It’s hard for me to choose a favorite off the new TOPS LP, but third track “Pirouette” has been stuck in my head for the whole week, so I thought I’d share it here. If you’re unfamiliar, TOPS have been one of my favorite bands since their sophomore record Picture You Staring back in 2014. That album soundtracked countless nights in with my friends and the band will always remind me of the good times I had in the past. I even got to book them for a show at my college + hung out and drank comically oversized pitcher drinks with them at a bar afterwards.
Aside from the nostalgia factor, this band is just so fun and makes some top notch pop music. They have approximately ZERO bad albums. It’s currently sitting at my #2 album of the year so far, we’ll see how it progresses through the year. They just keep getting better and I keep returning to this record over and over, so it’ll likely keep growing in favor in my mind. Also for those keeping count – my two favorite records this year are from Canadians. Shout out to Canada!
