Farce the Music's 30 Favorite Albums of 2023


-------


1. Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit - Weathervanes

I haven’t “loved” a Jason Isbell album since Southeastern, and didn’t really expect to feel that way about one again. Sure, almost everything he and the group have released has been critically beloved and well executed, it just hasn't affected me the same. That said, I love Weathervanes. Everything feels more natural and unforced than the previous few records; right in the pocket you might say. Every song has its own personality, yet fits right into place in the collection. The highs are stratospheric, and the lows aren’t lows - just letting off the gas a little. For the politically sensitive, any supposed ideologies only color the stories this time. There’s no telling, just showing - and that’s always hit me a lot harder than any expression of opinions could ever do. Weathervanes is damn near perfect, and for me, a welcome “comeback.” Favorite tracks: King of Oklahoma, Cast Iron Skillet, When We Were Close, Miles.

Farce the Music's 40 Favorite Songs of 2023


-------

1. Lucero “Macon if We Make It”
I’d never call it a comeback, but Lucero’s last album, When You Found Me, was very disappointing for this hardcore fan. The exploration of classic and somewhat progressive rock left me flat - I don’t blame them or slight them for following their artistic leanings anywhere they want to go - it just wasn’t for me. The new record, Should’ve Learned by Now, is an absolute return to form. My favorite song of the year, “Macon if We Make It” is a rip-roaring, country-tinted heartland rocker of an anthem I can’t wait to sing along with at shows. If this was a best lyrics list, this song would not be here, but sometimes it’s about what you do with them, and Lucero gave us their heart and soul and made it catchy as hell.



2. Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit “King of Oklahoma”
What more can be said about this one? Everybody has their own thoughts on Isbell and his music, and to be honest, I was of the thinking that he’d never make another album I thought was a masterpiece. I was wrong. Weathervanes is amazing, and “King of Oklahoma” rides a bullet into the stratosphere of Isbell/Unit classics. Conversational, timely, and dropping in a smidgen of dark humor, “KOH” will be on the setlist for years to come.



3. William Prince “Tanqueray”
The dude with the smoothest vocals in Americana/Canadiacana? music nailed his 2023 album, and this tune fought off “Easier and Harder” and “When You Miss Someone” to be crowned as my favorite.



4. Joe Stamm Band “Dollar General Sign”


5. Bella White “Marilyn”


6. St. Paul & The Broken Bones “Magnolia”
If you don’t like this song, you should try sex.


7. Cory Branan “Gatlinburg” (song starts at 1:20)


8. Gabe Lee “Merigold”


9. Charles Wesley Godwin “Family Ties”


10. Lydia Loveless “Summerlong”




12. Turnpike Troubadours “The Rut”


13. Deer Tick “The Real Thing”




15. Chris Stapleton “The Bottom”


16. Metallica “You Must Burn!”




18. Caitlyn Smith “High”


19. Zach Bryan, Maggie Rogers “Dawns”


20. Lori McKenna “Happy Children”




Next 20 (Unranked)



Jake Worthington “Closing Time”

The War and Treaty “Dumb Luck”


Jason Hawk Harris “Roll”




Whitney Rose “Can’t Remember Happiness”


Flatland Cavalry “Only Thing At All”


Jaime Wyatt “Love Is a Place”
