Bill Callahan-Dream River-Drag City One of the most beautiful albums I've heard in a long time. Shearwater-Fellow Travelers-Sub Pop on my top 10 list two years in a row, this time with a very unique album of covers. Suuns-Images Du Futur-Secretly Canadian the album neo-psych band Tame Impala was trying to make. Washed Out-Paracosm-Sub Pop a much more mature and lush album from the King of chillwave. Soviet Soviet-Fate-Felte classic post-punk via Italy. Midlake-Antiphon-ATO a modern classic rock masterpiece. Savages-Silence Yourself-Matador post-punk ala PIL & Siouxsie. Mazzy Star-Seasons of Your Day-Rhymes of an Hour their finest moment. King Khan & The Shrines-Idle No More-Merge soul-drenched garage freakout. Fuzz-Fuzz-In The Red Ty Segall's stoner rock project.
