These days I hate this time of the year and these lists because I'm reminded of how I'm not dedicating enough time for new releases anymore.. I get too hung up on records, and can play the same thing nonstop for longer than a year . I feel like if something makes the list it's only because it's bearable for cooking and while working on a paper . Some years ago most stuff I listened to wasn't that anythingelse-friendly, almost 3 am stuff only.. still not 100% comfortable with the change.

Hopefully once I get a break I'll be able to dive comfortably into Patti's new album, and Cat Power's!, Santigold's new stuff sounded pretty good live and I loved the first single.. ah.


Confess by Twin Shadow
Tempest by Bob Dylan
Visions by Grimes
Tramp by Sharon Van Etten
Nootropics by Lower Dens
Unapologetic by Rihanna
Mr Impossible by Black Dice
Victory by Child Actor
Coexist by The XX *although I can't listen to this from start to finish. It gets a little too marriage crisis sometimes.
Mondo by Electric Guest *blah if the album's the first impression but delicious live, pretty much summed up the summer for me..

Ah! Every December, I look back and start freaking out about what music I might have missed, or didn't pay enough attention too. From what was release this year that, had me hitting repeat. In absolutely no particular order...so hard to narrow this down:

Grimes - Visions
Sharon van Etten - Tramp
Alt + J - An Awesome Wave
Bat for Lashes - The Haunted Man
Frank Ocean - Channel Orange
Fiona Apple - The Idler Wheel...
Purity Ring - Shrines
Haleek Maul - Oxyconteen
Django Django - Django Django

Honorable mentions (because I'll always find a way to get out of committing to a list): Electric Guest - EP (yes MP!), Beach House - Bloom, XXYYXX - XXYYXX, Kendrick Lamar - good kid m.A.A.D city, Jessie Ware - Devotion, oh and that new Katy B - Danger EP.

Ah, glad to see it on your list! I think I only left it out because there's a point where I just want it to stop (like the XX record, but the moment of intolerance comes faster *old*).

LB, I was 99% sure you'd add some Chris55ybaby here!

^Ah, Japandroids! Very good choice ScarlettLover, plus you're right, it's a great way to see what one might have missed this year.

I've gone days with that on repeat all the way through, ha! Saltkin was on repeat-one for way too long. My neighbors might hate me, but at least they listen to good music too.
