Favorite Albums of 2014

Favorite Albums of 2014

I wasn’t my best music loving self in 2014. I traded a good portion of my typical music listening time instead to audiobooks and podcasts. I can’t tell if I neglected music because I preferred other audio entertainments more, if I wasn’t that impressed by the years releases, or if I simply didn’t do as good...
DHM Concert Review 2013

DHM Concert Review 2013

So many people peg Seattleites as repressed or unfriendly, but I don’t think that’s true at all.  For me, the evidence is on display at a good concert, and I try to see as many as I can.  We have a passionate, informed musical culture here and the fans almost always give as much as...
Favorite Songs of 2013

Favorite Songs of 2013

I attempted to make another top 100 songs list, like I was able to do in 2012, but I ran out of time. I instead have an unranked top 78 Song playlist. I only used one song per artist, and I’m sure in my haste I left out a few songs I’ll regret late. Oh well! Overall it...

Favorite Albums of 2013

An intro paragraph for a personal favorites list is kind of pointless since it always boils down to essentially saying “these were my favorite albums of the year due to experiences I had and my personal taste.” So instead I’m going to do a quick few intros as if I were making a list for...
Favorite EP's of 2013

Favorite EP’s of 2013

There’s not much to say here other than these were my personal favorite EP’s from 2013. With the ridiculous amounts of new music being released all the time, I’m sure I left off some good ones. Check back in the coming days for top album and song list’s that will feature several of these same...

Top 10 Albums of 2012 (Leah)

Leah’s Top 10 Albums of 2012   1.       Murder By Death – Bitter Drink, Bitter Moon Among the many reasons I love Murder By Death is their ability to seamlessly weave indie/folk/Americana/punk/orchestra into one coherent genre. I’ve been a fan of theirs for a long time and it seems that with each album they bring...

Alex’s Favorite Songs of 2012: Part 2 (50-1)

Favorite Songs of 2012: Part 2 (50-1) You will have to take these list rankings with a grain of salt, because although I tried my best to accurately arrange the tracks, I change it every time I listen to one of the songs. I also only included my favorite song from each artist, so there...

Two Thousand Twelve / Songs “Thinkin’ Bout You” / Frank Ocean No, I don’t like you, I just thought you were cool / Enough to kick it / Got a beach house I could sell you in Idaho / Since you think I don’t love you, I just thought you were cute / That’s why...

Favorite Albums Of 2012 (Alex)

Favorite Albums Of 2012 (Alex) After looking my top albums list over, I realize it’s much more moody than years past. I think this might be because the majority of the time I listen to music is when I’m inside, and living in Seattle that means it’s probably a little misty or cloudy out. If...
Top 12 Albums of 2012 (Julia)

Top 12 Albums of 2012 (Julia)

Top 12 Albums of 2012 (Julia) 12. Tramp – Sharon Van Etten Favorite Track: “Give Out” Totally enchanted by Sharon Van Etten’s voice. Such a good album for a rainy day, and considering it rains most of the time here in Seattle, it’s pretty much a good album for every day. 11. There’s No Leaving...

Favorite Music Videos of 2012 (Alex)

Favorite Music Videos of 2012 (Alex)   There was no way I was going to be able to watch all the music videos released this year. I liked so many different videos for so many different reasons it seemed silly to try and rank them. That’s why I have presented my first year-end list (several...
