"An Ode to Physical Pain
10Nothing
Guilty of Everything


Similar to Ought, these guys burst out of the gate this year by paying homage to classics of their genres, in this case shoegaze, while adding enough vitality and new elements to breath some fresh life into an entire genre. "Bent Nail"
9Locktender
Rodin


Post-Metal with lyrics about incredibly interesting works of art, vocals that match the intensity and urgency of the songs, and incredible post rock sections that build into crazy good metal climaxes? Consider me sold. "The Burghers of Calais"
8Ought
More Than Any Other Day


Those first three songs are some of the strongest pieces of fun and epic post-punk that take roots in the classics of the genre while still sounding remarkably new and fresh. "Habit"
7Joyce Manor
Never Hungover Again


My love for pop punk may be slowly fading away, but no one this year did a better sing along summer punk album than Joyce Manor. With a far more diverse set of songs that are all memorable and insanely catchy, Never Hungover Again has easily been my most listened to album of the year and displayed some maturity and strengthening of an already solid band to boot! "In the Army Now"
6Ben Howard
I Forget Where We Were


While not really giving his debut any attention, Ben Howard's sophomore album creates a beautiful atmosphere through a fantatic combination of spacey guitar work and a haunting vocal performance. "Small Things"
5Trophy Scars
Holy Vacants


Never liked (and still don't) most of their earlier works, but this one drew me in and hooked me with its story, insanely awesome and all over the place vocals, and superb instrumentation that served and elevated the strong sense of purpose Trophy Scars clearly desired to display with Holy Vacants. "Vertigo"
4Have A Nice Life
The Unnatural World


Despite being nothing like the monumental Deathconsciousness, The Unnatural World cements Have a Nice Life as a band who knows how to make groovy, gloomy and ethereal post punk tracks carry just as much weight and importance as those on their more ambitious debut, just in a far more digestible package. "Defenestration Song"
3The Hotelier
Home, Like NoPlace Is There


The Hotelier have crafted pop punk/emo's most important album in quite some time while by crafting a diverse and cathartic album that flows perfectly and manages to pack in catchy hooks and energy while still displaying moments of Mineral-worshiping emotional explosions. "Dendron"
2Saintseneca
Dark Arc


My album of the year since the first time I heard it, Dark Arc takes elements of all my favorite kinds of music into a perfect blend of folk, emo, indie and more that always leaves me with a smile on my face. "Daendors"
1The Smith Street Band
Throw Me in the River


Wil Wagner's amazing lyrics have always been what drew me into Smith Street's orbit as a devout worshiper, and on Throw Me in the River the rest of the band clicks into place to create a classic album finally on par with their perfect debut. "Throw Me in the River"
