Top Ten Albums of 2016

Honorable Mention: Summertime 06 by Vince Staples. The only reason this record is an honorable mention is because it didn’t hit wax until the day before my list last year was made.

Top Ten Albums of 2015 [Judy Mills' Picks]

10) Title Fight Hyperview–not the hardcore emo band you remember.  This record shows a more shoegaze version of the band that I keep going back to. 9) Joanna Newsom Divers–Will not convince you if you are not a Joanna fan.  But if you are, you’ll love “Divers” for being more concise but equally ethereal. 8) Low Ones and […]

Top Ten Albums of 2015 [Brian Clifton's Picks]

Last week, I counted down my favorite local releases. This week, I’m moving on to my top ten albums of 2015. 10. Art Angels by Grimes.
