Favorite albums and singles of 2017
« on: December 03, 2017, 06:46:06 PM »
Well, the year's going into its final turn, and there's this matter to get to, so have at it.

My picks, in order:

Land Animal - Bent Knee
Okovi - Zola Jesus (best album of the year from a musical standpoint, but BK's album just hit me harder. Their thrill of musical discovery comes through the music, and they're going to have an incredible run.)
Future Politics - Austra
Emperor of Sand - Mastodon
Melodrama - Lorde

A month ago, Mastodon and Austra would've held each other's spots. Things change. In addition, this list isn't finished; those are just my top 5.

But here goes. In no particular order...

Hiss Spun - Chelsea Wolfe

Arca - Arca

Villains  - Queens of The Stone Age

Visions of a Life - Wolf Alice

Soft Sounds From Another Planet - Japanese Breakfast

Three Futures - Torres

Exile In The Outer Ring - EMA

In The Same Room - Julia Holter

That Torres album didn't do much for me, but Kaitlyn's was a revelation.

An absolute revelation.
