I'm bored, so this is my possible end of the year list. I've only heard Collapse Into Now once while driving and I really want to listen to Kate Bush's new album, so things may change come December. Lots of great albums this year, not an easy list to make.
1) David Lynch - Crazy Clown Time 2) Primus - Green Naugahyde 3) Man Man - Life Fantastic 4) They Might Be Giants - Join Us 5) Drive-By Truckers - Go Go Boots 6) Destroyer - Kaputt 7) Pepper Rabbit - Red Velvet Snowball 8) Tom Waits - Bad As Me 9) Wilco - The Whole Love 10) My Brightest Diamond - All Things Will Unwind 11) Atlas Sound - Parallax 12) Radiohead - King of Limbs 13) The Perfect Vessels - Name Our Own Stars 14) Moonface - Organ Music and Not Vibraphone Music Like I'd Hoped 15) Panda Bear - Tomboy 16) Boston Spaceships - Let It Beard 17) Feist - Metals 18) 13 and God - Own Your Ghost 19) St. Vincent - Strange Mercy 20) Glorie - Glorie 21) Colin Stetson - New History Of Warfare Vol. 2: Judges 22) Umlaut - Umlaut 23) Paul Simon - So Beautiful So What 24) If By Yes - Salt on Sea Glass 25) M83 - Hurry Up, We're Dreaming
I've been doing a final surge on all these albums as of late and I think the order will definitely be tweaked. Out of nowhere that Bon Iver album has really grown on me and might even be top 10. As for high grade production albums I think Beyonce's new one might kick M83 out of my list. Hopefully I can get a couple of listens in on both Cornershop's and Justice's new albums before putting the final list together.
