The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Thee Oh Sees

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: Thee Oh Sees

What: Mutilator Defeated At Last

When: May 2015

Where: Castle Face

Why: I don't know how they can keep doing it, but the wily  Thee Oh Sees are here once again, with a collection of songs that simply can't be ignored. Frantic freakout energy pulsates all over the place, and the J. Dwyer brainchild kicks out the psych noise jams in a splendid kind of way. Music to blow out your speakers to.   

My very favorite jam: "Web" and "Withered Hand" and "Poor Queen" and "Lupine Ossuary" and "Holy Smoke" and "Rogue Planet"
