Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about urban roots music, television, and occasionally politics. 

My motto is Explore, Enjoy, and Share new Music! Enjoy!

The Top 45 Albums of 2016

Sorry that I put it out piecemeal to start, but since I was including links to labels, Spotify, Apple, and writing about each album, I just couldn't physically get all of the markup done at once.

As always, I pay homage to the Clash for starting my love of these styles of music and for giving me an ethical framework for thinking about music.

Now that it is all done, I can put it all in a guide for easier access.

I haven't finished the markup on the blog version yet...but once I do you will find it HERE.

Thanks to everyone for listening all year, these playlists I do every single week are a labor of love, but I love sharing them too. I hope that I have helped you find some great new music throughout 2016!

All hail my 2016 King of the Mountain, Car Seat Headrest - Teens of Denial

Next week I will put out the best singles of 2016 playlist and maybe a Tuesday playlist too? We will see, this was a LOT of work.

Looking forward to the new year to begin again.

As always, Explore, Enjoy, and Share Music!
