    It’s tough to pick a top album this year. There have been some good releases but nothing has really stood out. My most listened to I think have been Snail Mail, Iceage, Denzel Curry and Tash Sultana.

    I’ve been listening to Courtney Barnett’s new album more and it’s been growing on me.

    Mac Miller - Swimming
    Joey Purp - Quarterthing
    Pusha T - Daytona
    Belly - Mumble Rap (technically late 2017).

    Really disappointed I didn't hear the Gost album until this week. That thing is a banger. Def in my top 10.

    Is this a list of your favorite albums of 2018 or did you pick these off a year end list you saw somewhere(Rolling Stone)?

    Don’t know how but Christine and the Queens completely flew under my radar.

    This song rules. Whole album is really good.

    It is good, don't know why I was initially reluctant to pick it up seeing how I love most everything from Uncle Tupelo, Wilco, Golden Smog and the Billy Bragg albums.

    I really feel like Beyondless by Iceage really was underrated this year. The horns and orchestra in this album really gives it a dramatic feel. I'm drawn to different sounding music and this album really hits that I think.

    Most of the year I found I was switching between Lush and Be The Cowboy the most. I do need to go back and give that Janelle Monae album a solid listen.

    1. Be The Cowboy - Mitski
    2. Lush - Snail Mail
    3. Beyondless - Iceage
    4. 7 - Beach House
    5. A Breukelen Story - Marco Polo and Masta Ace

    My Top 5:

    1. Collection One - SAINt JHN
    2. Tha Carter V - Lil Wayne
    3. Kids See Ghosts - Kids See Ghosts
    4. Beerbongs and Bentleys - Post Malone
    5. Testing - A$AP Rocky


    Some others that I enjoyed, Oxnard(Anderson. Paak), NOIR(Smino), DROGAS WAVE(Lupe Fiasco)



    I saw a massive transformation in my musical taste this year. From almost exclusively indie rock or indie folk to now almost exclusively Hip-Hop and rap.
