Phew, here's my list:
1. Sharon Van Etten - "Seventeen"
So good cause everyone remembers being a teenager, right?
2. Angel Olsen - "Lark"
Solid use of strings, Angel.
3. FONTAINES D.C. - "Boys in the Better Land"
One of my favorite albums this year, hard not to air drum to this one.
4. Vampire Weekend - "Sympathy"
File this one in the 'Songs That Make You Move' category.
5. Bon Iver - "Hey, Ma"
Reminds me to call my mother (which is good).
6. Brittany Howard - "Stay High"
Feels good to feel good.
7. FKA twigs - "sad day"
Production is tops, plus that line 'I lie naked and pure with intentions to cleanse you and take you' ... whoa.
8. Mark Ronson, Angel Olsen - "True Blue"
This one got stuck in my head for a while.
9. Big Thief - "Not"
Two amazing albums, one year.
10. Lana Del Ray - "The Greatest"
Was never a huge Lana fan, but it appears she's captured something here.
11. Pond - "Hand Mouth Dancer"
Aussie psych rock ... 'kiss me I don't care, if you don't comb your hair.'
12. HAIM - "Summer Girl"
Nice song, wonder if Lou Reed would approve.
13. Weyes Blood - "Movies"
This thing escalates quite beautifully.
14. Jay Som - "Superbike"
East Bay, baby.
15. Big Thief - "Cattails"
Allowed to pick another Big Thief song cause it's a whole different album and everything.
16. Lucy Dacus - "Forever Half Mast"
Making sense of living in America with all its gluttony and glory.
17. Toro y Moi - "Freelance"
Walk on the water-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-r for me.
18. Michael Kiwanuka - "Rolling"
Rolling with the times, don't be late (get it?).
19. Deerhunter - "What Happens to People?"
Very good question indeed.
