It certainly doesn't help that my sister ONLY ever plays "Someone Like You" and "Rolling In The Deep" virtually on repeat when there is so much else to be discovered on the album.

Here's a top 25 of sorts.

1. Lykke Li - Wounded Rhymes
2. EMA - Past Life Martyred Saints
3. Cut Copy - Zonoscope
4. Tennis - Cape Dory
5. Destroyer - Kaputt
6. Austra - Feel it Break
7. Panda Bear - Tomboy
8. Man Man - Life Fantastic
9. Cults - Cults
10. James Blake - James Blake
11. Gang Gang Dance - Eye Contact
12. The Kills - Blood Pressures
13. Okkervil River - I Am Very Far
14. Grouper - A I A: Alien Observer
15. Childish Gambino - EP
16. Radiohead - The King of Limbs
17. Death Cab for Cutie - Codes & Keys
18. My Morning Jacket - Circuital
19. Smith Westerns - Dye it Blonde
20. Iron & Wine - Kiss Each Other Clean
21. Battles - Gloss Drop
22. Nicolas Jaar - Space is Only Noise
23. TV on the Radio - Nine Types of Light
24. Explosions in the Sky - Take Care Take Care Take Care
25. Holy Ghost! - Holy Ghost!

Incomplete: Bon Iver - Bon Iver, Bon Iver

Yeah, let's go with that. I'm as shocked at Death Cab's inclusion as anyone, but I listened to it again today and really, really like it. Unbelievable given how I've soured on them through the years.

Worst of the year is easily Worthlessness Blues. Just thinking about certain parts of that piece of shit makes me laugh.

I love that one more and more with each listen, so it's entirely possible it moves up the list as days go by. Don't fret.

Bon Iver's self-titled, Frank Ocean's mixtape, My Morning Jacket, Destroyer and Cults have been rockin' my world as of late.

I Am Very Far probably wouldn't as be as high on my list as you might expect, so don't fret. Like all Okkervil River albums though, they get considerably better for me the more acquainted I become.

I sorta forgot that Panda Bear album ever came out. I had a to listen to a couple songs to try to remember what it even sounded like. Ended up just listening to Comfy in Nautica and Take Pills instead.

I was never one of those people expecting a sequel to Person Pitch, so Tomboy wound up just great to these ears. I actually still have it in pretty heavy rotation. Same situation with Zonoscope, which has evolved from initially liking quite a bit to absolutely adoration. "Need You Now" is far and away my most listened to track of the year.

Even if that Frank Ocean character becomes the biggest star in the world, I think I'm going to think of Billy Ocean every time I see his name, and then immediately think of this beautiful video...

Eh, I just don't "get" all that Odd Future stuff. Maybe I'm finally old. But good on them for stirring shit with certified asshole Chris Brown.

Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi's Rome just might be my favorite thus far this year.

YouTube - ‪Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi present Rome - Season's Trees (ft. Norah Jones)‬‏

My Morning Jacket, TV on the Radio, Explosions in the Sky, Elbow and Death Cab on my perennial favorites making good list. James Blake, Destroyer, and Cults for making me start paying attention.

I've been extremely busy though, most new albums/artists I've listened to this year haven't gotten a second listen and as such my list is short. But as I'm back in a composing vein my headphones will be going dark for the time being, I don't like stuff I've listened to recently to seep into what I'm writing.


Oh and COBL has no soul or heart for just not getting Elbow, that's a damn shame.

My opinion on Elbow has not changed and is unlikely to do so.

I don't either.
 
Nor do I really get the feeling that their fans do...


In regards to Panda Bear, I'm not slighting it, I seriously somehow just lost track of it and forgot about amidst other releases. I actually was never a huge fan of Person Pitch either, I just really loved those two songs. I know I'm in the minority with this opinion, but Animal Collective and their side projects are very similar to Deerhunter and their side projects for me, in that very album has a few tracks I love, and the rest doesn't do a ton for me. Those few songs keep me coming back though.
