So finally, here is my list of "must-hear" albums from this year. I'm a little late to the scene but hopefully you guys aren't exhausted of these yet. I'll keep it easy on the reading part.
I wasn't sure what to call this list, but I think that "best of" and "favorite" are overused since any one person can only listen to a tiny portion of all the albums that came out this year, and one person's favorites won't exactly match another's. So I tried to pick some of my favorite albums that are a bit obscure but also that I think a large number of people can appreciate. My hope is that you'll stick to some of these albums, because I think they all have great replay value too.
So here goes. Click the cover art to purchase.
Bluskreen - Mockup
Stream it here
Telefon Tel Aviv - Immolate Yourself
Flevans - 27 Devils
Stream it at last.fm
And even though this album's not out yet,
Beach House - Teen Dream
One final note... I spent a substantial amount of time putting this ten album list together (probably too much), so don't expect a top songs list from me... well, not any time soon at least. Making this list was crushing my holiday spirit lol but it had to be done. On the plus side I think it turned out pretty well, so it was worth it I guess. Have a Merry Christmas!
