2016 albums you discovered too late for your AOTY lists


#1

Only very recently listened to Mitski’s Puberty 2. Really like it after only 3 listens. Reckon it would have ended up making may top 5 for the year if I’d heard it when it came out.


#2

I LIKE TRAINS - A Divorce before Marriage

Brilliant album, nice slice of post-rock (or whatever you wanna call it)

Also been enjoying Chance the Rappers Coloring Book


#3

Quite a few, annoyingly. The ones that I can remember off the top of my head are:

The Loscil album.

Breadwoman & Other Tales


#4

Rihanna - anti
Lambchop - flotus


#5

In all honesty I wouldn’t put Anti on the list, but Mitski would go on for sure. I didn’t give it a lot of time last year but keep going back to it now


#6

kraus- end tomorrow. outrageous album


#7

Childish Gambino. Ace funk.


#8

I only listened to the ILT album for the first time last weekend. Reminded me heavily of Explosions In The Sky in places.


#9

Moor Mother - Fetish Bones, seriously great


#10

Yeah the opening track and ‘X’ in articular wouldn’t be out of place on an EITS record (probably why I like it so much)


#11

They’ll never top Progress Reform though, such a great album, can’t believe it’s ten years old!

It got a 9/10 review on DiS at the time; http://drownedinsound.com/releases/7567/reviews/935205-


#12

Probably “If You See Me, Say Yes” by Flock of Dimes. Jenn Wasner is great.



#13

RTJ3 - but I can be forgiven for that given the timing

But I’m also REALLY enjoying Loscil, Huerco S and Shackleton which I only got round to after seeing them in various AOTY lists


#14

From Caplan To Belsize by Muncie Girls is pretty much all i’ve been listening to for the past fortnight


Emo revival thread for the new boards
#15

The Pop Group - Honeymoon on Mars, listen to it, it’s incredible


#16

Absolutely loads…

Pinegrove
Field Mouse
Whores
Mannequin Pussy
Crying
The Radio Dept.
Amber Arcades
Astronoid


#17

Have fallen hard for Pinegrove. Just lovely songwriting and the kid’s voice is perfect. High hopes for their future.


#18

I will.


#19

The Men - Devil Music

So much my kind of thing I’m annoyed I discovered it too late, trash-garage-noise-punk whatever you want to call it. Rules hard.


#20

Future Echoes by Pictish Trail.

Not sure it would have broken into my top 5 even if I’d heard it earlier, but still an enjoyable album.
