Best Of 2016

Best vintage cheeky: TWISTY CHRIS AND THE PUDDIN’ PACKS

Best vintage cheeky

Not only is their mix of heavy surf-punk and garage-doo wop fast, tight and perfectly on point, the songs on their 2016 self-titled debut are cheeky as hell and pretty damn funny, too, while offering twisting and shuffling reflections on the near and farther past; “Abe Lincoln,” “Jugs of a Killer,” “Jimmy Wants a Haircut” and (just say yes to the) “Nancy Reagan Twist” all prove highlights in an album chock full of ’em. facebook.com/TwistyChris. –Leilani Polk
