The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Grooms

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: Grooms

What: Comb the Feelings Through Your Hair

When: February 2015

Where: Western Vinyl

Why: Another record full of intelligent, clamorous post punk with just a hint of psych from Grooms. Comb is a wonderful collection of songs, brimming with quirky riffs and bountiful, disparate noises that work beautifully together. From the hazy, blurred exit of "Cross Off" to the taut, riotous intro of "Bed Version," this is quite a compelling listen indeed.    

My very favorite jam: "Bed Version"
