Alright /mu/, what's your album of the year so far? Mine is pic related, but I've only listened to like twenty albums from this year so far. Post your AOTY and let others get recs.

>no homo, you faggot
Idk if anything actually good has come out yet this year
Mostly its just hipster pandering so far, nothing new per se
Like dan deacon, purity ring, bjork, and mount eerie all put out worse versions of albums that already exist so like, theres nothing that worthwhile yet
Waiting for gybe and thee oh sees
I know some people think Tobias is a forced artist, but one listen through that album and it's just straight up pleasant. Guy is tapped into that old charm of songwriters like Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, Paul Macca, maybe even some Billy Joel, Elton, etc. it's one of the most listenable records this year for sure. I think he dropped the ball a bit on the studio version of 'Without You'. In that Takeaway Show version it gave my chills, I thought it was going to be the easy SOTY and a go-to wedding anthem for years to come... but the production fell a touch short. Still pretty nice though.
Anyways, discard my opinion if you will, but I still like Viet Cong as AOTY so far.
>they don't have Pomegranates on their list
>his AOTYSF isn't Carrie & Lowell
What is WRONG with you??
I need to listen to these more.
Did not enjoy these.
It's just double tracked. But yeah, it's a bit of a stiff performance for such a gorgeous delicate song, the drumming is a bit forced, and the vocals should have been one track with maybe a touch of reverb. But from a songwriting perspective, it's still one of the top 10 songs of the year.
still gotta listen to the new leviathan
1. Bjork - Vulnicura
2. Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell
3. River City Extension - Deliverance
4. Courtney Barnett - Sometimes I Sit and Think, and Sometimes I Just Think
5. Nena - Oldschool
6. Viet Cong - S/T
7. The Pop Group - Citizen Zombie
8. Sleater-Kinney - No Cities to Love
9. Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear
10. Murder By Death - Big Dark Love
Need to listen to Sufjan's album again.
