🔝 Favourite albums of 2018 so far?


#81

Whilst I’d largely keep this list relatively similar to the way it is, I suspect than Jean Grae x Quelle Chris is going to shoot waaaaay up, Soccer Mommy is going to feature quite highly, and Janelle Monae might creep into the lower rankings if I can get over some of the atrocious lyrics and the couple of dud tracks on it


#82

The Breeders - All Nerve
Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy
Hookworms - Microshift
The Men - Drift
Young Fathers - Cocoa Sugar
Rival Consoles - Persona
Yo La Tengo - There’s a Riot Going On
Black Milk - FEVER
No Age - Snares Like a Haircut
Nils Frahm - All Melody

Excited for Anderson .Paak, DJ Koze, Parquet Courts, Kanye (I think?), Kamasi Washington

I’m really enjoying the ‘Cerebral Hemispheres’ album by Mr. Fingers. It’s a real headphones record. Has a bit of everything thrown in there! The electro tracks towards the end are really great.

Prettiest Eyes - Pools
John Johanna - I’ll Be Ready When The Great Day Comes
