All of us at The New Nine have some pretty eclectic music taste, so album of the year can be difficult. Since the year is now coming to an end, our contributors weigh-in on their top albums of the year.
This year as I overcame my constant social anxiety and journeyed to ACL, I couldn’t help but feel….frustrated. I love a good festival, I really do. This year ACL’s lineup seemed highly done before. I’ve seen most of these bands a good 4 or 5 times this year (except you Radiohead). However, the weather was nice, I had applied 10 layers of sunblock and was ready to hit the crowds.
