It's just about that time again.
I have forty three records vying for a "Best Of 2016" Top Ten spot and bubbling under position. Of the forty three artists, forty one have been making records for ten years or more and only one has released a debut, and they tragically lost their lead singer soon after.
(2016, you just won't quit, will you.)
So, while I sift and listen, and then drop and give you twenty, please suggest some of your fave records by "new" artists released this year.
Up top, one of my very favorite "new" artists, The Rails. They have a new one coming in 2017. Until then, this is an exquisite cover of Edwyn Collins' "Low Expectations."
