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.
I gave this a spin based on a recommendation from a friend. Very surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Contender for AOTY.
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.
Sadie Dupuis lyrics have gotten better since their last album. Favorite track is The Graduatues (which may be my SOTY). Excellent follow up.
Wonderfully shoegazey. Definitely for those who like the 90s shoegaze revival we're having.
Fall Into Nothing
Picked this up on bandcamp. Another great shoegaze album.
What can I say, I'm a shoegaze junkie.
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.
Soft dick rock.
Someone said it was like the Japandroids, which I disagree with. Still a fun rock record.
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
White Men Are Black Men Too
Sounds very TV on the Radioey.
Decent follow up. Not as big on this as their debut though.
|14||Built to Spill|
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.
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.
|18||Unknown Mortal Orchestra|
A mixed bag but enough great tracks like Puzzles to keep me listening.
|19||Sun Kil Moon|
I actually liked this more than Benji. Steve Shelly's presence definitely helps.
|20||The 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.
