Mostly without commentary.
10. Lovers Know, The Mynabirds
Just. So. Solid.
9. Beautiful Monster, Sky-Pony
It’s so morbid and cabaret and meta and lady.
8. Delirium, Ellie Goulding
I’m still waiting for this album to entirely grow on me, but it’s really solid and fun and yes.
7. Froot, Marina and the Diamonds
She just has the coolest sometimes-weird voice and their stuff is such dark fun.
6. Midnight, Grace Potter
The best club-rock-pop fun I’ve had in a while.
5. How Does It Feel?, MS MR
I can’t even begin to explain how many things I feel listening to this.
4. Badlands, Halsey
Or this. This album is just so damn good.
3. What a Terrible World, What a Beautiful World, The Decemberists
Such storytelling such grace.
2. After It All, Delta Rae
What sweet glorious perfection. But…
1. Every Open Eye, CHVRCHES
Yes, it did end up winning, if only for the weeks that I’ve driven around playing it on repeat/shuffle madly belting along.
