@KellyHrudey Something made you really mad 30 years ago... do you remember what it was?

We always have overlap, but I suspect some of your picks will be outside my wheelhouse :)@gogglesford so great eh? Maybe the most underrated of the golden age of 80s Brit post rockers.@gogglesford That's cool. They're one of a hand full of new semi-popular Brit art rock bands that are doing very cool things right now.@gavinanderegg My pleasure mate. It's a fun project for me. Hope you find some things you enjoy. Thanks for the RT.@ihearthestia I'll probably hate the whole list by then, and have deleted it, so take your time.@gogglesford So you were a fan of the Everything Everything record eh?@im_adam_barrett Sort of tested myself this year to see if I could bring it in at 50. There were some unfortunate casualties along the way.@RyanMcNutt Thanks man. I thought it was an odd year to be honest. A lot of really solid records, but not many knock outs for me.@bitdepth That's cool. Love to hear if there are some new things you end up enjoying.@brightwhite I feel like I have at least some music taste overlap with just about all the cool people I know :)The 50 Best Albums of 2015. Or at least the 50 I thought were best :)

Retweeted by Paul Ryan@Nicki_Doyle @MatthewHalliday @brightwhite Still love Gish.@hpxjosh Same. I still throw the net pretty wide every year (not as wide as I used to) but I get a read quickly if it's my thing or not.@NatalieBorden1 @ChrisFHFX Jen and I just sit and drink wine, while not bothering with a tree. I feel like we're the winners here.@hpxjosh I usually play 3 albums every day, new or old before I even head to work ;)@hpxjosh Goes in waves. Revert back to old stuff when I get tired of new stuff. Have music playing almost 12-16 hours a day at work or home.@MathieuLLF Sadly no. One of the biggest advantages you have living in Toronto, is getting a chance to see pretty much every great band :)@MathieuLLF Yeah they've been on cruise control for a while. Their first 4 albums are basically almost flawless in my book.@oneredcatmedia @brightwhite @Nicki_Doyle I love Plaskett as a dude and a writer, but these days I really only care about the Hermit albums.@MathieuLLF Yeah. I used to quite like Get Ready, but find it harder to enjoy now. Siren's call was better than in got credit for imo.@brightwhite That album with three seperate records he did was completely unnecessary @Nicki_Doyle@Nicki_Doyle Yeah, that's why I'm thinking 50. Usually 50-100 ends up being stuff I just "kind of like". I can rank 50 reasonably.@MathieuLLF two of the most pleasant surprises! I was a passing Swervedriver fan during their heyday, but I love this new one so much.@ihearthestia I sense that you and I are close in age, so I was probably reading your 1250s era blog.@BruceFraser I usually do 100, but I didn't like 100 albums this year. Was trying for 50, but it might end up being like 70.@ihearthestia Love that album. It will be up there for sure @Nicki_Doyle@MathieuLLF Hoping to post it on my music blog tomorrow :)@Nicki_Doyle An annual tradition for about 8 years running now ;) Started with the top 50. Grew to a top 100. Back to 50 this year I think.Tonight I decide on my favourite albums of 2015. This might not be exciting to most people, but it's a whole lot of fun for this music nerd.A new Animal Collective album dropping in February. They have released the song Floridada, and it is pretty great. Thanks, will do@huskermould Was just reading that. I believe you are correct.
@harrison3 I believe it was. Think I paid $10 CAD. Would have paid more if I had know how brilliant it was going to be.@WayneCarterRad @jerryleewilson Rough weekend here at our place. Sticking to some wine with dinner. Back to heavyweight status next Sunday.@jessicaeburke what a beautyWe are hiring for our Dartmouth shop. Send a resume to #nscraftbeer

@JenEWright Spotify seems better than most of what's out there that isn't Rdio. Try soundiiz for playlist transfer @huskermould @free_cream@wcburns @monochromegod Battles were better than the Steins.@monochromegod Exactly. Don't lump me in with the rest of you dirty fucking hippies.@monochromegod what is the 60s?Finally spent some time listening to the new Battles album. Love it. Their strongest release to date imo.I refuse to commence the Xmas season until I see a new Kenny G compilation of holiday classics has been released.
@nickcalder @Ken_Donnelly Three CFL teams. Halifax, Dartmouth, and Enfield.@Ken_Donnelly @nickcalder Ruff Ryders@nickcalder it's really our only hope@Greg_Beau @SmoggyRandall @LyneBrun I thought, some kid's piss poor grade 3 art project.@jv_ht First I saw them was playing Subway to Venus on a late night music show, and I was blown away. Had never heard anything quite like it@jv_ht Mothers Milk is my favourite. Bought it on vinyl the year it came out and fell in love with them.@jv_ht Haha. Okay, but full transparency, I stopped liking them after Blood Sugar, so you might unfollow me ;)@jv_ht Wanna talk about RHCP albums? Because I'm going to be up for a long while.@LyneBrun Cool that they know they need to do something to attract new fans. Not sure this will help.Just saw the new CFL logo. I may not watch football much anymore, but I do the same thing. I think it's the time between albums. They are never yet always top of mind for me at the same time. Weird.@MegBlumenthal @RyanMcNutt It's the RH album where everyone perked their ears up and said "well these guys are a special band aren't they?"@RyanMcNutt All fair. Good stuff on the Coltrane btw. I grabbed the NIN, Eric's Trip and Dead Kennedys too. Price was too good not to.@RyanMcNutt I moved it up to first place this year. Currently I have The Bends at 2 and Computer at 3, subject to change after this bottle.I listen to a whole lot of new music. I buy lots of records, but usually pre 1990. Except today because In Rainbows. The second one eh? Catch up.@danielmacdonald That's really cool. Have never seen them. Have only heard how great they are live.@danielmacdonald brilliant bandI don't actually find the videos of Black Friday fights and madness funny at all. Sad and unfortunate perhaps.@Chaf Animals deserve this planet more than we do. Certainly the planet it would have been without us.@murph194 Yeah, I always had a sense they had a strong foothold in Canada because they were here before Spotify.@TheSandyWalsh @JailhouseParker Mostly lost me after Long After Dark.@JailhouseParker I have a love hate relationship with Petty. The high points are fantastic. The low points are atrocious.@im_adam_barrett all of that said, I am in a much more favorable and agreeable place with all this than I was last week ;)@im_adam_barrett it might actually be the only desktop app I use right now anymore for anything@im_adam_barrett Still getting used to how much emphasis there is on the desktop application. The Rdio browser player + mobile is all I use."We've got a new version of Spotify ready to go. Re-start and it's yours" Perfect. Is the new version Rdio by any chance.@mattnx2k @joelkelly @nickcalder @brightwhite No time to go back through this thread for context, but thanks for the shout out...I think.The new Tame Impala video for The Less I Know The Better is brilliant, and nsfw. My favourite track on this record. to @triranocyclist and the team at Halifax's SecureReset on their being acquired by Atlanta's @Courion love that Paul Weller is his source for finding new music - Noel Gallagher predicts end of vinyl revival by 2020 MacGowan with new teeth is still hilarious

I try to keep life simple :)@Nicki_Doyle I love when people discard animals they've committed to when life gets busier. Maybe keep the pony and not have a kid?BBC's Black Mirror is the craziest and most fascinating show on television.
