Nobody’s ever called me a good man…

American Aquarium put out one of the best albums of 2012, Burn.Flicker.Die.

(I put Burn.Flicker.Die first or second in my best of 2012 list – until I move the blog archives I can’t check)

Last year they ran a great Kickstarter campaign and released Wolves. I have played these songs all year and could happily listen to Whit on pedal steel for hours and never get tired of it.

I don’t think on why I’m here or where it hurts…

I didn’t write about music in 2015 (for reasons I may go into at another time) but I did listen to a lot of it. When I sat down to put together a ‘best of’ list I discovered I didn’t have the words, links and images to draw from as in years past. All I have are rambling thoughts and feelings.

So during the next couple of weeks I’ll be presenting (in no particular order) videos from what I ‘feel’ was the best music of 2015.

Jason Isbell has been writing beautiful, honest, and sometimes painful songs for years.  While a small part of me is annoyed it took this long for everyone to notice him, the rest of me is thrilled he is getting recognition for his craft.
