Nine Records and One Reissue I Liked This Year
   Album of the Year    Kyle Craft - Dolls of Highland (Sub Pop) Allow me to be honest. If had first read about Kyle Craft on Pitchfork or somewhere else, perhaps seen a music video, I might have been predisposed to dislike him intensely. However, I...

The Fallacies of The Vodka Bar (or Breakfast at First Watch)
In my experience, when beloved music venues close, be it because of shitty landlords, domestic strife or whatever, what follows rarely succeeds. Property owners get it in their head that it’s the location that made the previous spot successful, not the tena...
