- It's December, so… let's have your albums and songs of the year
I’m not going to make you pick one, I know I can’t.
My picks would be:
Gameface – Now Is What Matters Now. Pop punk originators return after nearly two decade, triumph ensues.
Run The Jewels – Run The Jewels 2. Delicious, grimy, hook-laden indie rap.
Mastodon – Once Around The Sun – H.E.A.V.Y.
Todd Terje – It’s album time. Bonkers, album title of the year.
That list could have been twice as long, it’s been a good year.
Songs of the year
Prince – Pletzelbodylogic
Future Islands – Seasons (Waiting on You)
Lykke Li – No Rest For The Wicked
La Roux – Uptight Downtown
… and many many more.

I sense a last second Xmas pressie buying panic 😉
Royal Blood came very close to getting in on my list, I know I’ll get Sonic Highways for Xmas so haven’t heard it yet but enjoyed all of the songs on the documentary series so far.Posted 4 years agobristolbikerMember

This is drifting slightly off topic but I have to say I have really enjoyed the Sonic Highways docs and have actively sought the middle set out on Iplayer. Yes, it does stray into being a teeny bit pretentious in places but, on the whole, God bless Dave Grohl for making it!Posted 4 years agoversesSubscriber
Most listened would be;
The Wytches – Annabel Dream Reader
Die Antwoord – Donker Mag
Saw their set at Leeds Festival, supremely mental! Hadn’t heard of them before.

buck53 – was not expecting to see someone pick RTJ in this thread!
I was expecting the usual navel gazing, bearded indie guff that the Audi drivers like
I blast it in my Fiat Panda, keep it OG. 😉
Did you spot this thread the other day?
Some good stuff in there.Posted 4 years agoistoMember
Mine would be:
Caribou – Our Love – all songs except Second Chance which does my head in
Spoon – They Want My Soul – every song is really good….very accessible album
The Phantom Band – Strange Friend – takes a few listens but I found it really rewarding after a few initial WTF moments
Parquet Courts – Bodies – quirky and awesome
Shellac – Dude Incredible – for producing another album that makes me want to take a shower after listening to it
Fugazi – First demo – its only just out but I have been listening to it non-stop for the last week…..for me an insight into an amazing band
I am still listening to various hip-hop albums recommended to me by the kind residents of STW. So far my favourite released this year would be JJ Dooms remix album Bookhead.Posted 4 years agochvckMemberDezB wrote:

Die Antwoord – Donker Mag
Really? I’ve liked their previous stuff, but thought Donker Mag was crap!
To be fair there are a couple of really crap tracks on it but I like most of them. It’s also one of the only new albums I’ve listened to this year so my pool of choice is shallow 😛Posted 4 years agoschrickvr6Member
Syro starts well but after track four takes a nose dive.
OOBE – Digitalisea
Andy Stott – Faith in Strangers
Thom Yorke – Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes
Teebs – Estara
Bear in Heaven – Time Is Over One Day Old

I am veering towards the Solstafir at the moment:
