It all started with an electronic track in a coffee shop. I thought, man, when are we finally gonna get that soundtrack from Johnny Jewel. Not the one he put out that we didn’t ask for, but Dear Tommy. It’s coming. (Well, the mp3s are here , but the vinyl is still coming.) In the meantime, let’s go back to 2012 and revisit B/E/A/T/B/O/X by G/L/A/S/S/C/A/N/D/Y. No, that many slashes is totally not annoying to type.

Very excited for new music from Nine Inch Nails and David Bowie. What is it, 1995 again? Bowie released an EP called “No Plan” exactly one year after his birthday, just short of one year after his death. It’s eerie. It’s brilliant. The guy had some serious musical and artistic chops. New Reznor puts me in the mind of old Reznor, back when I was an angry young lad. It works for middle age, too. Same but different.

Continuing to play every song on the Warpaint and Duchess Says albums. Both among my favorite releases of 2016. (See previous show.) Songs going out to my daughter from Liars, Savages, and Frank Black. Some TV Girl, Helado Negro, and Chook Race thrown in for good measure.

PR012 – Best of 2016 Archive Link: PR011 – BFF – Take A Van My house tried to kill me last week. I had to see a doctor & get a tetanus shot. I survived.

I played a lot of music on my show. I listened to more music than I had time to play. This is a distillation of those two lists. It’s a giant weird, lopsided Venn Diagram that I had to stop tweaking and finally walk away from. As always, there’s a mix of indie rock, hip-hop, noise rock, electronic, and a little country thrown in.

When I did my top seven most played albums of the year for, I was a little surprised. When I had to expand it to my top 33 albums, everything started moving around. Albums that I had played a lot started to drop. Albums that I had played once (or not at all) moved into my top ten. They were just that good.

Of course, this is all completely arbitrary, started with metrics, and finished with emotion. What I like best about this exercise is the chance to revisit albums you haven’t picked up in months, and remember what you were doing when you first heard it. Or, listening to friends’ best of shows, and realizing there’s still plenty of new music to discover.

So, without further ado, let’s put the spaghetti in the machine.
