The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Calexico

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: Calexico

What: Edge of The Sun

When: April 2015

Where: Anti/Epitaph

Why: I've never really gotten that into Calexico, somehow, and Edge of The Sun makes me feel really disappointed in myself. A record filled with gorgeous, sun-bleached Cali-meets-Mexico desert roots-folk (with a kick), the songs are pretty much flawless. 

My very favorite jam: "Falling From The Sky"
