Let's get this Panda Party started! Only two days left in the year, so you best be partying. I know most of us have to work today, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't Panda Party.

With that in mind, here's another one of my favorite records of the year:

This was definitely the year for women in music, as far as I'm concerned: Wild Flag, Shilpa Ray, Dum Dum Girls, CSS, Le Butcherettes, Vivian Girls, and probably a bunch more that I'll remember after my coffee is consumed. All put out great albums this year, all worth checking out. But I have a special place in my heart for Shilpa Ray, who is intense in a way that pretty much no one else can do effectively right now.

So, Panda Party! Drop in.
