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
Wait a second - St Vincent isn’t on this list either… mmm clearly this is not a very good method…
oh god, START THE THREAD AGAIN LADS

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.
