26 years into this ę game Ľ, and I havenít mentioned Lenoard Cohen once.

Time to rectify this with a song from his great farewell album You Want it Darker

Iíll skip the universally acclaimed title track and give the nod to Leaving the Table.

First Chair. Last Call.

Some belting albums in 16

Hopelessness - Anohni
My Woman - Angel Olsen
Skeleton Tree - Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
Adore Life - Savages
Paradise - White Lung
A Moon Shaped Pool - Radiohead
The Hope Six Demolition Project - PJ Harvey
Puberty 2 - Mitski


But the song of the year for me comes from Japanese Breakfast and the album Psychopomp.

HEFT - JAPANESE BREAKFAST

I wanna churn like Amish butter
I wanna move out of your way
I wanna find whatís there in your stomach
If itís the same dark and itís too late

What if itís the same dark coming?
The same dark
What if itís the same dark coming?
The same dark
Oh, fuck it all then

I spent the summer trying to be sweeter
I spent the summer staying in
I ran a mile and then another
Spent my nights by hospital beds

What if itís the same dark coming?
The same dark
What if itís the same dark coming?
The same dark
Well then, fuck it all
Fuck it all

It was this, Sturgill Simpson's "Oh Sarah," or "Daddy Lessons." Sorry, Sturgill and Beyonce.

"Existence in the Unfurling" - Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith, the synth goddess we need right now.
