40 Records To Spin: 2016
1Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds
Skeleton Tree


A stunning display of grief and raw emotion.
2Hammock
Everything and Nothing


It's beautiful. But it's Hammock, so that goes without saying. They make it seem effortless.
3Radiohead
A Moon Shaped Pool


I'm pretty sure I've cried about four times listening to this on separate occasions.
4Gorguts
Pleiades' Dust


The masters are back.
5David Bowie
Blackstar


All hail the king.
6Causa Sui
Return To Sky


Spaced-out and rocking out all at once,
7Aesop Rock
The Impossible Kid


Better than Labor Days? You bet.
8The Dear Hunter
Act V: Hymns With The Devil In Confessional


Bombastic, brilliant.
9Ulver
ATGCLVLSSCAP


Ulver's most underrated record, bringing kraut, synth, drone, and ambient into a swirling mess.
10Kevin Morby
Singing Saw


Sleeper hit for best folk/folk rock record this year.
11Snarky Puppy
Culcha Vulcha


Fusion done right.
12Yawning Man
Historical Graffiti


The legends return with... accordions? Somehow, this works out beautifully.
13Woods
City Sun Eater In The River Of Light
14SUMAC
What One Becomes


Recording your drums in an abandoned church can do wonders.
15Kendrick Lamar
untitled unmastered.


When your b-side record is better than 95% of full length albums in your genre.
16Niechec
Niechec
17Frank Ocean
Blonde


Frank Ocean making a solid claim to being the best high-profile R&B artist working today.
18Glass Animals
How To Be A Human Being


How to have fun.
19Shearwater
Jet Plane and Oxbow


Shearwater shows that going commercial isn't always a cardinal sin.
20King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard
Nonagon Infinity


Insanity at its most rocking.
21Death Grips
Bottomless Pit


Speaking of insanity...
22Kitchie Kitchie Ki Me O
Are You Land Or Water


Dance kraut.
23Massive Attack
Ritual Spirit


This EP and its sister release hint at a stunning return to form for one of the greats.
24Vektor
Terminal Redux


Like Voivod but thrashing like it's 1980.
25Ryley Walker
Golden Sings That Have Been Sung
26Gold Panda
Good Luck And Do Your Best


Sometimes you just need to relax.
27Cobalt
Slow Forever


Changing your vocalist and putting out your best album.
28Weezer
The White Album


This had no right being as good as it is.
29The Pineapple Thief
Your Wilderness


I'm not sure if Gavin Harrison gave this band the kick they needed, but boy, does this album kick.
30Dalek
Asphalt For Eden


The sickening, industrial production returns.
31SubRosa
For This We Fought the Battle of Ages


Some people might think strings don't belong in metal. Those people are wrong.
32Anderson .Paak
Malibu


I've got beats, stuck in my head, and he's got the feeling.
33Gozu
Revival


Riffs: served piping hot with a hint of cannabis.
34Joe Bonamassa
Blues of Desperation


Easily Bonamassas's best record in quite a while. All original material and a healthy serving of riffs.
35Charles Bradley
Changes


Soul with vintage style.
36BADBADNOTGOOD
IV


Not as good as III, but a solid collection of tunes with excellent guest spots.
37Anna Ternheim
For The Young


The best singer/songwriter album you haven't heard this year.
38Katatonia
The Fall of Hearts


After a meandering, dull album preceding it, Katatonia is back on track with a fantastic record.
39The Drones
Feelin Kinda Free


Not quite as good as I See Seaweed, but a poignant release all the same.
40Dinosaur Jr.
Give a Glimpse of What Yer Not


They need no introduction. You know it's good, if a bit too similar to prior works.
