2015 Music Picks

2015-Graphic

It’s that time of the year when people post their top albums for 2015. I started thinking about 2015 and what might be on my list.

I’ve also been reading 2015 lists from other sites. I love the list that KCRW puts out since they also include a top 10 from each DJ. I always spend a little time researching their picks and listening to some of their picks that are new to me.

2015 was kind of a weird music year for me. I feel like 2014 had more releases that spoke to me. I looked forward to releases this year from Death Cab for Cutie, Foals, Ghostface Killah, Cayucas (to name a few) but I didn’t find myself going back to listen to their new releases that often.

I’ve settled on 10 albums that I found myself returning to time and time again. A few of these releases have been profiled on my blog during the year. Many on the list are oddballs but I’ve sure enjoyed them this year. I hope you discover something new to your ears.
