1 Brandi Carlile: The Firewatcher’s Daughter

(album review)

Buy @ Amazon

Brandi Carlile Official Site

I debated including the Muruch-curated albums, but they are truly the two albums I have listened to most frequently and loved most intensely this year. Besides, it’s the artists and their music that make them so undeniably spectacular. I was just the DJ. That being said, every time I’ve been asked during the year what I think my #1 album of 2015 would be, my immediate answer has been: “Brandi Carlile’s The Firewatcher’s Daughter.” I love it more with each listen and it has the timelessness of the greatest classic albums.

I also just binge-watched the entire 8th season of Doctor Who and I love Peter Capaldi as the new Doctor! The whole season was the best since the Christopher Eccleson days.
