(31) Days of Good//12.2.15


I’ve always enjoyed the musical stylings of Dan Deacon, but i wouldn’t have called myself a true fan until he released 2012’s America. Since then, i’ve anxiously awaited a follow up and couldn’t be happier. And if you ever have the chance to see Mr. Deacon live, DO IT. I was lucky enough to catch him at Outside Lands this year and it was magical.

Dan Deacon – Learning to Relax [from Glass Riffer]



belle and sebastian - girls in peacetime want to dance

At first listen, I wasn’t immediately hooked on this album. But shortly after few more listens, it became a big time favorite of mine this year. I always appreciate when artists/bands experiment with their signature sound and try new things. With that said, this particular track is classic Belle & Sebastian and couldn’t help but pick it as my favorite.

Rappers like Kanye and Drake seem to get all the press these days, but Kendrick deserves it —  easily one of the most impressive Hip Hop artist of 2015. Seriously, the biggest thing Yeezy released all year were his adidas kicks and those things are a bigger waste of money than the Apple Watch. It’s hard enough to follow up a debut album, but to follow up an LP like good kids m.A.D.d. City is even more daunting. In short, Kendrick crushed expectations.
