I could never really get into this guy’s previous music or see what all the hype was about (guess I’ve just been overexposed on soft Indie falsetto guys).

Yea, I thought of pointing that out as well, since it wasn’t entirely clear in the post.

“What about albums that we don’t hear until after the year they were released? I’ll use Blood Orange’s “Cupid Deluxe” as an example.”
Happened to me with Courtney Barnett. That album will prob sound like spring 2014 for me for quite some time, even though it apparently came out last year.
