DescriptionDescription TrailerTrailer CommentsComments (0)

1.) Grimes – “Art Angels”

No surprise here. There is no word to describe Grimes’ futuristic pop. It’s elevating and un-pretentious.

2.) Kendrick Lamar – “To Pimp a Butterfly

Redefining a genre and style in one album. This is a classic.

3.) Shamir – “Ratchet”

A queer voice with the chops of a seasoned vet. Party music has a new king/queen.

4.) My Morning Jacket – “Compound Fracture”

More lush, trippy soundscapes from the gods of psychedelic rock.

5.) Robyn & La Bagatelle Magique – “Love is Free”

Heartbreaking old fashioned 90′s house with a Robyn twist.

6.) BORNS – “Dopamine”

Glam rock for the “Millennials.”

7.) Blur – “Magic Whip”

Good old fashioned stoner brit-pop.

8.) Miguel – “Wildheart”

This will have to do until the new Frank Ocean comes out.

9.) Disclosure – “Caracal”

The masters of modern dance music do it again, with more friends.

10.) Tame Impala – “Currents”

Heady epic rock music for the person who loves a good mind fuck.

11.) Roison Murphy – “Evil Eyes”

A progressive sound with a clear vision.

12.) Hot Chip – “Why Make Sense”

Electro dance madness.

13.) Mark Ronson – “Uptown Special”

Mark Ronson makes fun music, period.

14.) The Chemical Brothers – “Born in Echoes”

A surprise set of eclectic dance tracks.

15.) Florence & the Machine – “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful”

Florence is a powerhouse. Seeing her perform these songs live in concert on their tour this fall was a revelation.

16.) The Weeknd – “Beauty Behind the Madness”

Finally, the real deal.

17.) Galantis – “In My Head”

Can we play “Peanut Butter Jelly” on a loop?

18.) Major Lazer – “Peace is the Mission”

An out of this world mix of hip-hop and techno.

19.) Brandon Flowers – “The Desired Effect”/strong>

Who would have thought? This album is catchy is hell.

20.) Giorgio Moroder – “From Here to Eternity…and Back”

He is a genius.

If you like ballads and comfort food, you love this album.

22.) Little Boots – “Working Girl”

Kylie on drugs.

23.) Madonna – “Rebel Heart”

Better than her last two.

24.) NERVO – “Collateral”

Get to know these chicks!

25.) Thundercat – “The Beyond / Where the Giants Roam”

Funk, soul, trip-hop, electronic, rock. So much good.
