Best Of 2018

Best bummer: THE JACKETTES LIVE THE ENDLESS BUMMER

We knew there was something wrong when The Jackettes released And Then He Found His Flubber Soul in 2015, but Jackson Davis, leader of the St. Petersburg indie-pop collective, let us know that everything was gonna be just fine on this 2018 album that embraces life’s low points while also wrapping listeners up in a warm embrace of beach tunes, guitar freakouts and dreamy folk-nouveau. thejackettes.com. —RR
