We’ve pretty much always had a “top album” list here at Freedubya, but we’ve essentially been doing a more detailed version of it for the past five. Five years. That’s a milestone! Something to reflect on, I suppose. It feels like this list gets weirder and weirder every year, as Williamsburg gets… well, more and more “normal,” via J Crews, Apple Stores and Chipotles. I’m not sure what that says about us? Probably that we’re increasingly contrarian? I’d like to think it’s that we’re more authentic. Such is the time-tested conundrum of the North Brooklyn resident. I guess you, the reader, will be the judge of that. Anyway – peep these albums. We liked ’em a whole lot.
Greetings, please don’t forget to vote today (and if you still don’t know what’s going on, perhaps this handy guide can help). You can reward yourself afterwards by making plans for a show.
Trump is still standing, the internet is no longer free and open, and we’re one year closer to the dreaded L train shutdown. But hey, at least we can finally dance… to these twenty-five albums.
