Best albums of 2015

These lists have started to appear. I like to look at these, although always several of the artists/albums they mention sound a bit made up to me (I'm never totally in touch with modern music). I do find the lists useful because I can look up recommended albums that may have slipped my attention over the year.

Of the albums mentioned, I really like the Grasscut, Haiku Salut and Ryley Walker albums. And of the albums I've bought this year that don't seem to be on the list, William D Drake's Revere Reach and the Robert Wyatt compilation Different Every Time are both really excellent. I need to seek out the Gwenno album and I've been listening to and much enjoying tracks from The Smoking Trees.

Any other great albums that have been missed out, anyone?

Re: Best albums of 2015

Only this list has the right #1 so far:
http://www.factmag.com/2015/12/09/the-50-best-albums-of-2015/

(also the most aesthetically pleasing online presentation of their list)

Not saying they've got anything else right though - it's a very idiosyncratic list, and I hadn't even heard of a lot of the records before.

We can add our own best of 2015 in this thread. I will have a think about it.

Re: Best albums of 2015

I'm not going to bother. I've got, like, four records, and they're probably totally predictable, and all from artists I've been interested in for years. R.I.P. music.

Re: Best albums of 2015

Well I certainly don't have a huge list, and as always, most of my interests are things that are older that I am discovering. But there are some.

Having spent probably 2 months this summer listening to nothing but Pond I will nominate Man It Feels Like Space Again. I cannot overstate how much I love this band.

Re: Best albums of 2015

I actually think I preferred KD4 of Luke's records this year, but both were knockouts for sure. Will Luke get any love from the industry in these lists? HAHA, he's like the Bernie Sanders of music. No love.
