|State Faults- Cemetery Lights. |
|Fire! Orchestra - At Last I Am Free|
Kishi Bashi - Annie, Heart Thief of the Sea
Default Genders - checking in with the old gang
|Cemetery Lights is a close second for me, I'll admit. Little Simz' "Flowers" is my top album closer so far this year.|
|Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties - “Routine Maintenance” (The title track)|
The Gloaming - “The Song of the Glens”
Bad Books - “Army”
|Pelican - Full Moon, Black Water|
|all 5 of those are great, nice|
Periphery - "Satellites"
Kishi Bashi - "Annie, Heart Thief of the Sea"
Pedro the Lion - "Leaving the Valley"
and Bad Books - "Army"
have also all stuck out to me
|From the 3 albums I heard from this year: |
Maurice Louca - Al Khawaga
|What Dope said.|
|new American Football and La Dispute albums had killer closers|
|Agree with Injury Reserve|
Vampire Weekend - Jerusalem, New York, Berlin
Jai Paul - BTSTU
not a lot of good ones on my end :/
|definitely Bad Books - “Army”|
one of my new favorite songs (so far SOTY for me)
|Astronoid - "Ideal World"|
Brutus - "Sugar Dragon"
Little Simz - "Flowers"
Secret Band - "Moon" (though the rest of the album is absolutely terrible)
Newer stuff like the title track from Jambinai's ONDA and Cave In - "Led to the Wolves" are pretty good too. I'd have to start my SOTY search to give you better answers, though.
|Arch/Matheos - Kindred Spirits|
Devin Townsend - Singularity
King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard - Cyboogie
Periphery - Satellites
Damn strong closers \m/
|Haven't listened to much music this year, I'm just here to steal information.|
|Aaron West and the Roaring Twenties - Routine Maintenance|
The National - Light Years
Pup - City
|REM - Find the River|
Slint - Good Morning, Captain
Mogwai - Mogwai Fear Satan
The Who - Love Reign O’er Me
The Who - Won’t Get Fooled Again
New Order - Run Wild
Bowie - Rock N Roll Suicide
Nirvana - All Apologies
Sex Pistols - EMI
Underworld - M.E
Radiohead - Street Spirit
Radiohead - The Tourist
Countless others but the ones I’ve mentioned are faves
|This is about closers from this year, zak|
|Omg that Underworld one though. < 3|
For me it would be
Efdemin - The Sound House
Slumberland - When The Frozen Lake Starts To Sing
|Jimmy eat World - 23|
|Cass McCombs 'Rounder' is THE perfect closer for that album.|
Hors on the Avey Tare is a good one too.
Not a vintage year for album closers so far tbh
