The kind of country album that Americana fans are scared of
16Bryce Dessner, Australian String Quartet and Sydney Dance Co

One Dessner brother is creating the biggest albums of the year, the other is making sweeping string arrangements with orchestras

Bon Iver/Taylor Swift collabs give me life

Sad white guy with a guitar but (get this!!!) he added electronic influences to his music

Olivia Rodrige with better lyrics and more interesting music (I still love Olivia Rodrigo tho)

Two melodramatic songs longer than 15 minutes? You have my attention
10Julien Baker
Little Oblivions

Julien Baker's weakest release and still an easy top 10 of the year
9Valerie June
The Moon And Stars: Prescriptions for Dreamers

Psychedelic soul blues and country that is fortunately not nearly as pretentious as the title makes it seem
8Kiely Connell
Calumet Queen

Just in case Brandi Carlile wasn't sad and raw enough for you
The Idyll Opus (I-VI)

The sonic incarnation of a kid from the midwest who grew up doing musical theatre but also loves folk and emo music (aka me)
6Emma Ruth Rundle
Engine of Hell

Fills the yearly quota of "this is so depressing" remarks from my friends
The Act of Forgiveness

A pop musical mastermind that made me binge American Idol clips on youtube
4Origami Angel

The most pop punk that pop punk has ever pop punked
3Emily Scott Robinson
American Siren

An album that makes me feel like a single mom that works two jobs
2Trophy Scars
Astral Pariah

The band that lets me say I listen to both hardcore and blues

Love it or hate it over-the-top-dark-grandiose-baroque-art-pop (I love it)
