It was another solid year for new music, despite the crazy times. There’s at least another ten I could have put on this list. I try to pick albums where I like most of the songs and can easily keep in the mix on the radio show for years to come.
I’ve been a fan of Elizabeth Cook for a number of years but this new record is my favorite she’s ever done. She and producer Butch Walker who played on all the songs too, really brough a great vibe to it with some of her twangy sounds mixed with that’ 70’s California vibe everyone is so fond of.
Dramarama has been a band I've loved for years and hasn't put out anything new in 14 years. I didn't really expect anything new from them again, so this was a great surprise. They sound as great as ever.
I like everything Lucinda does but this one is really great. It covers the spectrum from soft quiet songs, to blues, to loud rockers. Great all the way through.
I loved Shopping’s last record and this one picks up where that one left off. I just love how they use the bass as a lead instrument.
