My most anticipated album of this year was Godspeed, and I really hate to say it but it didn't pack the punch that any of their other stuff did.
This is probably my most pleasant surprise of the year, and maybe too early to say but it's definitely my favorite of the year so far.
Still have yet to find something that tops this
couldn't find a link in the archive so i guess i'll pop this in here
Paul de Jong - IF
>folktronica, avant folk
AOTY, pic related is my #2
His Coachella set sounded really good, but this album was a huge letdown
ADBA and their brand new songs are way better
See this guy >>55527305
This and Sauna. Both are beautifully executed representations of my two favorite types of music.
I've listened to this like 7 times is so good. It was great during the cold winter months and is great during these hot spring days.
Hey, I got this as a promo album for the student radio station I work at. Was expecting shitty stoner rock, but ended up being fairly impressed. More people need to hear about it.
It's between this, I Love You, Honeybear, and Viet Cong.
dunno why people love to go completely overboard with their "opinions", I don't see a point to it.
It wasn't garbage it just wasn't the greatest album of all time ever made, which is what it was hyped up to be. there was no way it could have lived up to the hype.
Nice. that Big Blood was fucking awesome.
This. Really psyched for the new DIANA album coming out soon.
AOTY doesn't have to be perfect. Just better than all the other imperfect albums that year.
I'd say it's flawed in the sense that it isn't as much of an "easy listen"/radio friendly album as GKMC. But that's not much of a criticism.
These, plus: astrobrite - DELUXER
Punk AOTY by far. The only punk affiliated release I could see even touching this is the new Titus Andronicus. Excellent taste.
My other favorites so far.
I know its a weird shitposting meme at this point but I genuinely the Clarence Clarity album.
this is mine as of now but we all know that Jim O'Rourkes new album will be objective AOTY
Toundra - IV close second.
this and Kendricks album honorable mention to niggas on the moon
this and jenny death are the only real contenders so far. Heard some cool stuff that was posted ITT but none of them was really amazing.
I really don't think anything will top this for me, but 2015 has been amazing so far.
all contenders for me
I didn't like deserve that much on the first listen but now I fucking love it. Had a similar reaction to this one with the exception of Thousand Pounds which was awesome.
Also pic related is mine until the new titus andronicus becomes AOTD
I am really loving the new Rats on Rafts.
