2015 Q1

2015 started off kinda slow in January but it's been nothing short of amazing ever since. List is only stuff I considered at least a solid 3. But it's not in a particular order
1Moderator
The World Within


Trip-Hop, downbeat, jazzy. Very laid back feel, mostly instrumental but not boring at all. A lot of really great production. Strong 4/5, maybe even 4,5/5
2Kendrick Lamar
To Pimp a Butterfly


Yeah Yeah Yeah. Rabble, rabble, rabble 4,5/5
3Godspeed You! Black Emperor
'Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress'


Again. Such a big release, what am I supposed to tell you 'bout it. Read Sowings review goddamit. 4/5
4Madeon
Adventure


Electronic, pop. You may want to wait on this for a few more weeks until the weather is better. Very upbeat, danceable, electronica stuff. It's comparable to Calvin Harris or Avicii in style, but it's not lazy as fuck and brings some good tunes. 3/5
5Jasmine Guffond
Yellow Bell


Ambient, Drone, Dream-Pop. Grouper meets Tim Hecker, amazing atmosphere, very accessible for an Ambient release. Highly rec'd. Very good review by JamieTwort 4/5
6Romare
Projections


Minimal, Electro, Experimental. 3,5/5.
7T'Saatsuna/Reverend Desaad
Churnmilk Peg!!/Hypatian Codex: Compendium Dub


Electronic, Most-over-the-top-album-title-ever. Very interesting release by our very own pots. If you're into good beats you owe it to yourself to give this a spin. It's legitimately one of my favs this year so far. 4/5
8Hanni El Khatib
Moonlight


garage-rock, blue-rock. Think Black Keys, but way better. 3,5/5
9Sufjan Stevens
Carrie and Lowell


Sadcore, Folk. Another big release, it's almost as good as everyone says. To me it's a bit to samey, but definitely moving. 4/5
10Modest Mouse
Strangers to Ourselves


Indie-Rock. I dunno guys, I thought this was good. Most people seem to be kinda disappointed. 4/5
11Laura Marling
Short Movie


Indie-Folk, Folk-Rock. Finally, a Laura Marling album that I like. While she still kinda boring and meandering at times, the inclusion of the electric guitar really helped this album. 3,5/5
12Spidergawd
II


Stoner, Hard-Rock. Heavy, yet melody driven stoner-rock with an awesome vocalist. It's a bit to samey, but has enough strong songs to still be a great album. 3,5/5
13PINKSHINYULTRABLAST
Everything Else Matters


Shoegaze, Dreampop, Electronic. Very experimental take at Dreampop, a lot of great melodies and an overall happy feel to it. 4/5
14Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds
Chasing Yesterday


Brit-Pop, Rock. Noel comes through with another solid solo-album which to me is his best work since what's the story.... 4/5
15Sleater-Kinney
No Cities to Love


Rock, punk-rock. Solid all the way through, delivers anything you could want from a Sleater-Kinney record in 2015. 4/5
16Mondo Drag
Mondo Drag


Psych, Prog. Short but sweet debut album. Varied and experimental, entertaining throughout. 4/5
17Toundra
IV


Post Rock. Standard as fuck, but I can't help it, every once in a while, I love me some post rock. These guys are very solid at their instruments and the whole album flows together very nicely. 3,5/5
18 Elder (USA-PA)
Lore


Stoner, Rock. A bit generic, but dam, they really bring the riffs. 4/5
19Lower Dens
Escape from Evil


Indie, shoegazy. A step up from their second album, better songwriting and pretty satisfying. 3,5/5
20Jefre Cantu-Ledesma
A Year With 13 Moons


Ambient, Experimnetal. Read Johnnys review! 3,5/5
21Until The Ribbon Breaks
A Lesson Unlearnt


Electronic, Pop, Indie. Until the ribbon breaks prove, that they are masters of blending a host of different genres into enjoyable, and accessible songs. Intially forgot to add this LP to the list for some reason. 4/5
22Viet Cong
Viet Cong


Noise, shoegaze, post punk, sputcore 3,5/5
23Carpenter Brut
Trilogy


Synth, Electro. Cheesy but awesome. 3,5/5
