Drive-By Truckers had a solid 2016, dropping their American Band LP and landing on a a bunch of year-end lists.

Now the Truckers’ Patterson Hood is sharing his own year-end list with us from what he described as a “shitty year.” He shouts out the ubiquitous likes of David Bowie, Solange, Beyonce, Frank Ocean, Radiohead and A Tribe Called Quest, along with slightly more idiosyncratic choices like Richmond Fontaine, John Paul White, Cass McCombs and Hiss Golden Messenger. Check out Patterson’s list:

Patterson Hood – 2016 Year End (A Great Soundtrack to a Shitty Year)
David Bowie – Blackstar
Solange – A Seat At The Table
Angel Olsen – My Woman
Hiss Golden Messenger – Heart Like A Levee
Beyonce – Lemonade
Cass McCombs – Mangy Love
Radiohead – A Moon Shaped Pool
Frank Ocean – Blonde (Blond)
Richmond Fontaine – You Can’t Go Back If There’s Nothing To Go Back To
John Paul White – Beulah
A Tribe Called Quest – We Got It From Here
J. Cole – 4 Your Eyez Only
