In my defence I use iTunes on lots of PCs including my work PC and this is office friendly but by far their worst album. I usually agonise over these lists and this year I just thought fuck it go with most plays so top 5 count :slight_smile:


#83

Wait a second - St Vincent isn’t on this list either… mmm clearly this is not a very good method…

#98

Actually really liking Flower Boy and the Sampha album… I hate making lists


#99

Barely seen a mention of Alex G, love that album.


#100
  1. LCD Soundsystem - American Dream
  2. Kendrick Lamar - Damn.
  3. Arca - Arca
  4. Sheer Mag - Need To Feel Your Love
  5. Rostam - Half-Light

Those are the ones I have listened to the most honourable mentions for Mount Eerie (Which I listened to twice then couldn’t bear to listen to again cause it was so heartbreaking), Thundercat, King Krule, Julie Byrne, Syd, Vince Staples. It would probably be harder to make a top 10 this year there were a lot of good records just not as many that I listened to repeatedly like Jay Som, Waxahatchee, Big Thief etc.
