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
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.
Highlights: Daydreaming, Decks Dark, The Numbers, Ful Stop
Genre: Jazz, Post Rock
Highlights: Atak, Rajza, Krew,
Skip a Sinking Stone
So chill, perfect summer album.
Genre: Indie Folk
Highlights: Lone Dreamers, Getting Gone, Many Returns
Only listened to it twice, can confirm that it's very, very good tho.
Genre: Synthpop, Neo-Soul, R&B
Highlights: Hands up, But You, Best to You
Good Luck And Do Your Best
Need to listen to it more to figure out if it's very good or truly excellent. It's at least very good though
Genre: Downtempo, House, Trip-Hop
Highlights: I'm a Real Punk, In my Car, Unthank
|9||Car Seat Headrest|
Teens of Denial
Doesn't quiet have the replay value I initially thought, but it's very good.
Genre: Indie Rock
Highlights: Vincent, Drugs with Friends, The Ballad of Costa Concordia
Highlights: Blackstar, 'tis a pitty she was a whore
Everything and Nothing
Terrible Album name. Par for the course hammock album, which means it's really good.
Genre: Ambient, Post Rock
Highlights: Turn Away and Return, We Were So Young, Before You Float Into Nothing
Genre: Trap, Hip Hop

Genre: Tishoumaren (this is actually a thing apparently)
Highlights: Akhar Zaman, Timtar, Timidiwa
The Colour in Anything
Terrible Album Cover. Gud Album.
Genre: Alt-Pop. Experimental
Highlights: I Need A Forest Fire, Timeless, Modern Soul
Painting of a Panic Attack
Slightly disappointing, but still good. Scott Hutchinson is a marvelous lyricist.
Genre: Folk, Indie Rock
Highlights: Death Dreams, Get Out, Die Like A Richboy
Blues of Desperation
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.
Genre: Blues (duh!), Rock
Highlights: Mountain Climbing, Drive, T/T
Not boring. Surprisingly.
Highlights: I've been to the Mountain, Singing Saw, Destroyer
Hit and Miss, a bit overdramatic.

Very Heartfelt goodbye to a very decent project.

Genre: R&B, Hip Hop
Highlights: Drive Me Crazy, Got It Good, One Too Many
Spiritual Songs for Lovers to Sing
Liked him (much) better when he was in WU LYF and the lyrcism was less preachy. Still has a some great tracks on it.
Genre: Your dog fronts a Indie Rock band
Highlights: Lament, Future Blues
Also a bit Hit and Miss, but the Hits are really big Hits.

|Rec me stuff.|
|Loved a lot of these, and most of the rest I haven't checked out, so I'll give them a shot. Can't wait to listen to the new BADBADNOTGOOD. If you haven't, perhaps check the new Xenia Rubinos. New Suuns was pretty great, too, as was Thao and the Get Down Stay Down, as were the reviews for them. And new Fire! Orchestra, too, if you haven't listened. |
|Thx, will keep all of those in mind.|
|Some good shit one here man, a lot of my faves of the year.|
|13 is badbadlowkeyterrible tbqh.|
seeing 12 on here as the only trap rap representative is also quite insulting.
that aside, nice little list. good stuff eddy. :)
|checking 7, 12, 15|
cool list, I've been mildly disappointed with most of the 'big' releases this semester.
|Also if you want some more jazz, you should check Dr. Lonnie Smith's Evolution. Nice bit of funky jazz.|
|"seeing 12 on here as the only trap rap representative is also quite insulting."|
bro, having 12 on here means I like 1 more trap album this year than last year.
"I've been mildly dissapointed with most of the 'big' releases this semester"
A few disappointing big ticket releases this year for sure, hence no Tim Hecker, Parquet Courts, RHCP or Kanye and Frightened Rabbit was also not as good as I hoped.
Thx man will check, Esperanza Spalding could be on here as well, but I got lazy and thought 24 was a nice enough number. But fuck it, Now it's in.
|could've at least picked a good trap album, brutha ;)|
|didn't like it at all? ULT is fire man.|
|i mean, yeah, it's a decent track, but i've never been a big fan of denzel, and honestly, that album only served to cement my opinion of him...|
it's like the 2iest 2 i'll ever 2.
|I'm probably becoming a pain in the ass with how much I've been recommending this album to people, but I need more people to listen to The Thrill of Living by Mimisiku.|
|I dunno if something that is tagged as Emo and Alt-Rock will be my kind of deal, but I may check it.|
|12 is fire, 9 is one of my AOTY, 16 is really good but has grown off me a bit, 4 is decent I guess but prob will make the latter end of my list|
|really dont know what ur into but http://roklokrecords.bandcamp.com/album/introduction-to|
|sounds like the Cocteau Twins but really lo fi. Kinda dig it.|
|Olga Bell- Tempo|
Suuns- Hold/ Still
Thao and the Get Down Stay Down- A Man Alive
Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith- Ears
|Thx, didn't care for that Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith album tbh, but will check the others.|
Also added The Hue - Aurora, because I somehow forgot it, even though it's like one of the top 5 easily.
|Some great stuff here. You didn't care for the Drones?|
|I can't get past the vocalist tbh.|
|Ah, that would make sense I find the vocals the best bit|
|Listen to new Blood Orange instead.|
|I'll listen to it soon, loved the first album. Shucks I even quite liked some of his Lightspeed Champion material|
|"Genre : Radiohead"|
Too accurate, lol.
|Good to see the genre tags are well received, lol. More rec's people.|
