The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Joanna Gruesome

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: Joanna Gruesome

What: Peanut Butter

When: July 2015

Where: Slumberland

Why: Peanut butter isn't just for snacking on, friends. Peanut Butter, Joanna Gruesome style, is full of the same crunchy, smirking fuzz and raging riffs that hallmarked the excellent Weird Sister, churning through heavy shit while all the while sounding deceptively buoyant and bubbly. A solid listen from start to finish, these Cardiff noisemakers keep getting better.

My very favorite jam: "Separate Bedrooms"
