2021 Latecomers: This Is Why Y'All Can't Have Nice Things

It's the time of year when I feel beholden to acknowledge the records that would have made my end of year list... had I heard them earlier. To be fair, Hayes Carll left it pretty late in the day to release his new long player (end of October), so I didn't get round to buying it until I got some Amazon vouchers for Christmas. Which I guess is the modern day equivalent of a record token. Which, I was about to say, probably don't exist anymore. And then I discovered that they do. So next year, I'm asking for them instead. Screw Jeff Bezos

Anyway, I bought the Hayes Carll album without stream-testing it first, because with his track record, I knew it would be good. And it is. It'll probably go unnoticed by the masses, but this is why y'all can't have nice things...


  1. I've got a couple of waifs and strays from late last year to catch up with as well. I enjoyed Nice Things and particularly the video, which is very well put together. The tune reminds me of something though...but I can't quite remember what it is.

    1. Yeah, it has that instantly familiar quality.
