RSTB Best of 2017

So this year is drawing to a close, or almost, we’re still a few weeks away from pushing the broken pieces of 2017 into the trash. There’s no real solace from a lot of the events that took place this year, but, independent of any current events, music has been kind to us all this year. These are the records that spent the most time on the turntable over here. Yeah, I know its kind of a lot, but there were far too many good ones that haven’t been getting the shouts they need elsewhere. Lets say this serves as both a best of and a most overlooked in one go. If you enjoy ’em, buy ’em if you can. Don’t do them the disservice of just bumping up the streaming numbers.

Circuit des Yeux – “Paper Bag”

Haley Fohr’s Circuit des Yeux has been bubbling under for a while now, but with her Drag City debut she (with help from Bitchin’ Bajas’ Cooper Crain) knocks the production up to the next level and puts this track into the bin of delightful experimental pop tracks finding their way out this year. The song starts with a swirling bit of cosmic psych that has Crain’s fingerprints all over it, but when Fohr’s knockout voice comes in, the track grows into another animal entirely. Rolling on a bed of guitar and a chugging beat, the track gathers darkness and strength around her booming delivery. The visuals from U.S. Girls’ Meg Remy suit the track amiably, giving the surroundings an offbeat weirdness that feels just the right kind of disorienting. Gonna have to look out for the rest of this one as it unfolds towards the October release.
