From Alex G to Zach Bryan, here’s what writer Josh Terry listened to most this year.
Great list. Already found some new faves.
I cannot wait to chew through this list and find fresh tunes while I watch the World Cup today. Thanks Josh! (also can’t wait for the Whitney shows in a couple weeks)
The Orielles inclusion is so on point. Super super under-covered. Nice list here.
I was gonna wait until I read the whole post to comment but DAMN you're right about Alex G. So many bad imitations. Reminds me of all the Promise Ring ripoffs circa 98 where all the singers tried to affect a lisp. Congrats on the new venture!
I discovered a bunch of new-to-me music here, and I'll probably really dig most of it. Your efforts are not in vain.
I appreciate the approach to this! Reminds me of when I co-wrote a music blog in 2009 just for the love of the game.
i’m so excited that you’re on substack! i’m a big fan of your work. i just saw they hate change open for bartees strange last night and can confirm, one of the best acts of the year. EOY writing is by far my favorite time of the year—loved reading your list.
