2015 Q2

2015 has slowed down a little bit, but there is still a lot of cool stuff to check out.
1Jim O'Rourke
Simple Songs


Most accurate album title of the year. 3.5/5

Best Songs: Friends with Benefits, End of the Road
2Florence and the Machine
How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful


How bad can an album with Florence at the helm really be? She's such a great vocalist. Even though some of the songs are bland, most of them are actually really good. I like it better than Ceremonials I think. The addition of brass really helped as well. Still could have been even better 3,5/5

Best Songs: T/T, Long and Lost, St. Jude
3The Tallest Man on Earth
Dark Bird Is Home


I dunno guys, I think it's pre sweet 4/5

Best Songs: Slow Dance, Little Nowhere Tows, Timothy
4Kamasi Washington
The Epic


2nd most accurate album title of the year. 4.5/5

Best Songs: Changing of the Guard, Miss Understanding, Re Run, Cherokee
5Currensy
Pilot Talk III


Rap about smoking weed. Nothing incredibly original, but great production work acrouss the board. 4/5

Best Songs: Long as the Lord Say, Pot Jar
6Hiatus Kaiyote
Choose Your Weapon


A bit overwhelming a times, but very very good nonetheless 4/5

Best Song: Shaolin Monk Motherfunk
7Alabama Shakes
Sound & Color


Southern blues/rock with a great vocalist at the helm

Best Songs: Don't wanna fight no more, Future People
8Susanne Sundfor
Ten Love Songs


Actually a Q1 release, but I just came around to it a bit late, very enjoyable vocal performance. 3.5/5

Best Songs: Accelerate, Kamikaze
9Built to Spill
Untethered Moon


Still keep on keepin on. 4/5

Best Songs: Some other Song, C.R.E.B., All our Songs
10Blur
The Magic Whip


Went better than expected. Very solid release. 3.5/5

Best Songs: Ong Ong, Mirrorball, Lonesome Street
11 Timbre
Sun & Moon


Very nice folk, pretty experimental 4/5

Best: Song of the Sun, Chicago Pier
12Thee Oh Sees
Mutilator Defeated At Last


Surprisingly not garbage. 3.5/5

13Ben Salisbury and Geoff Barrow
Ex Machina


Excellent Soundtrack to a good movie. Very atmospheric stuff. 4/5

Best Songs: Bunsen Burner, the touring Test.
14Hop Along
Painted Shut


Indie-Rock with stellar vocals and excellent lyrics. Maybe doesn't quite reach the raw emotional impact of "Get Disowned" but it's really good still 4/5
15Titus Andronicus
The Most Lamentable Tragedy


Omg. 4.5/5
16Nicolas Jaar
Nymphs II


I'm usually not too hot on his stuff, but this is very good. 3,5/5
17Mewithoutyou
Pale Horses


Meeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeh. It's pretty good I guess, but what's the big deal about it? 3/5
18Natalia Lafourcade
Hasta la Raiz


Excellent vocals, excellent songwriting, very fun and satisfying listen. 4/5
