An interesting year. Most (3) of the concerts I saw (6) came in one week in March, my favorite ones were Karnivool in March and Aristocrats in December.
Most of my favorite albums so far came out in one week in the fall, but I have yet to work through the official “best-of” lists.
Here’s my top 5 so far:
Winery Dogs – Hot Streak
Bumblefoot – Little Brother is Watching
Queensryche – Condition Human
Sonny Landreth – Bound by the Blues
Trivium – Silence in the Snow
However, as every year, I have made Spotify lists of many journalistic sources to see what I may have missed. NPR’s favorite, Reverbs best of 2015, Guitar World Top 50, Telegraph’s Top Country, Top Hip Hop, Eddie Trunks Top 10 and I have still marked NME and Rolling Stone. I see a couple of names on every lists, Jamie XX, Brandi Carlisle, Vince Staples, Courney Barnett so we’ll see what the fuss is about and maybe add to the list later.(These lists will be solid for at least three months I think, so feel free to subscribe. )
After the dissolution of the last cover band I became part of a new one and we played just six gigs (14 already booked for this year), my other band Club of Revelation played four times more than 2014… aka 4 🙂
2016… apparently AC/DC is coming to town, Killswitch Engage, Dream Theater, Tremonti are putting out new albums… let’s see!
