Whoops! I forgot to start my countdown on the 22nd, so I guess I’m counting down until New Year’s Day this year. That’s fitting, after having essentially abandoned my music blog once I began my employment at West Philadelphia High School. They’ve been working me a lot there, so some of my other interested had to take a back seat.
Leading off my tenth annual countdown is Tilly and the Wall’s Chandelier Lake. Distinguishing Tilly from the pack is their tap-dancing lead percussionist. Chandelier Lake‘s jaunty gait hides some ghostly and macabre lyrics.
