The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: No Joy

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: No Joy

What: More Faithful

When: June 2015

Where: Mexican Summer

Why: My first foray into the world of No Joy was pretty dang rewarding. More Faithful is full of scrumptious sounds, from the laconic, shoegazey lushness of favorite "Everything New" to sharp, perfunctory pieces of flair like "Corpo Daemon" and everything in between. There's always something new to hear, always something else to love. My affection for this record is strong. 

My very favorite jam: "Everything New"
