Jordan Adams on His Favorite Local Albums of 2016

Posted By on Thu, Dec 29, 2016 at 6:30 AM

Greetings! It's year-end wrap-up time, so obviously we need to churn out some listicles. As Seven Days assistant music editor, I had the pleasure of writing about Vermont's music scene for one-third of 2016. Within that time, I covered several albums that became fast favorites — and here they are.

5. Bleach Day, Where to Dream

Louie Kiley and Vinny Marksohn released their blissed-out, dreamy debut via their own cassette tape label, AF Tapes.

4. Sten Bowen, Four Living Creatures

Sten Bowen's "search for God" is chronicled in his home-recorded collection of neo-classical influenced pop.

3. Madaila, Traces

Things get heady and conceptual on the band's soulful sophomore album.

2. Little Slugger, Perfect Days

Their sophomore LP is chock-full of tight tunes from across the pop spectrum.

1. Orange Julians, Object

Julian Rumney DeFelice's radio-ready electro-pop is devilishly catchy and cautiously introspective.
