Favorite Albums of 2013 – #10: Sam Phillips

10. Sam Phillips – Push Any Button

Sam has and always will be an artist who will never hit the big time. She receives acolytes from critics, but seems to lack public appeal which is a shame because she is quite the connoisseur of Beatles-style pop experimentations. On her first publicly released album since 2008 (not counting the collection culled from her members-only series of EP’s called Long Play), she sounds positively elated to be back in the studio and she’s brought with her some of her strongest songs since Martinis & Bikinis. She has even added horns this time to her production which is at times quite beautiful as showcased in “See You in Dreams.” Push Any Button is polished garage pop and is worthy of a listen or five.

Favorite songs: “When I’m Alone” | “See You in Dreams” | “Things I Shouldn’t Have Told You”

The entire list… so far.
