Getting around to this a bit late, but it's a short list this year. With the downfall of music blogs and my impatience with Spotify ads, it's gotten a lot harder for me to keep up.
Two huge standouts:
James Blake "Retrograde"
Vampire Weekend "Unbelievers"
Close runner-up from that album: "Ya Hey" - but not as accessible.
Laura Mvula "That's Alright" - bonus for being from Birmingham!
It gets weirder after this point...
Petra Glynt "Sour Paradise"
Shugo Tokumaru "Pah-Paka" - I cannot go without Shugo.
That's it til next year...although I'm already keeping up very poorly this year so this might be it forever!
