what i've heard this year so far, ranked. Still need Dodos, PtH,
Raekwon, Tim Hecker, and The Weeknd
You know something's wrong when the guy who made Food & Liquor and
The Cool is on a list lower than the guy who did "Black and Yellow".
We get it, Wiz. You like weed. Now go away.
Probably the most generic indie pop album I've ever heard.
Kind of like if Wavves didn't suck as much.
I was excited when I heard this described as "Animal Collective with a
female vocalist". It's pretty alright, but it doesn't even come close to an AC
Has a bunch of really good songs, but then some utter garbage. "You're So
Right" is one of the worst songs I've heard this year.
Dye it Blonde
Love the more polished sound on this album. It has some great tracks
among some mediocre ones. This band has a lot of potential.
|13||Toro Y Moi|
Underneath the Pine
Like this one a little more than Causers of This. Nice and chill.
This album's great, I probably would've liked it more if it wasn't so similar to
bands like Dino Jr.
The Magic Place
A really nice album, but she's not as good as the other people who make
the same kind of ambient/drone that she does (especially Grouper)
|10||Iron & Wine|
Kiss Each Other Clean
This one's died on me too. Still a pretty cool album.
The King is Dead
Loved it at first, but it's died on me more recently. Probably the weakest
Decemberists release imo.
The People's Key
It doesn't touch the Fevers and Mirrors through I'm Wide Awake era, but
it's Conor's best album in years and hopefully it gets him back on track.
This album was surprising, because I found her debut really boring and
Let England Shake
Easily her best album since the Dry/Rid of Me era.
Empty Days & Sleepless Nights
This album brought me back into hardcore after a little absence.
Wasn't really into Destroyer's work before this, but this is fantastic.
So simple, but so beautiful.
The King of Limbs
Screw everyone, I love this. My third favorite Radiohead album.
