How to Chicago: Albums of the Year

49. In general, I think 2017 was a down year for front to backs. Especially in comparison to the deluge of 2016 that brought Car Seat Headrest, Savages and John Doe’s The Westerner into my life, all of which I still listen to weekly.

Nevertheless there were a few worth mentioning. I dare you to listen to one of them all the way through more than once.

St. Vincent – Masseducation

Aimee Mann – Mental Illness

Kendrick Lamar – DAMN

Run The Jewels – 3

The Regrettes – Feel your Feelings Fool!

Ed Sheeran – Just wanted to see if you read this far down. Fuck Ed Sheeran. Here’s a tip Ed. You don’t have to say yes every time somebody asks you to be on TV. It leads to something called overexposure. It’s OK to say no and leave a little mystery every now and again you hack.

The Cavities – This is a band I made up in my head. If I was 16 and starting a rock and roll band this is what I would call it. Your kids can use it if you ask me first.

Booger – Another one of those, but obviously it would have to be a punk band.

In memory of Walter Scott.

  1. One of my children is a huge Ed Sheeran fan – much to my chagrin. Anytime he comes on the radio \ top hits playlist I say “Please turn that @#$king red haired scourge off”
