2016 II

Omissions and Otherwise Left-out Leftovers  |  last.fm data  |  Spotify data Okay, so in my 2016 post, it would seem that I glossed over or outright left out a lot of important parts of the year in music. It's as if I talked about the body, but not the heart. This was intentional, as I … Continue reading 2016 II

2016 Rundown | Best of 2016 | SoundCloud Playlists | Spotify Playlists 2016 Rundown I don't like to play favorites, and when it comes to bundling a group of artists or songs together at the end of the year, I absolutely hate ordered lists. I'm not going to say Frank Ocean's Blond is better than … Continue reading 2016

Best of 2014: Remixes, Etc

REMIXES https://soundcloud.com/frankles/sets/2014-remixes This was a very difficult list to pare down. Remixes certainly didn't suffer any kind of shortage over the course of the year, and with each subsequent mind-bending remix, the previous one gets pushed back a little bit further from memory. Such was the case with Bonobo's Balearic treatment of Maya Jane Coles' … Continue reading Best of 2014: Remixes, Etc

I'm confident that there are five more albums out released in the past 12 months that would supplant one, if not all of the albums listed below. Maybe. But these are the albums I heard, and … Continue reading Best of 2014: Albums

Boy, that's a lame 'Share.'  I'd fantasized that upon clicking the "Share this via WordPress" button on the page it would magically transfer my Top 10 songs of 2010 selections.  Instead it provides a link to a page that's useless even to me once I close … Continue reading Top 10 of ’10 | for 89.3 The Current

Top 10 of 2008

Yup, it's that time again. I feel a bit farcical (what kind of word is that?) in this in that I haven't been working at the DLR since August which means I haven't been listening to the standard 6-8 hours of The Current in conjunction with B96, 93X, a little Radio K and a generous … Continue reading Top 10 of 2008

Tops of 2007

89.3 The Current recently (today) started tallying votes for the top 89 records of 2007, I shot through and started compiling my picks. I like being asked for my opinion, even if it is aimed at a large mass of people and not, specifically, me. It got my mind running and I decided to expand … Continue reading Tops of 2007
