The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: British Sea Power

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: British Sea Power

What: Sea of Brass

When: October 2015

Where: Golden Chariot

Why: I've been a British Sea Power fan for something like 16 years now. Sea of Brass is the latest in a long line of strong records from the band with a penchant for costumed gigs and taxidermy props. The record sees several BSP favorites rejigged and made even more complex and smart with the addition of brass sections, making each song sound shiny and new again.

My very favorite jam: "Atom"
