017 I mean – the rest of 2017’s garbage can take a hike and never come back). There’s still great releases coming out (most notably a new LP from Miguel, a new singles from U.S. Girls, First Aid Kit and DJDS). And if we’re being honest, trying to pick from the best of the best this year feels like kind of a gargantuan task.
But no fear, I won’t let 2017 end without putting together my own year end lists and you’ll be the first to know. In the meantime, enjoy the music of Lineup #169.
Until next Monday.
