🔝 Favourite albums of 2018 so far?


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


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


Oh that’s right up my street. Album purchased. Thankee sai.


Top 5 are probably:

  1. YLT
  2. Daniel Avery
  3. Against All Logic
  4. Hookworms
  5. Ezra Furman

Pretty good year so far!

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.


Sleep - The Sciences


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


Another new Typhoon fan here, been listening to the album non stop for the last few days, brilliant. They’re one of those bands that constantly remind me of other bands I love without ever sounding derivative.


Hot Snakes
Amen Dunes
Soccer Mommy
