Beau Brady of Excuse Me shares his 10 favorite albums of 2017:

10. Destroyer - "Tinseltown Swimming in Blood"

Last month, Kendrick Lamar snuck a blink-and-you'll-miss-it breadcrumb in the music video for the song "LOVE." In it, a clapperboard held in front of the camera reads: "B. Panther soundtrack coming soon."

Beau Brady of Excuse Me shares his 10 favorite albums of 2017:

10. Black Lips - Satan's Graffiti or God's Art?

MTV is the TV network most widely associated with short attention spans. So it makes sense that its Video Music Awards would function as a jarring and disjointed jumble of moments — a howl of protest followed immediately by a singer's tears of joy, or a heartfelt speech by a grieving mother giving way to a performance of "Da Ya Think I'm Sexy" by Rod Stewart and DNCE. In such a barrage, it's unfair to expect any one performance, speech or spectacle to rise above the others, especially as the telecast stretched past three hours.

Kendrick Lamar's victory lap continues. The rapper closed the first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival Sunday night — like most Coachella performers, he'll return at the same time next weekend — with a set that blew through social media thanks to live-streaming and widespread interest in his new material.
