The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Post War Glamour Girls

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: Post War Glamour Girls

What: Feeling Strange

When: October 2015

Where: Hide & Seek Records

Why: One of the year's most pleasant surprises to my ears was this long player from the deliciously moody Leeds outfit Post War Glamour Girls. Theatric, expansive, and loud, Feeling Strange is a cohesive set of ten songs that speak to both the gloomy, sturm und drang times in which we live while also hitting moments of bliss (from a sonic standpoint). Strong lyrics and gruff, gripping vocals play perfectly against the intense barrage of riffs and powerful rhythm section. Oh so highly recommended listening.   

My very favorite jam: Pretty much every one has been a favorite, so let's just say the whole shebang.
