Vampire_Weekend - Step

In 2013, Vampire Weekend had as good of a year as any. They released one of my favorite albums of the year, and headlined Barclays Center.

They capped it off in proper style, releasing a “wintertime remix” of “Step” (my favorite song of the year) last week featuring Danny Brown, Heems, & Despot. They shred the remix on twitter, and it’s available to grab as a free mp3 download below.

[CMJ]: Danny Brown @ Fader Fort (10/22/2011)

By Will Oliver, October 24th 2011

Even I have been paying attention to the hype that rapper Danny Brown has been getting from the indie hip-hop world this year. Did he live up to it? Easily.

As you’ve surely noticed, live rap shows can be hit or miss. Especially with me. So for me to say that I had a lot of fun keeping up with this up and comer from Detroit is saying a lot. His deliver is pretty distinct, allowing him to stand out from the overwhelming amount of rappers popping up these days.

There’s probably a reason a label such as Fool’s Gold signed him up. He’s got a lot going for him. He’s an interesting watch, and an even more interesting listen.

With Governors Ball just a mere two weeks away, the festival has finally revealed the set times for this year’s edition of the festival. With so many artists that you want to see playing at the same place, there’s naturally going to be some rather unfortunate conflicts.

Here are some conflicts (at least in my mind) that will force some people to make some tough choices:

We All Want Someone’s Best Albums Of 2016

By Will Oliver, January 31st 2017 — with 1 comment

2016 was as busy as any other year in recent memory with the constant release of new albums. It seemed like every week we were bombarded with a surprise album drop from a big star, a long overdue follow-up, or promising debut album that came out of thin air. It was a bit overwhelming, but a damn good problem to have. We lost a few heroes in David Bowie and Leonard Cohen, but gained a few instant classics that served to preserve their memory with an amazing sendoff. Radiohead, A Tribe Called Quest, The Avalanches, and The Last Shadow Puppets all finally returned to us. Frank Ocean delivered not one, but two albums.

There was no shortage of music to be found, especially good music. Below, you can find 50 favorites from 2016, including a few honorable mentions. Believe it or not, there were albums I left off that I would’ve gladly liked to at least mention to you, as they’re all worth your time. That’s saying something.

Call it what you want, best, top or favorites. Either way, these were the 50 albums that helped me get through 2016.
