Gotta love all the Menzingers love =) Needs more Hot Water Music though... Exister is every bit as good as on the impossible past.
Did no one pick Brendan Kelly's album because they didn't really like or it because no one listened to it? Has such a great Skeezy-old-guy-sitting-in-the-corner-of-a-strip-club Tom Waits/Greg Duli style vibe to it.
@Jason I assume the only reason Handwritten isn't on your list is that you only included releases from the first half of the year?
If I could list 15, I would have included Brendan's record in there somewhere.
