My Ten Favorite Records Of 2015
The music of 2015 delighted and surprised me to no end. The albums described below are all tied to memories from this rollercoaster of a year. My favorite artists (Joanna Newsom, The Mountain Goats) continued to innovate and evolve and I also discovered new musicians and performers that quickly found a special place in my heart (Hop Along, Natalia Lafourcade). Oh and this year, Carly Rae Jepsen reigned supreme. I will admit that I’m surprised at how little overlap there is between this list and the one at wrote at the halfway point of the year back in July. That’s only a good thing. Let’s count ‘em down and then share your favorite records of 2015 in the comments below!
