The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Small Black

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: Small Black

What: Best Blues

When: October 2015

Where: Jagjaguwar

Why: Each song on Best Blues has its own heartbeat. Synth-driven and expansive, this is music to envelop broken hearts, bleeding hearts, and hearts on fire. The Brooklyners cast a beautiful shadow with this one. 

My very favorite jam: "Boys Life"
