WHOOA, WE'RE HALFWAY THERE

Was gonna make a mid year list but not much has tickled my pickle, honestly. List is instead records that need more love.
1Angelo De Augustine
Swim Inside the Moon


Indie Folk -- Sufjan Stevens and Nick Drake fans rejoice
2Paul Simon
Graceland


Folk / African Vibes -- yeah this is a certified classic, but it hasn't even cracked 500 ratings. tut tut sput.
3Chicago
Chicago Transit Authority


Jazz Fusion -- again (to many) an indisputable classic, but barely over 100 ratings ehh
4Ray Lynch
Deep Breakfast


New Age / Ambient -- the most fucking serene thing you'll hear in your life, ever. for real.
5Flatsound
i clung to you hoping we'd both drown


Emo / Ambient -- mixes a bunch of genres in a bizarre hodgepodge that's kinda harrowing, kinda funny and kinda genius
6Joni Mitchell
Blue


Folk -- another classic that has barely passed 500 hmm
7Thee Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra
He Has Left Us Alone But Shafts of Light Sometimes Grace the Corner of Our


Post Rock -- needs as much love as some of Godspeed's stuff tbh. it's less grandiose and generally lighter touch in its approach, but its just as beautiful and arguably less patience-testing
8Grammatics
Grammatics


Indie Rock -- quirky and carefree
9B.B. King
Lucille


Blues -- this (as well as the bulk of his work) has like no ratings, the heck?
10McCafferty
Thanks. Sorry. Sure.


Pop Punk -- the best blazing, manic and spiralling pop punk release in recent memory. so much more than a the front bottoms copycat.
11Jordaan Mason and The Horse Museum
Divorce Lawyers I Shaved My Head


Folk / Lo-Fi -- neutral milk hotel fans rejoice
12Daniel Johnston
Hi, How Are You


Lo-Fi -- this has more ratings than I realised, but still, sad bois rejoice
13Psychedelic Porn Crumpets
High Visceral Pt. 1


Psych Rock -- friendly reminder that this is still the best album of all time. actually nah just very good jams, catchy noodles
14Ween
Pure Guava


Ween -- one of the more interesting things these guys did, not just weird and silly but genuinely fantastic experimental jams
15Spiral Joy Band
Little Sparrow


Noise / Drone -- ft. strings
