FAVORITE ALBUMS OF THE YEAR SO FAR ANY GENRE

  1. 1.
    To Pimp a Butterfly by Kendrick Lamar
    This is Kendrick's masterwork so far. Really love the Jazz influenced music and his lyrics are incredible as alway. Infinitely re-listenable. Fav tracks: Wesley's Theory, King Kunta, Hood Politics, The Blacker the Berry
  2. 2.
    I Love You Honeybear by Father John Misty
    The male version of Adele or Lana I suppose. Father John Misty's lyrics can be flat out hilarious at times and some songs are catchy as hell. Fav tracks: Chateau Lobby #4, The Night Josh Tillman Came to Our Apartment, Ideal Husband, Holy Shit
  3. 3.
    The Epic by Kamasi Washington
    Remember when I was talking about the Jazz influenced music on To Pimp a Butterfly? Well this Kamasi Washington fellow played saxophone on that album. And he made a fantastic solo album. It's three hours long, but it's mega-good if Jazz is ur thing. Fav tracks: Change of the Guard, Final Thought, The Magnificent 7
  4. 4.
    Summertime '06 by Vince Staples
    Oh sweet baby boy I just listened to this album like 3 hours ago but it's good as heck. I just wish I had a friend that could've introduced me to Vince Staples. Oh well, I love the production and most of the lyrics. Fav tracks: Lift Me Up, Summertime, 3230, Surf
  5. 5.
    Currents by Tame Impala
    Tame Impala is a psychedelic pop band that I like quite a bit and while I didn't like currents quite as much as Lonerism it was still a solid album with good songs and tunes. Fav Tracks: Let it Happen, Eventually, Disciples
  6. 6.
    Compton by Dr Dre
    Oooooohhh momma can Dr Dre produce the ever living heck out of a record. Fun af to listen to and it's good to know he can still get the job done. Fave tracks: Genocide, One Shot One Kill, Just Another Day, Talking To My Diary
  7. 7.
    Inherent Vice soundtrack by Jonny Greenwood
    Pretty sure this came out in 2014 but fuck it. I listened to it a lot this year and it's good as all hell. Fav tracks: Spooks, Chryskylodon, Adrian Prussia, Under the Paving-Stones The Beach!, Shasta Fay Hepworth
