It's been a while. Two years actually since I posted a year-end list on this blog. Admittedly this blog was dormant for the past two years but it's definitely something I miss. Even if the readers may not. This has been a good year of music -- brilliant new albums from some of my favorite artists (Frog Eyes, Destroyer, Mountain Goats, Sufjan Stevens) and some brilliant releases from artists much newer to me (The World Is, Day Wave, San Fermin, Courtney Barnett). All in all, the top 10 is probably as strong as any year in recent memory and I would only say that perhaps the "depth" isn't as strong as it used to be... I only go 50 deep on this list, whereas in the past I used to go 100 deep, but perhaps that's due to my lack of time to pay enough attention to all the great indie music still out there in 2015. Anyway, here's the list:
