So that time of the year has come again, time to list my favorite records of the year! When I made this list, I found myself struggling to think of heavy albums I loved, plenty I liked a lot, but very few I loved. There was no shortage of great indie and shoegaze records this year though. This includes the New Pianos Become the Teeth record Keep You, my album of the year.
1. Pianos Become the Teeth- Keep you
2. Raveonettes- Pe’ahi
3. Nothing- Guilty of Everything
4. Merchandise- After the End
6. Future Islands- Singles
7. Run the Jewels- I and II

10. Xerxes- Collision Blonde
Crimson Wave- say/calling you
Miserable/Grey Zine- Split
J Mascis- Fade Into You
