DJ Surly Shirley 01-01-20 (Best of 2019)

Happy New Year, everybody, from the DJ Surly Shirley show! What’s better than a giant bottle of champagne, you ask? A New Year’s Day run-down of my favorite albums of 2019! From Fontaines D.C. to Chuck Cleaver, from Car Seat Headrest to The Dream Syndicate, let’s give 2019 a last listen before running headlong into 2020, a year that’s just gotta be better, right? RIGHT??? Let’s all think good thoughts, do good deeds, and make that happen.
