The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Youth Lagoon

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: Youth Lagoon

What: Savage Hills Ballroom

When: September 2015

Where: Fat Possum

Why: What a beautiful, messy, engaging, loud, and enveloping record one-man band Youth Lagoon has given the world. Each song is a mini-epic, giving and demanding intensity from start to finish. Some of the quirkiest, dreamiest, most heartfelt tunes out there.  

My very favorite jam: Each and every one.
