The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Holy Wave

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: Holy Wave

What: The Evil Has Landed Pt II

When: December 2015

Where: Reverberation Appreciation Society

Why: Texas has some pretty rarified psych rock air, and Holy Wave only adds to the mystique of the Lone Star movement. This extended play features some of the haziest, all-encompassing psychedelic noise you're going to hear. These dudes can jangle, they can drone, and they can pretty much do it all with devil-may-care ease.

My very favorite jam: "Hood Dreams" for chillin, "Madonna's Operation" for shakin' it.
