Q2 2015

Albums that I came into contact with between April-June. I think a few may have dropped prior to April though, but didn't listen to it until just recently. Feel free to toss out any recs.
1Jim O'Rourke
Simple Songs

I gave this a spin based on a recommendation from a friend. Very surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Contender for AOTY.
2Titus Andronicus
The Most Lamentable Tragedy

This is a behemoth. Just truly a tough album to digest but once you are able to get into it, its highly rewarding.
3Speedy Ortiz
Foil Deer

Sadie Dupuis lyrics have gotten better since their last album. Favorite track is The Graduatues (which may be my SOTY). Excellent follow up.
Last Forever

Wonderfully shoegazey. Definitely for those who like the 90s shoegaze revival we're having.
5 93MillionMilesFromTheSun
Fall Into Nothing

Picked this up on bandcamp. Another great shoegaze album.
6No Joy
More Faithful

What can I say, I'm a shoegaze junkie.
7Hop Along
Painted Shut

Left field album for me, someone described it to me as similar to Sharon Van Etten, which I don't see at all. Still though, it was a nice surprise.
8Jenny Hval
Apocalypse, girl

Soft dick rock.
Feels Like

Someone said it was like the Japandroids, which I disagree with. Still a fun rock record.
10the i.l.y's
I've always been good at true love

I don't really like Death Grips, but this was a nice surprise. Reminds me of DFA1979

Post rocky/shoegaze.
12Young Fathers
White Men Are Black Men Too

Sounds very TV on the Radioey.
Metz II

Decent follow up. Not as big on this as their debut though.
14Built to Spill
Untethered Moon

I'd nearly written this band off. But this was much better than I was expecting.
A Northern Meadow

This was released in March but I didn't get to it until like May. Excellent stuff.
16Mikal Cronin

His sugary guitar pop is becoming less enjoyable, but there's still some good tracks to pull from this.

I loved her debut album quite a bit, but this was a bit of a task to get into. I still like it, but it pales in comparison to the debut.
18Unknown Mortal Orchestra

A mixed bag but enough great tracks like Puzzles to keep me listening.
19Sun Kil Moon
Universal Themes

I actually liked this more than Benji. Steve Shelly's presence definitely helps.
20The Tallest Man on Earth
Dark Bird Is Home

He becomes decreasingly mediocre with each album, but i still enjoyed this. It's not on the level of Shallow Grave or The Wild Hunt, but it's still a decent listen.
