Here are my favorite albums of 2018. Unfortunately, I lost most of the reviews when hackers took my host's server down last summer. But you can hear them all on Youtube and Spotify. I especially love the top 5. 10 St. Vincent: MassEducation (Piano Version) https://youtu.be/AdmSRfbjQlY https://open.spotify.com/album/3XwQPcRrrSNxETjuD5ka5r?si=wV6A3_OeRzW7yAa_ip7mJQ St. Vincent Official Site Buy @ Amazon 9 Kacey...

As I said when I first posted about it in July, this seemingly strange pairing made perfect sense to me since they share a flare for the eccentric. The album as a whole doesn't quite live up to...

Strangely, reading that St. Vincent and David Byrne have collaborated on an album did not seem strange to me at all. Annie Clark and the former Talking Heads singer may have a May-December relationship of sorts, but they definitely have their flare for the eccentric in common. Love This Giant will be released on September... Continue Reading →
