The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Django Django

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: Django Django

What: Born Under Saturn

When: May 2015

Where: Ribbon Music

Why: There's just something about those Djangos. Clever beats and an almost b-movie feel make them more than your average bear on the knob-twiddling band scene. They give off a sound that's both more than a little slyly tongue-in-cheek and unabashedly carefree (not to mention ridiculously fun). If it's a party your ears are craving, you might want to put the needle down on Born Under Saturn something sharpish. 

My very favorite jam: "Shot Down"
