As the year winds down, we too are slowing our roll and looking back at everything 2015’s given us. In this spirit, we asked some of our friends and family to tell us what their favorite albums of the year have been — new or old — and why. We got in on the fun too. This isn’t a best-of ranking by any means, just a dabbling of what’s moved us. How Nice.
Rachel Fannan of Only You shares her love of Michael Jackson's Thriller for our Hit City Record Club series. "My inner spirit is always waiting for an MJ bump," she writes — whose isn't?
Hit City Record Club — Teenage Heartbreak, Cheap Beer & Fake IDs: How Cut Copy's 'In Ghost Colours' Shaped Cooper Saver’s Style
Today we introduce a new recurring feature called Hit City Record Club, in which our artists and friends tell us about one album that’s had a significant impact on their lives.
Here, one of our favorite Los Angeles DJs and producers Cooper Saver details how Cut Copy’s In Ghost Colours changed his life. In so doing, Cooper tells a familiar story with his own unique distinctions — channeling a formative age while explaining how that album helped define his musical taste and sense of self, as well as nudge him to get a fake ID and sneak into dance clubs. As he says, “I owe this record a lot.”
