Here's the music that made sweet, sweet love to my ear holes this year (in no particular order).
- •NEW ORDER - MUSIC COMPLETE. Their first new albm in 10 years combines the best of everything they do — guitar rock, electronic dance grooves, and a little weirdness. (One song, “Plastic,” even sounds like it was produced by Giorgio Moroder, wut?). Nearly every song is top shelf, and Bernard’s voice still sounds great.
- •PINS - WILD NIGHTS. The first full-length album from these five women from Manchester. And it’s an amazing debut. Straight-up rock with an ethereal quality — and all of it just rough enough around the edges. Run don’t walk to your nearing streaming service now. (And thanks Gareth Kay for turning me on to this band. I’ll be forever grateful.)
- •DISCLOSURE - CARACAL. I think this album was on repeat more than any other album this year. The two Lawrence brothers behind Disclosure have their own unique sound in a field crammed with same-alikes. It’s catchy as sh*t, and will make you shake.yo.rumpah from start to finish. Two thumbs up. It’d be three if I had thrumbs (see what I did there?).
