The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: The Weather Station

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: The Weather Station

What: Loyalty

When: May 2015

Where: Paradise of Bachelors

Why: Timeless, that's what this record is. Absolutely timeless. Channeling the rich folk stylings of fellow Canadian Joni Mitchell all over the place, this big-voiced lass offers visions of wide open skies and whirlwinds of haunted emotion. A beautiful listen each and every time.

My very favorite jam: All of 'em
