Like every end of the year in the past ten years or so, I took some time to compile my list of favourite albums.
This year I decided to make an ordered list of 20 noteworthy records. The Dirty Projectors take the throne since I think that album really stands out from the rest.

  1. Dirty Projectors – Swing Lo Magellan
  2. Twin Shadow – Confess
  3. Hot Chip – In Out Heads
  4. Beach House – Bloom
  5. Frank Ocean – Channel Orange
  6. Alabama Shakes – Boys & Girls
  7. Bobby Womack – Braves Man in the Universe
  8. Japandroids – Celebration Rock
  9. The Walkmen – Heaven
  10. Grizzly Bear – Shields
  11. Tennis – Young and Old
  12. Father John Misty – Fear Fun
  13. The Shins – Port of Morrow
  14. Fanfarlo – Rooms Filled With Light
  15. WhoMadeWho – Brighter
  16. David Byrne & St. Vincent – Love This Giant
