Based on my listening habits - local radio, spotify, etc. and the general scope and vibe of releases this year I'll have a hard time narrowing it down - plethora of a great albums but only a handful are def inclusions. Otherwise it's a long ass list of songs I've dug.

 

I can say my favorite album and band discovery is...

 

Khruangbin - Con Todo El Mundo

I'm kinda new to death grips but I got REALLY into it for a few weeks and started listening to a bunch of other death grips stuff because I used to think it sounded trash and somehow I changed my taste. Thought it was pretty good. Lot's of interesting production and cool beats and rock and roll sort of style mixing and production with cool use of samples and scratching and pretty weird lyrics.
