“Best Of” lists are so subjective and ranking/comparing art can be so weird. That said, I do love year-end blurb season. I love reading what stood out to other music fiends in an increasingly cluttered landscape and asking myself to consider what I might have missed or what others thought of those albums I played on repeat. Really stoked to be included alongside some great discourse in this entire list.
Talked to Japanese art-rock band Chai for Flood Magazine and made a few intentional and a lot of accidental Tom Tom Club references in the process (don’t hate the player hate the game!!!!) Link TK but it’s on newstands now!
I wrote about Bikini Kill, Kathleen Hanna, female anger and this album that has been a necessary cathartic release these past few enraging months where I’ve just wanted to scream 24/7 for FLOOD Magazine.
I talked to Lindsey Jordan aka Snail Mail about Lush (my favorite album of the year, if you’re new here), sequencing, stanning Television, and some other good stuff for FLOOD Magazine. I managed to even get a Joan Didion ref in there, so check it out.
