This is the first time I listen to Ava Luna, and that “Billz” was really, really, great.
This album elevated my expectations about music in 2015 a lot. I still believe Person Pitch is his best, but Grim Reaper gets me excited everytime I listen to it.
AOTY: Lost in the Dream
SOTY: Under the Pressure
And The @MCTREEG EP? That was one of my favourite rap releases this year.
1. Ultimate Bitch
2. Basedwolrd Paradise
3. Hoop Life
So Azealia Banks with that super hip hop album is #22, above Shabazz Palaces, and Young Fathers are not even mentioned….
A lot better!
Nehhh. The album of the week is Black Messiah. I really like Charli, but this is mehhh. We deserve more “Nuclear Seasons” and “Superlove” , and less “Boom Clap” and “Break the Rules”.
Even The Pinkprint, which I was expecting to suck, is a lot better. That Nicki album is fuil of surprises.
Since the ,moment it came out:
The War on Drugs – Lost in the Dream!!!!!!!!
I like this year a lot. And I found it amazing since I started listenning Lost in A Dream with “Under the Pressure”. From that moment (playing music in my MP3, I was waiting an elevator on the 14th floor, and that took like 15 minutes because the other one was broke. Yeah, I listenned that song twice), I knew this War on Drugs album was simply the best of 2014, and didn’t dissapoint me track after track, play after play.
The list is fine, not everything is fine, but it has some good surprises (Sharon Van Etten, Strand of Oaks, Angel Olsen) and a great top 3. I was expecting a little more love to this albums:
- Mac DeMarco – Salad Days,
- Ben Frost – A U R O R A,
- Andy Stott – Faith in Strangers
- Shabazz Palaces – Lese Majesty
- DJ Quik – Midnight Life
- Pharmakon – Bestial Burden
- Pallbearer – Foundations of Burden
- DJ Dodger Stadium – Friend of Mine
