The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Beach House

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: Beach House

What: Depression Cherry & Thank Your Lucky Stars

When: August 2015 & October 2015

Where: Sub Pop

Why: I just can't help but fall in love every time Beach House puts out a record. This double dose of dreamy, tender bedroom music instantly gets under the skin. Theirs is the music of the darkest, most velvet star-lit nights, sultry and beautiful. Twice as nice, twice as swoon-worthy, two Beach House records are definitely better than one.   

My very favorite jams: "PPP" (Depression Cherry), "One Thing" (Thank Your Lucky Stars)
