The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: The Brian Jonestown Massacre

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: The Brian Jonestown Massacre

What: Mini Album Thingy Wingy

When: November 2015

Where: A Records

Why: I'm sure this one really can't be a surprise to anyone. The masterful 7-song "mini" album is full of gems, and includes some wonderful turns like a Slovakian ditty and a 13th Floor Elevators cover ("Dust") featuring a guest appearance by The Black Angels' Alex Maas. Just another notch in Anton Newcombe's belt, really, and proves that he's still the pacesetter with American psych. 

My very favorite jam: "Pish"
