'Tis the season—for Slackpole! But before we let readers take over the joint and head out for our annual holiday break, here's a selection of two local videos and a brand-new song guaranteed to put you in the Christmas spirit.
This week, we published a list of our 17 favorite local albums of 2017, which you should make a point to dig into while knocking back a few 'nogs over the holiday break.
For the fun of it—and because lists!—here are my top 10 non-local records of the year, with accompanying audio. You can also check out this Spotify playlist that includes a bunch of my favorite songs of the year.
Punk provocateurs Kwazymoto released Limerence Land, one of our favorite local albums of the year, back in October. Now, not two months later, the group is back with yet another collection of new material: the three-song concept EP The Death of Darby Crash. (Check out the album art above.)

When he's not charting cosmic sonic territory with Future Ape Tapes, Athens musician Donald Whitehead is laying down loose, lucid psych-rap grooves as Space Brother, which Flagpole's Gordon Lamb called "a nice counterpoint to the not entirely post-hip-hop, but definitely wide-open experimentalism of the Apes."
