Best Album of 2015 To: Put On When You’re Driving To The Record Store With Friends
First Bite: “Willy Spends An Evening”
Constant Bop blindsided me this year. I’ve always appreciated bands like The Black Keys, who tend to favor harder-hitting rock, but I love when they try on some pop music. This is an entire album of just that. White Denim frontman, James Petralli, steps away from his standard brand of music and delves a little further into the world of pop.
When I first heard it, I couldn’t keep it to myself. By the time I was listening to the third song, I was copying and pasting a link to Facebook. It makes me feel good in the way being in a car with friends on a cool, sunny day does.
