Sun Kil Moon Tiny Cities
Cult Leader A Patient Man
The band evolves beautifully on this album. The heavy songs hit harder, Lucero sounds even more versatile and commanding as a vocalist, and the ballads are much more fleshed out and well-placed on the album. Cult Leader expand their horizons without losing their seething nihilism and self-loathing. Might be a 4.5 in time, honestly.
Sun Kil Moon This Is My Dinner
This is My Dinner is probably Mark's most enjoyable album in quite some time. His ramblings keep the cringes to a minimum, and are (for the most part) focused on a theme, that being the countries he hit up on the European tour this album was written on. He's a bit more confrontational than he was on the last record this year, but it comes across as more harmless.

Low Double Negative
Double Negative may not be revolutionary in the grand scheme of things, but in Low's discography it's a notable revelation. Low has always been built around the gorgeous, intertwining harmonies of Alan Sparhawk and Mimi Parker, the exact thing this album wants to fuck with as much as possible. Their vocals are drowned out, distorted and pitch shifted often throughout the album. But instead of being a distraction, it adds exponentially to the cold, distant feel of the album.

But Double Negative doesn't lean on that vibe to see it through, and even tries to fight it with some humanity and warmth in a couple of songs (Always Tryi
Their weakest album for sure but CHVRCHES haven't lost it just yet. They probably should have trimmed this thing down though. Love 'em, but 50 minutes of CHVRCHES is pushing it a bit.
