MYSTERY LAWN ARTISTS MAKE YEAR-END BEST-OF LISTS

It’s a notable accomplishment when your album gets remembered for critics’ best-of-year lists months after they came out. This year, the Corner Laughers, Alison Faith Levy, and the Orange Peels all got a December shot in the arm. Here’s what we got:

Begin the Begone by The Orange Peels came up in the Top 10 albums for 2015 at the mighty WFMU on the Evan “Funk” Davies Show, and also over at Powerpopaholic.

Alison Faith Levy scored a Top 10 spot on the Zooglobble year-end best list for her second kids’ album, The Start of Things.

And the Corner Laughers racked up a No. 1 spot on John Borack’s list on Goldmine, as well as prime spots on the KZSU Time Traveller and others (see their Facebook page for details)!

Here’s to a great 2016!
