this decade in music so far

i know we’re not quite halfway through the year yet but with june rapidly flying by before my eyes, i thought it best to post a list of my favorite music so far this year – and decade, really – before everyone else starts. as decades go, this hasn’t been a bad way to start one musically. i tried to base my picks off of a combination of how impressed i was when i first heard them and how often i continue to listen to them.

i kept the list at ten for now, excluding EPs (sorry twin sister, active child) and anything that’s not officially out yet (ditto kisses, robyn). no doubt these will change, drop off and/or shuffle around in the next six months or so, and there are others not included that will turn up in the extended list come december. but right now, whether you agree or not, here are my favorite albums of the year so far to take us into the weekend:

  1. beach houseteen dream
    i know this is probably the obvious choice for a lot of people but it really is that good.
  2. ariel pink’s haunted graffitibefore today
  3. flying lotuscosmogramma
  4. tame impalainnerspeaker
  5. the nationalhigh violet
  6. joanna newsomhave one on me
  7. janelle monáethe archandroid
  8. caribouswim
  9. wild nothinggemini
  10. LCD soundsystemthis is happening
