I now don’t think my top 5 is really going to deviate too much from what I have no so here goes nothing.

It’s been a stellar year for me I have to say

  1. Converge - The Dusk In Us
  2. Iglooghost - Neo Wax Bloom
  3. Protomartyr - Relatives In Descent
  4. Susanne Sundfor - Music for People In Trouble
  5. Japanese Breakfast - Soft Sounds From Another Planet

#45
  1. Conor Oberst - Salutations
  2. Cigarettes After Sex - Cigarettes After Sex
  3. Father Johny Misty - Pure Comedy
  4. EMA - Exile In The Outer Ring
  5. Dhani Harrison - In///Parallel

#46
  1. A Deeper Understanding
  2. Capacity - Big Thief
  3. Take Me Apart - Kelela
  4. American Dream - LCD Soundsystem
  5. New Energy - Four Tet

Shout outs to Kendrick, Kelly lee Owens, the national, migos, call super, big krit and mount eerie (though it feels a bit silly including it here). Didn’t get on with arca but loved his production on other stuff this year. The kelela album might go to the top if it stays in my CD player the way it has been. Properly futuristic and well sexy.

Edit: elbow and lorde were both fucking aces

Tyler’s album was good, I should dig it out again
