flood-best-of-2018

Wrote about some albums I loved a whole lot this year — from Amen Dunes (#11), Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks (#6), Parquet Courts (#5), and Janelle Monae (#3) — for Flood Magazine.

“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.

Carly and I will be joining Crispin Kott and Mike Katz to discuss their new book, Rock & Roll Explorer Guide to New York City at Rough Trade NYC. Come hear us talk about music, New York, and the history between the two. More details here.
