Getz’s Top 30 Records of 2018

30. Beach House - 7: While Beach House will probably never be able to replicate the moment where I heard “Myth” for the first time (can any artist replicate a paradigm altering moment, though?), 7 is a nice mix of quiet tunes that sometimes veer from dreamy to foreboding, as the album’s aethestic might suggest. ...

Topher’s Top Albums of 2017

If 2016 was the “it” year for hip-hop and R&B based on new releases, 2017 was the equivalent for alternative and indie rock. A quick perusal of my top 100 tracks from the year would show you this, from new discoveries I made to long-time favorites of mine returning. The common thread with the vast majority, though, is ...
