The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Shark Week

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: Shark Week

What: Beach Fuzz

When: May 2015

Where: Paper Cup Music

Why: It's nigh on impossible not to fall under the spell of DC swamp surfsmiths Shark Week and their sweaty, sassy jangle. Plaintively cooing vocals and a bounty of scuffed up fuzz make this a charming collection of songs that sound like summer but more than hit the spot all year round.  

My very favorite jam: "Desire" and "Waste Of Time" and "Honeybee" and "Minute Song" and "Weekend"
