The Best Albums of 2015 So Far

Six months in, 2015 is shaping up to be another fantastic year for new music. I’ll refrain from saying that it was harder to pick my favorite releases this year than it has been previously since I’m pretty sure I said the same thing last year and the year before. Redundancy is the enemy of every writer, after all. That said, it was definitely a challenge to narrow so many great albums to a meager ten. I’m happy to finally share my favorites with all of you. Here they are. I hope you find something new to enjoy.

  1. Hiatus Kaiyote, “Choose Your Weapon”
  2. Kendrick Lamar, “To Pimp a Butterfly”
  3. Failure, “The Heart is a Monster”
  4. The Tallest Man on Earth, “Dark Bird is Home”
  5. Anekdoten, “Until All the Ghosts are Gone”
  6. Godspeed You! Black Emperor, “Asunder, Sweet and Other Distress”
  7. Vennart, “The Demon Joke”
  8. Father John Misty, “I Love You, Honeybear”
  9. Bjork, “Vulnicura”
  10. Steven Wilson, “Hand. Cannot. Erase.”
