It’s been four (long) years since Rolling Blackouts was released and I can’t tell you how happy I was to hear new music from The Go! Team this year. Definitely a highlight. No other artist/band can pull off what they do with cheerleader chants, samples, guitar riffs, hip hop beats, and so much more.
Father John Misty’s follow up to 2012’s Fear Fun has to be one of the best sophomore releases in quite some time. This is one of those albums I can listen to completely over and over again. The lead-off/title track perfectly sets the tone and hooks me overtime. On another note, I was lucky enough to see Misty live for the second time this year (thanks honey bunny). One of the best live acts these days. Do yourself a favor and catch a show if you can.
Not only was First Day of Camp some of the best TV I enjoyed all year, it was packed full of fun and memorable tunes.
p.s. Oh how I wish “Electro City” was a real broadway musical.
