2015.5



We're half way through another year and 2015 has been pretty great for new music. My favorites releases of the year (so-far) below:



There seem to have been a lot of high impact records in the first half of 2015. Whether you're into the full on rock of Sleater-Kinney, Speedy Ortiz, or Hop Along, the personal vulnerability of Bjork and Sufjan Stevens, the revolutionary rap of Kendrick Lamar, the trippy psychedelics of Unknown Mortal Orchestra and Panda Bear, or the brain busting noise of Prurient and Lightning Bolt, you're due to find something that peaks your interests.
