The Little Rock Top 10 

Here are the Little Rock albums we listened to more than any others this year, the ones that meant the most to us and that we'd push on any out-of-towners who asked what was new in the Little Rock music scene. This leaves out dozens of weird and inspiring records by the likes of Wasted Colors, Doc Casino, Chris Denny, BLACK PARTY, Ginsu Wives, Dead Anchors, Cool Chris, Bombay Harambee, Glittercore, Big Piph and countless others who live in Fayetteville or who we've never heard of or who released their album too early in the year for us to remember it. We are sorry to all of them. Despite all the sadness in the Little Rock music scene this year (rest in peace, Gerald Johnson, Larry "Goose" Garrison and T.C. Edwards), it was genuinely fun, too, and it's only getting better.

Amasa Hines - "All The World There Is"

Kari Faux - "Laugh Now, Die Later"

Jim Mize - "Jim Mize"

The Body - "I Shall Die Here"

Adam Faucett - "Blind Water Finds Blind Water"

Bonnie Montgomery - "Bonnie Montgomery"

Pallbearer - "Foundations of Burden"

Goon des Garcons - "Meanwhile..."

Country Florist - "CF-1"

The Coasts - "Racilia"

  • Take yourself there: Mavis Staples coming to LR for Central High performance

    Gospel and R&B singer and civil rights activist Mavis Staples, who has been inspiring fans with gospel-inflected freedom songs like "I'll Take You There" and "March Up Freedom's Highway" and the poignant "Oh What a Feeling" will come to Little Rock for the commemoration of the 60th anniversary of the desegregation of Central High.
  • Klan's president

    Everything that Donald Trump does — make that everything that he says — is calculated to thrill his lustiest disciples. But he is discovering that what was brilliant for a politician is a miscalculation for a president, because it deepens the chasm between him and most Americans.
  • On Charlottesville

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis. A parade of love-deprived nerds marching bravely out of their parents' basements carrying tiki torches from Home Depot.
  • Lynchings hidden in the history of the Hot Springs Confederate monument

    Hot Springs twice erupted into the kind of violence that has its roots in the issues left unresolved by the Civil War, and both times, it happened right where that monument to Confederate soldiers stands today.
