When Brooklyn DIY venue Palisades announced that Mothers and Palm would play a show together there, I was confused about this pairing. Would the twisted, cerebral, dissonant music that Palm plays make for a proper warm-up for Mothers’ more hushed, obviously personal songs? After catching the show, though, it became apparent that both bands share a good deal of influence and technical prowess.
While the main "Year in Review" feature was picked entirely by Post-Trash editors, we wanted to give all of our contributors a chance to pick their favorite releases, regardless if the records would be something covered here on our site or not. Every contributor was able to pick their personal top 20 records of the year and points were assigned based on rank. Our contributors' tastes range a bit wider than that of our editors, but the connection to this particular site becomes abundantly clear as the numbers unfold.
