Top 20 Countdown
Courtney Marie Andrews - May Your Kindness Remain
The Nude Party - The Nude Party
Erika Wennerstrom - Sweet Unknown
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.
My top 5 for the year:
5. Beach House - 7
4. Car Seat Headrest - Twin Fantasy
3. Mitski - Be the Cowboy
2. Amen Dunes - Freedom
1. Snail Mail - Lush
I pretty much exclusively listen to rap. Here is my top 5, according to Last.fm.
Eminem - Kamikaze
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.
A bunch of year end lists here:
2018 Music Year End Lists - Album of The Year
Think I have my top 8:
1. Beach House - 7
2. La Luz - Floating Features
3. Boygenius - Boygenius EP
4. Melody's Echo Chamber - Bon Voyage
5. Courtney Barnett - Tell Me How You Really Feel
6. Wooden Shjips - V
7. Spiritualized - And Nothing Hurt
8. Khruangbin - Con Todo El Mundo
Alright guys, i did a poor job this year. Just been elsewhere in my life.
What do i NEED to hear? This is my list so far for the year:
5. Arctic Monkeys- Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino
4. Gorillaz- The Now Now
3. Rhye- Blood
2. MGMT- Little Dark Age
1. Unknown Mortal Orchestra- Sex and Food
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)?
My top 5
Soccer Mommy- Clean
Rufus Du Sol- Solace
Snail Mail- Lush
Kacey Musgraves- Golden hour
Not in order. I like them all equally
Don’t know how but Christine and the Queens completely flew under my radar.
This song rules. Whole album is really good.
A couple late additions to my favorites of '18
Jeff Tweedy -Warm
Glorietta - s/t
Wait, Smashing Pumpkin released an album this year, November 16th to be precise?? Any good?
Shiny and Oh So Bright Vol. 1/ LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.
That's the entire name of the album by the way.
Tweedy's solo album is absolutely amazing, can't stop listening !
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.
1. Aphex Twin - Collapse EP
2. Pusha T - DAYTONA
3. MGMT - Little Dark Age
4. JPEGMAFIA - Veteran
5. Earl Sweatshirt - Some Rap Songs
My top 5:
5. 7 / Simulation Theory
3. Masters Of The Sun
2. Kids See Ghost
There have been better years for music, imo.
Anyway, my top 10:
1. Idles - Joy as an Act of Resistance
2. Snail Mail - Lush
3. Beach House - 7
4. Interpol - Marauder
5. Amen Dunes - Freedom
6. Black Rebel Motorcycle Club - Wrong Creatures
7. Rhye - Blood
8. Death Cab for Cutie - Thank You for Today
9. Thrice - Palms
10. Metric - Art of Doubt
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.
Good call, chief.
