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
  17. Tame Impala – Lonerism
  18. Tan Lines – Mixed Emotions
  19. The Maccabees – Given to the Wild
  20. Alt-J – An Awesome Wave

I’m back from a little trip around Spain. I went to see some Spanish cities that I’d never been to like Barcelona and Valencia. The weather was hot and sunny, the food (almost always) good, so where the drinks, the sightseeing, the beach, the pools and of course, the shopping.

Now it’s time to focus on getting back to work, I’m feeling somewhat refreshed, I hope I don’t get post-holiday depression!
