EOY 2015 – Ruta 66 (Spain)

Postby Honorio » Sun Jan 17, 2016 7:53 pm

Some days ago I bought the #333 issue (released on January of 2016) of Ruta 66, a Rock'n'Roll Spanish magazine, when I saw at the store that it featured a list of the best of 2015. It surprised me because I've always assumed that the staff of Ruta 66 was anti-lists. So I looked in their web-page just to discover they are releasing end of year lists from some years ago (at least from 2010). So I'll post here the 2015 lists and I'll open a new thread for the rest of the lists.

Best international albums of 2015 according to Ruta 66 staff:
1. Danny & the Champions of the World | What Kind of Love
2. Courtney Barnett | Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Sit
3. Los Lobos | Gates of Gold
4. JD McPherson | Let the Good Times Roll
5. Gospelbeach | Pacific Surf Line
6. The Seepdogs | Future Nostalgia
7. The Sonics | This Is the Sonics
8. Dave Rawlings Machine | Nashville Obsolete
9. Benjamin Clementine | At Least for Now
10. Alabama Shakes | Sound & Colour

Spanish albums of 2015:
1. Rafa Berrio | Paradoja
2. Guadalupe Plata | III
3. Salto | Salto
4. Schizophrenic Spacers | Macumba: Live at Last
5. Loquillo & Nu Niles | Código Rocker
6. Nuria Graham | Bird Eyes
7. Brighton 64 | Modernista
8. Blas Picón & The Junk Express | I'd Rather Be Dead
9. Egon Soda | Dadnos precipicios
10. Dixie Town | Same Old Story

No. 6 is The Sheepdogs. Surprising to see a relatively minor local band in a Spanish publication, Honorio!

Sheepdogs, sorry. Yes, Ruta 66 never followed the trends, they preferred to chose the sounds that fit their tastes, even if the bands are obscure or only with a local following.
