The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Fuzz

I am forever running late. While it may not be a part of my charm, I would refer you to the old saying about better late than never. In any case, after probably way too much thought, I finally settled upon my favorite 50 records from the year that was 2015. I'm also mixing it up a little this year, y'all. Instead of ranking every record, I'm giving you my picks in alphabetical order, saving my number one, very favorite record of the year for last. So sit back, relax, and refresh your memory of last year's best with a group of records that I hope will tickle your fancy.

Who: Fuzz

What: II

When: October 2015

Where: In The Red Records

Why: Sweet holy mercy. That's what I've said every time I've listened to this here record. Unrelenting, heavy psych with a definite classic (hard) rock vibe, these folks seriously know how to wail. Sure, you run the risk of blowing your speakers out, but that's a risk I really think you should be willing to take. The mind-melt potential definitely negates any potential harm to speakers. Oh, and Ty Segall's involved. Need I say more?  

My very favorite jam: "New Flesh"
