The Fashionably Late Top 66 of 2017: Jane Weaver
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: Jane Weaver
What: Modern Kosmology
When: May 2017

Why: After catching a bit of Jane's set at last year's Liverpool Psych Fest, I knew I was going to love Modern Kosmology. The short version is that this record is nothing short of magic, a shimmering clutch of galactic experimental chanteuse psych. Weaver's songs are full of live, and dance tantalizingly across multitudinous universes, completely captivating intricate technicolor triumphs.
