As you may already know, I have been scrobbling all of my music plays to Last.fm for the past 10 years. This year, Last.fm has a new report called Last.year that does all my homework for me! I have still recorded the usual stats below for future proofing.
I had some trouble scrobbling again this year. The scrobbler I was using at the beginning of the year stopped reporting Apple Music plays for tracks that weren’t downloaded to my library at some point. I switched to Silicio in September, and everything has been running smoothly ever since. I’m not sure exactly how long my previous scrobbler was broken before I realized it, though.
My top artists for 2016
|2||Thy Art Is Murder||525|
I am very happy to see Dale Watson at the top of this list. I have always felt my top artist lists really jive with what I think I liked the most in a given year. Data often tells a different story.
My top albums for 2016
|2||Dale Watson—Live at the Big T Roadhouse, Chicken Shit Bingo Sunday||388|
|3||Thy Art Is Murder—Hate||352|
|6||Michael Daves—Orchids and Violence||239|
|7||Anaal Nathrakh—The Whole of the Law||197|
|9||Thy Art Is Murder—Holy War||173|
|10||Ween—All Request Live||168|
You may recognize some of these albums from my new music Tuesday posts. Making yourself write about new music really does open your eyes to new suff. Don’t get stuck in your 20s!
Anaal Nathrakh is a new one that is really growing on me. I found it during a pretty severe Misophonia period. The holidays are not a good time for me. This record is super noisy, angry, and a little silly. I do recommend checking it out of you like extreme metal.
My top songs for 2016
|1||Ghost—From the Pinnacle to the Pit||63|
|4||Agoraphobic Nosebleed—Not A Daughter||44|
|7||Thy Art Is Murder—Immolation||41|
|8||Thy Art Is Murder—Infinite Forms||41|
|9||Thy Art Is Murder—Reign of Darkness||37|
|10||Thy Art Is Murder—The Purest Strain of Hate||37|
Ghost gets a lot of plays because I have a soft spot for Satanic music. Thy Art Is Murder was in heavy Misophonia rotation for a good part of the year.
