Top 19 You Haven't Heard This Year But Definitely Should; Or, I Mean Do What You Want, I'm Not The Boss Of You
1Animal Faces

energetic screamo from Canada, RIYL: Beau Navire, State Faults, Suffix
2Brighter Arrows
Division And What It Is To Abide

summery post-hardcore/emo with sweet quiet/loud dynamics, RIYL: Sunny Day Real Estate, Crash Of Rhinos
3Celestial Wolves

twinkly, soft post-rock from Belgium, they combine the twinkly elements of acts like Youth Pictures of Florence Henderson with the more straightforward tendencies of Explosions In The Sky
4Elite Gymnastics
Ruin 3

chillwave, electronic band with a knack for remixes, includes some by How To Dress Well and LOL Boys
5Elite Gymnastics
Ruin 4

and they have sweet album covers

chill hip-hop that you won't regret checking out, RIYL: Aids and/or Jash
Have Some Faith In Magic

subtle but sorta experimental mix of ambient and electronic from Glasgow, RIYL: Vessels, Field Music, Battles
8The Flaming Lips
The Flaming Lips And Heady Fwends

An unabashedly blunt slice of experimental rock that spans a variety of styles and incorporates artists like Justin Vernon, Ke$ha, Tame Impala, Lightning Bolt, Erykah Badu, and Chris Martin, among others.
9Hannibal Montana
Martial Arts In The Time Of Firearms

yes this band name actually exists, and it serves to personify this instrumental band that deals largely in math-infused post-rock that hits grooves upon grooves
10Julia Holter

creepy, off-kilter electronic/indie/ambient music from a keytarist that hits many emotional sparks from music that ranges from orchestral to minimalist

more quality tunes from the guys that brought you their brilliant self-titled album, but this is more meandering and weird; people have thrown around Kid A comparisons and sonically they do it justice, a little
12Lumber Lung

their latest -more female-fronted-screamo- shows a little improvement from their slightly-above-average self-titled record last year, RIYL: Calculator, Beau Navire, Matsuri, girls screaming
13Marissa Nadler
The Sister

harmonic and pretty indie-folk with tons of reverb and an almost shoegaze-y atmosphere, people have tagged her as "dream-folk" which is dumb but I guess it applies well
Children Of Desire

a post-punk band from Florida, their third album finds them in much poppier territory and they somehow manage not to get bogged down by the long track runtimes

varied dubstep record is a worthy followup to 2010's Triangulation
Pipe Dreams

dreamy music that captures the essence of shoegaze pretty well, though not quite as well as when the last letter of their name was a "L" instead of a "W" RIYL: Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine
17White Lung

energetic post-punk or maybe just regular punk band with a female vocalist and awesome songwriting that probably created the most must-hear album on this list
18 Wintersleep

remember this band? this doesn't disappoint like New Inheritors did, promise

amazingly atmospheric and chill band with more female vocals, the product of which is exceedingly pretty
