Top 10 Albums of 2015

10. Title Fight - Hyperview

[Soaked in reverb shoegaze revival that sounds nothing like their old stuff]

9. Metz - Metz II

[Ripping and roaring punk rock]

8. xRepentancex - The Sickness of Eden

[XVX in your face]

7. Strange Wilds - Subjective Concepts

[Nirvana worship, and God knows I did tons of that this year]

6. Cloakroom - Further Out

[It’s like a dream but you are headbanging the whole time]

5. A$AP Rocky - At.Long.Last.A$AP

[Dark house party, with this record blasting]

4. No Joy - More Faithful

[A warm cozy blanket of distortion that you never want to crawl out from underneath]

3. Turnstile - Nonstop Feeling

[I’m not even going to try to defend myself]

2. Kendrick Lamar - To Pimp A Butterfly

[Come on, this is the best album put out this year hands down]

______________

1. Chelsea Wolfe - Abyss
[Maybe because I listened to this album for a month straight in July in a house with no air conditioning until I wasn’t afraid of it anymore, but something about this record captured me and didn’t let go. My favorite release this year.]
