Nice. "Cherokee Nose Job" is one of my favorite songs from 2016.

Have you heard Teenage Hallelujah by The Dexateens? Excellent record and Brad also plays in that band.

Yes, I really like Teenage Hallelujah, but it is more of an EP and it is 7 years old, so I decided not to add it to my list.

Mike
Are you confusing Teenage Hallelujah with Sunsphere which came out a few years ago? Both contain older, unreleased material. Sunsphere has 8 songs and clocks in a 25 minutes. Teenage Hallelujah contains 14 songs and is 41

minutes long. In my book, that qualifies as a full album.

* Edited to add, maybe you are talking about this:

The Teenage Hallelujah album I am referring to came out this year and it's this:

Good catch! Yes, I did confuse it with Sunsphere. Teenage Hallelujah would definitely make my TOP 10.

That Steve Gunn record was not on my list but probably should have been. I really liked it and have been listening to it a lot recently.
Yeah, I gotta go back and revisit that Gunn album.

Like Sandy Denny era Fairport Convention.The guitar solos are insane
So far, this is my favorite post-2016, 2016 discovery. The guitars on this record are, in fact, insane.

dang, I was disappointed by the BoH album and Head and the Heart, both did not move me.

Radiohead's grew on me, but I really enjoyed the DBT American Band.

Schmilco will be something I hardly remember.

Richmond Fontaine
"You Can't Go Back If There's Nothing to Go Back To"
Great final album from a very underrated band.
