My Year-End Lists Of 2015

Posted on December 28, 2015 |


Their album was not.

19 years between their last release, 1996’s “Fantastic Planet”,
a masterpiece of a rock album and “The Heart Is A Monster”.

The musical chemistry between Ken Andrews, Greg Edwards
and Kellii Scott still very much potent after all these years.

I am in awe of these people. May they stay Failure(s) forever.

Beliefs brought it with their sophomore Shoegaze opus. After many listens,
the replay value gets higher and higher.

Sufjan gave me a case of the sadz. It’s one of the most beautiful
and raw
album i’ve heard in years.

Girl Band and Metz are fans of each others music and I am of theirs.
Clearly, we all have amazing tastes.
