This year we’re going full Aquarium Drunkard (AKA the only music year end list worth reading). Except, these are just one person’s choices (unlike Bolachas Now Playing, which is a team effort). And he’s only doing this because it’s a slow week at his real work. Meaning, “going full Aquarium Drunkard” is, really, just adopting the format: a list of 100 un-ordered records bound together in groups of 4. Plus a short tweet about each of them. There are a few Spotify playlists at the end of the post, plus Bandcamp links to those records whenever available.
Stuff to listen to when your mind is warped enough (and your ear is muscled enough) to find neo-freakfolk with sweet guitar licks hugely enjoyable. Get a cold one, lay down, close your eyes, and enter the beehive’s spirit. You won’t get stung, we promise. Spirit of the Beehive’s record is pleasure percolated through aural honey, mind the cliché. And, just like honey (pun intended), it will age well.
