Time flies, bitches. Everything on here is at least a solid 3.0, loosely ranked, certainly forgetting about a few records. Rec's are welcome, haven't been as prolific as last year.

Fuck that album name tho.
Genre: Experimental, post-everything
Highlights: England's Hidden, Cromagnosis, D'day-Drone

Velvet Portraits

What if "To pimp a Butterfly" were to become a jazz album?
Genre: Jazz duh
Highlights: Push, Mortal Man, Curly Martin
Jet Plane and Oxbow

Shit keeps growing on me
Genre: Indie Rock
Highlights: Filaments, Long Time Away, Wildlife in America, Pale Kings
A Moon Shaped Pool

Thought this was very basic at first, but is actually very good and contains a lot of subtle tweaks to their sound. Depressing as fuck tho. Also the tracklisting is really weird.
Genre: Radiohead
Highlights: Daydreaming, Decks Dark, The Numbers, Ful Stop

That Sax.
Genre: Jazz, Post Rock
Highlights: Atak, Rajza, Krew,

Guy can write a song and is also very good at the guitar. Album is satisfyingly heartfelt and well done, even it's very tried and true and has no original bone in it's body.
