Some of my favorite musical memories of 2016, in order of appearance:
- The Snails at Kung Fu Necktie, March 4th, 2016.
The Snails (no, not that corny Philly band of the same name!) are the most fun rock and roll band I have come to know. Featuring Sam Herring and William Cashion of Future Islands and a few more of their friends, the amicable arthropods produced a concert experience that was as sweaty as it was musical. They captivated the room, even playing one song twice in a row in the middle of their set (“Wow, that one was so good, we’re gonna do it again!”). Their album, Songs from the Shoebox, is no slouch either.

Some of the best musicians from a year or two ago are coming back around.
Fred Thomas’s new song, “Brickwall,” is one of his best yet. If it sounds familiar, it may be from his fantastic 2015 shows. His album Changer follows up 2015’s amazing All Are Saved, and is out January 20, 2017 on Polyvinyl. More info can be found at the Fader.
