In retrospect the best thing about 2016 was that it wasn’t 2017. Even the final two months of 2016, which seemed horrific at the time, were an idyllic era of joy and tranquility when compared to the base-level anxiety with which we now begin every day, a correlation which does not even take into consideration the rest of the day, when that anxiety is both corroborated and intensified before coffee. Another good thing about 2016 was Alex Cameron’s Jumping the Shark. His new album, Forced Witness, is out in September, and here’s the lead single. Enjoy.
