psa: we’ve returned from our brief hiatus

hit up the new ’77 music club episode on the oft-forgotten glam rock gawd jobriath.

there’s a lot packed into this one, from his groundbreaking strides for lgbtq artists, ’70s social norms vs. today’s, the ways androgyny in rock is tied closely to white cis-male privilege…….. and also what “flex” and “zaddy” mean (for tha boomers out there).

so, yeah, a typical episode from us.

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.
