Sowing's Top 25 of 2018

With very brief descriptors because I wrote enough in my blog. This is just here for those of you who prefer a straightforward list.
25Liam Singer
Finish Him

Artsy indie-pop with classical influence.
24Stephen Malkmus and the Jicks
Sparkle Hard

Indie-rock with plenty of guitar wankery
At Weddings

Devastating sad-indie-chick-core
22All The Luck In The World
A Blind Arcade

Acoustic singer/songwriter with pretty melodies
21Lo Moon
Lo Moon

Heavily electronic pop with lite jazz and soul influences
20Madeline Kenney
Perfect Shapes

Electronically-infused sad-indie-chick-core

Not as disappointing as ya'll say

Post-hardcore in 2018 that's actually good
17The Wonder Years
Sister Cities

Surprisingly mature pop-punk with some excellent lyrics
16A Perfect Circle
Eat the Elephant

The best APC album. Political vibes aplenty.
Whatever We Probably Already Had It

Goofy and sincere lo-fi indie-rock, 'God Once Loved a Woman' is possibly SOTY

Chill indie/country, stunning harmonies
13Haley Heynderickx
I Need to Start a Garden

Lyrical goldmine, a step ahead of her peers creatively too
12Julia Holter

Challenging ambient album results in some truly haunting atmospheres
11Let's Eat Grandma
I'm All Ears

British indie-pop, contains moments way more epic than you'd expect
10Kacey Musgraves
Golden Hour

Country AOTY
9Wild Pink
Yolk in the Fur

The War on Drugs meets Tom Petty, immaculate flow to this whole thing.
8Shakey Graves
Can't Wake Up

Warm, creepy, and totally unique indie-rock.
7Antarctigo Vespucci
Love in the Time of E​-​Mail

Only the catchiest and most entertaining record, like ever...also hits the feels.
The Smoke of Atavistic Fires

Amazing metal/folk user project, has Opeth/Agalloch parallels
5Florence and the Machine
High as Hope

Sprawling and free flowing indie-pop with more experimentation
Nearer My God

Apocalyptic, coming of age moment for these emo-rockers
3The Republic of Wolves

Dark alt-rock that sounds like Brand New
2Ben Howard
Noonday Dream

Mesmerizing ambient folk that is so much better than any of his other LPs

Unhinged post-hardcore/indie-rock madness, even better than "Brother, Sister"
