    I always feel self-conscious about music lists. There’s so much released every year and I never feel as if I’ve listened to enough. And you need to take time with albums to truly form an opinion.

    1. Fetch the Bolt Cutters- Fiona Apple
    2. Set My Heart On Fire Immediately- Perfume Genius
    3. Saint Cloud- Waxahatchee
    4. Descendants of Cain- Ka
    5. It Is What It Is- Thunder Cat
    6. Heaven To A Tortured Mind- Yves Tumor
    7. Ungodly Hour- Chloe and Halle
    8. Run the Jewels 4- Run the Jewels
    9. It Was Good Until It Wasn’t- Kelanie
    10. Grae- Moses Sumney

    Manic-Halsey/The New Abnomal-The Strokes
