7. Old Man Luedecke My Hands are on Fire and Other Love Songs (Black Hen)
The rosy-cheeked melodies of Old Man Luedecke's third album open up the kitchen door and invite you in to put your feet up. Once you're comfortable though, they bend your ear with some surprisingly biting observations about love, life and the appalling state of the world. The Nova Scotia singer-songwriter lays down plenty of hot licks on his signature banjo, but the fiddles and vocals of American Tim O'Brien give Luedecke's music a stronger bluegrass flavour than we've heard from him before.

This is a pretty great list with the exception of the exception of Daniel Romano's Working for the Music Man from this - one of the best records of the year. Though I do understand it might have seemed like a pile on with Baby Eagle and Daniel, Fred and Julie already being there.

Also, the DeadMau5 ad requiring muting on every fucking page is super annoying.

"Nameless Poseur" nailed it....listening to Romano as I speak, and this is a classic in the vein of Hazlewood/van Zandt/Lightfoot that was sadly overlooked.

I totally agree with the previous comments about Daniel Romano's album. It was on my personal top ten, and I highly recommend it.
