Top Ten Albums of 2015
December 28, 2015
As I mentioned last week I couldn’t decide on just ten albums for the year so last week I gave you my Next Top Ten Albums of 2015 promising to deliver the rest this week. So without further ado I will now reveal my true Top Ten Albums of 2015 … again they’re in alphabetical order as opposed to trying to place them in numerical order:
One of the most listenable albums of the year from front to back … a midwest multi-instrumentalist
He’s a crazy dude, hell of a showman and his sophomore album draws you in with his intimate and direct lyrical style … Is it bad I still really want a Fleet Foxes reunion?
Another beautiful album from the former The War On Drugs frontman … it shows that the split between TWOD and Vile was MUTUALLY beneficial as both are making the best music of their careers
Bringing back that 60s soul sound, class and style through music and performance … a true gentleman
Another winner from the boys from Kentucky with a psychedelic sound and mix of fast and slow tunes … one of those albums that grows on you more and more as you listen to it
Gritty sounds, guitar-twanged riffs and a booming voice highlight this album … a solid first release and more to come down the road
He’s young, confident and cocky but thinks his new sound is the future of music … New genre, new culture, new voice, new favorite?
A thoughtful and heartfelt album that is more indie folk and less crazy instrumental interludes inspired by the death of his mother … arguably one of the most creative artists out there today
Another Aussie breakout album with a hypnotic, spacy sound that instantly catches you and drags you in … it’s also created one of the best remixed songs of the year thanks to haim (listen to it here)
A soulful, PSYCHEDELIC, sweet, poppy and rock-tinged romp of an album all in one … and all thanks to the lead singers experimentation with a polyamorous relationship
Happy listening and Happy New Year … can’t wait to start making my 2016 list soon!!
