The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Sextile

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: Sextile

What: A Thousand Hands

When: August 2015

Where: Felte

Why: Dark and unexpected, the strange brew that is LA at night creeps into the Sextile sound and oozes out from every pore. At times a touch disorienting, this unpredictable and engaging noise pulls together dynamic, brooding 80s Brit synth with touches of industrial havoc and plain old howling at the moon. All told it's a sound that's well and truly entrancing.   

My very favorite jam: "Can't Take It" but also "Smoke In The Eye" and also "Shattered Youth" but then there's also "Into The Unknown" and "Visions of You"
