15 for 2015
This year was different to last; there was no particular album that consumed me from start to end. Tame Impala’s ‘Currents’ came close - with every listen each song took on new meaning, it was a real 'grower’. Yet I still kept finding myself returning to one song, “The Less I Know The Better”.
It was the same with Majical Cloudz - constantly on repeat was “Downtown”. Likewise with Viet Cong, the twists and turns of “Silhouettes” became all consuming, rather than the entire album itself.
Overall, there were a lot of great albums and a lot of incredible songs. Whatever way you like to consume your music, these were the 15 albums we believe you need to listen to. In no particular order:
FUZZ - II
U.S. GIRLS - Half Free
FLOATING POINTS - Elaenia
DRENGE - Undertow
VIET CONG - Viet Cong
UNKNOWN MORTAL ORCHESTRA - Multi-Love
GIRL BAND - Holding Hands With Jamie
LA PRIEST - Inji
TAME IMPALA - Currents
