The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: The Spook School

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 Spook School

What: Try to Be Hopeful

When: November 2015

Where: Fortuna Pop

Why: Full of lovely, fuzzed to high heaven shambles, this is a record to bring a smile to ones face. These Edinburgh noisemakers unleashed a record that brings together 90s era college rock with hints of the Glasgow School and pure pop, and the result is undeniable.   

My very favorite jam: "Speak When You're Spoken To"
