Lament – Mount Moriah by EmergencyBroadcastSongs
Y’all know there is absolutely no way I agree with this Top 25, but what I do agree with is that there are a lot of great albums on the list. There are also a couple of albums I haven’t heard yet and am looking forward to checking out.
The Mount Moriah album is a must buy and there is a reason it’s number 1. Make sure to check that out along with Yardwork, Des Ark , Megafaun, Braveyoung, Mountain Goats, Dex Romweber and Hammer No More the Fingers. These bands are no strangers to South Carolina and all had solid releases this year.
Making these lists is an impossible challenge in my mind. Keeping up with one of the Carolina’s is a challenge as it is, but to listen to all of the albums released in both states and then proceed to rank them is nearly impossible. But isn’t that the problem with all year end list? Shuffle Magazine has always leaned NC, so take it for what it is, 25 really good releases mostly from NC.
