The Fashionably Late Top 66 of 2017: Ladygod
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.
What: Rock & Roll Kaliphate
When: October 2017
Where: Bossy Lil Thing
Why: Full of sneering, sassy scuzz, Richmond's Ladygod was a revelation with their naughty little record Rock & Roll Kaliphate. Filthy as you like, this gathering of boys and girls made a debut record full of rock and roll music to get up to no good to. I of course strongly encourage misbehavior, and listening to this record while you do it.
