The Fashionably Late Top 50 of 2015: Widowspeak

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: Widowspeak

What: All Yours

When: September 2015

Where: Captured Tracks

Why: I'm a bit of a latecomer to the pastoral psych dream pop of Widowspeak, but this lovely long player soon made a fan of me. Heavenly vocals and a two-lane desert road vibe make All Yours a pleasure to listen to again and again. Wistful yet full of light, this one's a wee gem.   

My very favorite jam: Pretty much all of them.
