15 Favorite Albums of 2015

Music impressed me this year. New Music Monday turned New Music Friday became a day I anticipated more than ever, and I was rarely let down. By April, I knew choosing my favorite albums of 2015 would be much more difficult than the previous year.

I’m not here to tell you the “best” albums of 2015, because in my opinion, there’s no such thing as making an objective decision on art that’s so deeply rooted in human emotion and interpretations. Plus I probably missed some brilliant, indie release that never really surfaced. So I will share my favorites out of the albums I looped repeatedly. These songs bookmark some significant moments, both good and bad, I had this year. I most definitely danced, had an epiphany, laughed, and cried while listening to them.

My list is alphabetized (by artist) below because I’m incapable of choosing an absolute favorite, and here’s a Spotify playlist for easy listening. Which albums did you cling to in 2015? Please share in the comments section!

25 – Adele


California Nights – Best Coast


Every Open Eye – CHVRCHES


 Chaos And The Calm – James Bay


You Should Be Here – Kehlani


To Pimp A Butterfly – Kendrick Lamar


Crybaby – Melanie Martinez


Time – Mikky Ekko


Sponge Fingerz – New Beat Fund


another eternity – Purity Ring


Carrie & Lowell – Sufjan Stevens


Glitterbug – The Wombats


 Blurryface  – twenty one pilots


VHS – X Ambassadors


Communion – Years & Years


I added an EP to this list as a bonus, because my friends in Kid Cadaver put out a great one this year. After being introduced to them and experiencing their live show, I quickly understood the appeal and became a supporter. These guys are a part of some great 2015 memories, including this music video I was a part of for their single “Keep Well.” I root for them and I hope you will too.

Roam – Kid Cadaver
