There are so many artists and so many albums to listen to. And while there have been many great releases this year, here are three albums that have really sunk in with me. One of them has had more time to, while the two others have just been released and have already impressed me.
1) “I Love You, Honeybear” - Father John Misty
Awesome album with very passionate vocals and superb instrumentation. The Fleet Foxes drummer shows immense depth as a musician and has really sold me on his 2015 record. Thus far, it is my favorite album of the year.
2) “Currents” - Tame Impala (2015)
Yes, this one JUST came out, but after just one listen, Kevin Parker has amazed me. While I still prefer 2012’s “Lonerism” in their discography, the new album has a lot of new sounds, featuring more synths than in previous records. This one is very worth exploring.
3) “Magnifique” - Ratatat (2015)
Hey! This album also JUST came out, and like the Tame Impala record, it has really struck a chord with me. I’m a huge Ratatat fan, and after waiting years and years for a new album, this new record is certainly a solid addition to the duo’s discography. The track “Cream On Chrome” is a superb song and the album as a whole is one of high quality. Check it out.
