Best of Q3 2015

Some highlights for me from the last several months.
1Oneohtrix Point Never
Garden of Delete

I’ve always been impressed with Daniel Lopatin’s abilities as a composer but never felt like he came through with anything EXCEPTIONALLY good. Until this. A perfect summation of his past work into one amazing package. 4.4 / 5
2The World Is a Beautiful Place...

I like the new vocalist and I like the tightening of the songwriting this time around. I just feel like this took everything I wasn’t as crazy about on their last record and did it better. 4.2 / 5
3Chelsea Wolfe

Miss Wolfe has put together an album that takes many listens to full appreciate. Her most monolithic and noisy record yet turns out to be her best. 4.3 / 5
4The Dear Hunter
Act IV: Rebirth in Reprise

A bit of a return to form for the band after the last Dear Hunter album Migrant. Tons of replay value here. Probably my 2nd favorite of the Acts after Act II. Puts on full display Casey’s abilities at orchestration and songwriting. 4.1 / 5
New Bermuda

Sunbather was an important record for me. It broadened my tastes into a realm of metal I’d previously only enjoyed from a very select few. New Bermuda has moments of similar bliss as found on Sunbather but with much more emphasis on the aggression. Overall, not the game changer for me that Sunbather was but still a very solid metal record with some really great moments. 4.1 / 5
6Tame Impala

Such a blissful, fun record that provided a much needed soundtrack to my July and August excursions. 4.1 / 5
Shadow World

This will undoubtedly get more spins from me as the winter months approach. 4.1 / 5

A bouncy and energetic idm record that’s just damn fun to listen to. 4 / 5
9Scale the Summit

Another solid outing from StS. I’m much more enthralled by this than I was the Migration. 4 / 5
10Team Sleep
Woodstock Sessions, Vol. 4

It’s been 10 years since we last heard a Team Sleep project and hearing this handful of live cuts makes me hopeful and hungry for more. These songs translate immensely well in a live setting and if they make good on the promise of a tour I will absolutely go see them. 4 / 5
Love, Fear and the Time Machine

I need to jam this more but on first listen it was a solid 3.9 / 5
12Mick Jenkins

Solid EP. 3.9 / 5
What Went Down

It’s definitely a Foals record 3.9 / 5
14Big Grams
Big Grams

Nothing amazing but I really like the aesthetic of these sounds. Phantogram did a fantastic job with the instrumentation and Big Boi behind the mic worked surprisingly well. 3.8 / 5
15Travis Scott

While not really a fan of his past projects, this album really utilized Travis’ skills at sound arrangement in some neat ways. I personally feel he does this aesthetic better than most of his peers. I can’t sit through a whole Future tape without getting bored but this managed to hold my attention for the majority of its runtime. 3.8 / 5
16Carly Rae Jepsen

This is the first CRJ record I’ve sat down and actually listened to and I gotta say, I dig this a lot more than most radio pop I hear these days. I’m surprised this isin’t getting more attention on the radio as it seems like all I hear is Taylor Swift anymore. And this to me is so much better. 3.7 / 5
