I Swear I'm Good At This

14Falls of Rauros
Vigilance Perennial

one of the most captivating releases this year. still gonna spin for years to come i can tell. (post-black metal ig)
13Shadow of Intent

prob best dxc record of all time ngl guys (deathcore, metal)
12The Menzingers
After the Party

springsteen would be proud (punk, americana)
11Tyler, the Creator
Flower Boy

if we got a live album w the band from the tiny desk concert this shit would easily be aoty but until then i’m gonna blast “boredom” until i die (alt hip hop/alt r&b)

“mother”, “well done”, and “1049 gotho” are soty simultaneously just sayin
(my review: https://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/74428/IDLES-Brutalism/ )
(angry punk about why people suck raaaa)

(the trilogy as a whole) literally is the most bangin shit like tell me while all these random ass dudes came outta nowhere and we just let this boyband annihilate the rap game like it’s nothin. “BOOGIE” the fireiest shit tho fr.
(alt-hip hop)
Material Control

grew off me a bit but still owns soooo hard. the return they needed and the return they deserved. long live 1993 REPRESENT 😤😤
(post hardcore)
7Vince Staples
Big Fish Theory

vince just took the rap game and slapped it with his dick how do u feel
(hip hop but w house beats)

bitch u thirsty please grab a sprite
6King Krule

idrk what’s going on here but whatever it is it’s better than anything any of us probably did in 2017 (psych, dreamy rock)
5Land Of Talk
Life After Youth

this album pried open indie rock’s mouth and no one batted an eye lmao
(my review: https://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/75611/Land-Of-Talk-Life-After-Youth/ )
4The National
Sleep Well Beast

god this album grew on me so hard, everything from the haunting life affirmations in the lyrics, to mat berninger’s as brooding as ever vocal performance, to the anxious electronics that hold this thing together. this record is peace in anxiety. (indie rock, post punk, electronic sad dad shitshow, w/e)
3Gang of Youths
Go Farther in Lightness

jesus christ this album speaks to everyone and anyone, absolutely bombastic yet humble in tone. best record of its kind in a while.
2Dad Thighs
The Ghosts That I Fear

do u rly expect anything else from me than to make dad thighs my #2
(my review: https://www.sputnikmusic.com/review/74557/Dad-Thighs-The-Ghosts-That-I-Fear/ ).
(emo, punk, carrisa’s wierd but with skramz, etc.)

there’s so much under the surface of Melodrama that it’s almost fuckin stupid like the first time i listened to this record and the most recent listen have completely altered the way that i consume not only this album but most pop music as a whole.
(pop, electronica)

so this is growing up i guess. happy new year, try not to die lads. best of wishes :^)
