My favorite albums of 2015

These are my favorite albums of last year.
  1. Sprained Ankle - Julien Baker
    The beautiful, minimal debut solo album from Julien Baker. It's heartbreaking in all the best ways.
  2. Hope Fading Nightly - Tellison
    A solid British indie rock album without a single bad track.
  3. Pale Horses - mewithoutYou
    Possibly the album that best demonstrates the things that make mewithoutYou a great band. Many biblical references run throughout.
  4. Every Open Eye - CHVRCHES
    One of the best electro-pop albums I've heard with plenty of musical variety.
  5. Carry The Fire - Dustin Kensrue
    A solo album from Thrice's lead singer. Kensrue explores a variety of personal themes supported by his strong songwriting ability.
