An Aging Hipster’s Top 50 Albums of 2019

As society hurdles ass over ears into the smog congested, plastic particle infested, fact contested, crap basket of incivility, we can at least take solace in the fact it was a mighty good year for new music.  My year-in-review list of albums is a bit different than most. I’ve limited mine to albums I actually OWN on CD — there are countless more I streamed online, but these are the ones I stepped up and put a ring on at the cash register.  Event Of The Year: The Prince Estate Opens The Gate...

I want to hear the truth." (Liz Phair - Horror Stories, p. 115) In 1993, 26-year -old Liz Phair released Exile in Guyville, a starkly frank and spectacularly self-assured album that eventually went gold, becoming Matador Records' most successful release t...
