Alright, lets do this.. we’re going to look back on some of my favourite albums of 2015. The criteria is this.. the record had to come out in 2015 and I had to love it.. that’s it..
Day 9 – Record 9
THE ARKELLS – STUDY MUSIC
Ok.. admittedly I’m cheating today.. yes The Arkells ‘Study Music’ is GREAT.. it’s a 5 song acoustic EP featuring songs from the Arkells 2014 record ‘High Noon’ and that’s really what record 9 is.. High Noon. I know it came out in 2014 but it RULED 2015. You could say the album really hit its stride in 2015. It’s been 16 months since High Noon was released and I still can’t get enough of it.
The Arkells are one of the best bands not just in the GTA, Province, Country but on planet Earth and High Noon proves that. Jackson Square was great.. Michigan Left was even better but High Noon is the bands absolute best effort to date. It’s energetic, fun, confrontational, catchy, melodic. It’s a record worth your time and deserving of a top 10 spot on my countdown.. but honestly even as I write this Im reconsidering High Noon ONLY being #9.. I’ll stick with it but know I had second thoughts..
Leather Jacket (Live)
Cynical Bastards (My favourite Arkells song ever)
