The Joup Friday Album – The Body: No One Deserves Happiness

5-the-bodyIn getting the last minute hand-off to fill-in for Sonny, I decided to do something a bit different. Normally, I use most of my social media/internet time for spreading my Master’s word. Today though, I thought to myself, “Philp, why not go ahead and punch out for the night, take human form and find a nice woman, some mead, and roll into the weekend with an album that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy.

No pun intended.

Shawn’s Favorite Albums of 2016

david-bowieWhat a year, eh? While 2016 was easily the most devastating year I’ve seen in my 40 on this planet. To kick things off David Bowie died before the damn News Years clock had hardly even stopped ringing. Follow that with Prince, Richard Lyons, Sharon Jones, Phife, Leonard Cohen, Leon Russell, Merle Haggard and just before the closing bell, George Michael. That’s not even all of them, but it’s more than enough to illustrate that the Universe had A LOT to make up for. Ying and Yang, right? You cut down a tree, you plant one in return. Well, I don’t know if the scales balanced, but I certainly found a ton of great new music this year. A heaping helping of it it is published by the wonderful Felte Records, so you may want to bookmark their website and keep an eye on them. Also, my two main gatekeepers/curators at this point are Heaven is an Incubator and Part Time Punks, two more great tools for finding amazing new sounds to make your ears happy.
