January 1, 2019

Welcome to the new year of our overlords 2019, from me, BeeDub, in my recently adopted new home town of Cotati, CA  aka "the hub of Sonoma County"... get it? It's shaped like a space station! And welcome to this quarter's installment: THE VERY BEST OF 2018! Before we get to the songs, how's about the obligatory TOP TEN LIST:

1. Spiritualized - And Then Nothing Hurt
2. Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy
Post-Animal - When I Think of You In A Castle
4. Mt. Mountain - Golden Rise
5. Träden/Träd Gräs Och Stenar - Träden
6. Dead Meadow - The Nothing They Need
7. King Buffalo - Longing To Be The Mountain
8. King Tuff - The Other
9. Ty Segall - Fudge Sandwich
10. Fucked Up - Dose Your Dreams

The above list barely touches on some of the best releases of last year, so I compiled a THREE HOUR playlist that spans the gamut. Some fantastic music came out in 2018, as it does every year in the realm of Space Rock, Psychedelia, Garage, Post Rock, ExperiMENTAL Musix, and all things weird and wonderful. Crazy sounds to prevent us from going crazy, no?
