The Fashionably Late Top 66 of 2017: Cherry Glazerr
I’ve put together my list of favorites from the year that was, a touch fashionably late as always. Once again, I’ve decided to eschew a ranking system and instead give you an alphabetical look at the records I fell for this year. There’s some names here that will come as no surprise to anyone, and perhaps a few that might surprise you. These are simply my favorites from 2017, the albums I went back to again and again, the albums that I swooned over. So, without further exposition, here’s my list. I think you’ll find you can get your kicks from any and all of the 66 records I’ve chosen, and I truly hope you’ll find some treasures to cherish, as I cherish each and every record here. Many, many thanks to the artists who put out this fantastic music, their sounds helped make 2017 bearable.
Who: Cherry Glazerr
When: January 2017
Where: Secretly Canadian
Why: A record full of badass dream post-punk with feisty surf pop undertones AND a hearty dose of woman power? Yes please. California's Cherry Glazerr shreds with the best of them on this early 2017 release, an album that is definitely not a shrinking violet. Apocalipstick improves with every listen, and it's pretty fucking good to start with.
