Around this time of year, all sorts of blogs post their favorite releases of the year. There will be no such nonsense here. As you can probably tell if you've looked around here to any extent, I don't even attempt to keep up with new releases. There's a whole lot of bands that have been around for decades that I still haven't gotten around to. But, I do run into the Black Lips quite a bit, and most of the stuff I've heard is raucous enough. They've popped up on quite a few "Best of" lists, which, you know as well as I, is not a good reason to post them. I am posting them because they still use guitars. Apparently for a lot of things. That must be encouraged.
