1. Julia Holter - Have You In My Wilderness (15)
2. Lady Lamb The Beekeeper - After
3. Waxahatchee - Ivy Tripp (15)
4. Tame Impala - Currents (15)
5. Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear (15)
6. Sharon Van Etten - I Don't Want To Let You Down EP
7. Hop Along - Painted Shut
8. Holly Herndon - Platform
9. Jlin - Dark Energy


That was everything I gave more than an 80/100 to on AlbumOfTheYear.org, virtually all of them fronted by women...it hardly scratches the surface of what I loved this year including a lot of tape label stuff.


I'm also giving points to these that have already received votes:

Royal Headache - High (15)
Sufjan Stevens - Carrie & Lowell (10)

That brings me to 85 points. I'm going to give 15 points to that Purity Ring album, Another Eternity, because I know people around here will vote for it and it will make our final list unique. Plus, it was way underrated.

I just noticed that 10 out of my top 15 albums have women as lead singers. Pretty happy about that.

I'd like to make a list, iyup. Can we leave this open until the end of the weekend to give me time to do some focused listening?

The thread is usually open until well into January. I imagine it will be the same here.

Im gonna say some that I liked (w/out particular order)

A Heart Is A Monster — Failure
Tame Impala — Current (not much listen I gave, but i can see it's fun album)
Baroness — Purple (come on, this one's gonna be huge)
Torche — Restarter
Fuzz — II
Wilco — Star Wars (not the best, but i liked it)
Carly Rae Jepsen — Emotion (there, I said it)
To Pimp A Butterfly (not my cup of tea, but I understand why people think it's good)

Sorry, my taste isn't really congruent to you guys'

I'm probably largely throwing away votes, but whatevs.

1. Tame Impala: Currents - 15
2. Mute Math: Vitals - 14
3. Lord Huron: Strange Trails - 13
4. Penguin Prison: Lost In New York - 12
5. Smallpools: Lovetap! - 11
6. The Wombats: Glitterbug - 10
7. El Vy: Return To The Moon - 9
8. Strange Names: Use Your Time Wisely - 8
9. Avid Dancer: 1st Bath - 8

Although the release I'm most looking forward to is this Friday, my band Moon Dwarfs is releasing an EP called Moor and Mountain. Yes, it's a Christmas EP. I'm in final post-production now and trying to avoid brickwall impulse.

I was about to list MuteMath but I kinda hesitated as i don't have too much experiment with that album.

Sufjan has this in the bag. Only reason I didn't give him more points.

Yeah I've considered not giving C&L any points to make sure Kendrick wins but that would just be lame, and Sufjan would probably still win.

Am I the only person who's going to even mention HEALTH in their year end list? Sad.

Hadn't we discussed in the past not allowing entries where they had less than 15 albums?
