My Favorite Murder / That's Weird

Let's be real, 2017 was a pretty garbage year. David Bowie didn't die (again), so it was a little better than 2016... but still... not great.

Except for when it came to music! SO MANY good songs and albums were released this year and it's gonna be incredibly hard to narrow down my favorites, but here goes nothing.

9 Songs:

  • Alex Lahey - Everyday's The Weekend
  • Alvvays - In Undertow
  • Fleet Foxes - Third of May / Ōdaigahara
  • Future Islands - Ran
  • Phoenix - Ti Amo
  • Portugal. The Man - Feel It Still
  • The Shins - Half A Million
  • St. Vincent - Los Ageless
  • Sylvan Esso - Die Young

Honorable mention: Harry Styles - Sign Of The Times

4 Concerts/Shows: 

  • Future Islands at The Neptune in Seattle
  • The National at The Schnitz
  • Tom Petty/The Lumineers at Safeco Field
  • My Favorite Murder (the podcast) live!

Honorable mention: Sylvan Esso @ #dec2rem

7 Albums:

  • Arcade Fire - Everything Now
  • Alvvays - Antisocialites
  • Beck - Colors
  • Courtney Barnett & Kurt Vile - Lotta Sea Lice
  • Future Islands - The Far Field
  • The Killers - Wonderful, Wonderful
  • Father John Misty - Pure Comedy

Honorable mention: John Mayer - The Search For Everything (don’t hate, it’s actually really good)
