compare to gkmc. all i know is it's jazzy and more or less brilliant Macintosh Plus Floral Shoppeit's raining pixels outside. and my god is it glorious. This is the zenith of vaporwave, its opus, the stunning and mind-bending and surreal and enchanting world of plunderphonics saturated in dynamic textural beauty. Floral Shoppe is nature and technology colliding in a pool of atoms. Modest Mouse The Moon & AntarcticaThe Men Leave Homethis is one of the best albums of this decade. Unwound Leaves Turn Inside You4.5 superbBOBBY BOBBYDismember Like an Ever Flowing StreamJenny Hval VisceraLocal Natives Hummingbirdone of the great indie albums of this lost time Nmesh Dream Sequinsdo you understand it's all in your head? Oceansize Self Preserved While The Bodies Float Upwill go down as one of the best of this decade. i have such a personal attachment to this record that my heart strings are on fire just playing "Oscar Acceptance Speech" over in my head. Such brilliant pain here.Preoccupations Viet CongSeriously Viet Cong? why couldn't you have just dropped this thing before January and made my aoty selection a no-brainer? dammitRicky Eat Acid Three Love Songsso this is the best album of the year. all context, pace, and flow. here's to Autumn! Stateless MatildaA soulful, loungey masterpeice, a monumental statement on today. Astounding. The National High VioletTim Hecker Ravedeath, 19724.0 excellentA City Safe From Sea Throw Me Through WallsAlgiers AlgiersA draining, emotionally charged record that can be tiring and enlightening simultaneously. this shit is made of syrup and density. One of the best albums of the year.Angel Olsen Burn Your Fire for No Witnessi hear some roy orbison in here which is never, ever a bad thing. Angel Olsen's Jagjaguwar debut is better the more depressed i get, and more soothing the better i feel.Ava Luna Infinite Housereally cool sounds and shit Baths CeruleanBaton Rouge TotemDevics My Beautiful Sinking ShipHalf Moon Run Dark EyesAll mood and atmosphere. Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. Iceage Plowing into the Field of Lovehey this is like really interesting and stuff Laura Stevenson Sit ResistMarilyn Manson The Pale Emperorsome of this is contrived, but jesus antichrist a lot of this kicks ass Oneohtrix Point Never R Plus SevenPolyenso One Big Particular LoopA rain shower that goes on for too long, but boy does it make for some sweet ambiance. What a great change for these used-to-be-faux-rockers.Shabazz Palaces Black UpSun Kil Moon Benjidowner giving something a 1 pretty much puts a guarantee on staying the fuck away, yet i can't help but find this to be the most beautiful album of the young year.Warpaint The FoolWeird Al Yankovic Mandatory Funthis is actually pretty damn good White Lung Deep Fantasythis band is bad fucking ass White Lung SorryWild Beasts Smother3.5 greatAstronauts Hollow PondsDeftones Diamond EyesFinch Back to OblivionLow Roar 0this is rather beautiful, though I just don't know if I can see myself listening to this on the reg. A deceptively huge, not always engaging, breezy record.Tennis Ritual In RepeatTitle Fight Floral Green3.0 goodTitle Fight Hyperviewthe opener is one of the best songs of the year and....that's about it i guess 2.5 averageDeafheaven Sunbathercalm down ppl it's not a 5 4.5/5 Lantlos Melting Sunand neige sounds like an angel as always Mac DeMarco Salad Days"so in a sense, the pleasantness is a vain assurance that everything is okay and youre okay and your friends are okay everythings good, its shit like romanticizing your friends right away because nostalgia is what you cling to even in present situations, perhaps? i imagine people love the idea of mac demarco playing at a barbeque with your friends and youre havin a grand ol time. sure, fun. but, like, aren't there greater things to aspire to?"
