-Music Section-1. Ceremony-Into the Wayside/Sick: This is the opening track from Ceremony's newest record, a band that I was honestly formerly not that into (except 1 song). This record as a whole is amazing: real talk. This song in particular is filled with a building, adult, dispossessed sort of angst that for whatever reason really struck a chord. With screamy vocals from a little dude.
2.Fucked Up-The Other Shoe: Another band that sort of fell off my radar until I picked up this ostensibly concept-esque record this year. Gently instrumented, complex building of layers of what cant rightfully be described as punk anymore, since it's gone beyond those kind of bounds.
With screamy vocals by a big dude.
3.Wugazi-Sweet Relief: Method. Man. Over. Fugazi. Beats. This is my favorite record. Of the year. If you dont go get this, you fucked up.
4.Teenage Bottlerocket-Social Life: Kindhearted, funny-ish, catchy as fuck pop punk. Straight up. Amazing for summer beach driving.
5.Trainwreck Riders-Chug Along: I don't know how I land on the rest of this bands stuff, but this song, with it's weird, plodding, extra countrified Modest Mouse lite twang hit me but good.
6.Lil Wayne-6Foot7: Yeeeeoooooh.
7.Coliseum-Fall of the Pigs: If a motorcycle was a song about, well, pigs falling, this'd be it.
8.This Will Destroy you-Killed the Lord, Left for the New World: A record I was so stoked on that, really, truly doesn't disappoint. A growing of quiet somber post rock soundscapes. With a sit down metal guitar player live. So.

9.Patton Oswalt-The Best Argument: This record has some hilights, some low. But dude always delivers at least once. It says it in a book.
10. My Brother, My Brother and Me-A Sampler: OK, so. Honestly? I haven't listened to as much music as I have in years previous. What do I listen to 8-10 hours a day? Audiobooks. And podcasts. And this is maybe, maybe, the funniest thing I have ever heard consistently in my life. 3 nerdy/not nerdy/ adult but not, brothers giving fake advice to real people and answering internet questions that feel like they shouldn't be real, but probably are.
