BEST ALBUMS OF Q1 2015

Father John Misty's my favorite; others are in no particular order
  1. Father John Misty, "I Love You Honeybear
    your id and mine, except more heartrendingly beautiful
  2. Rae Sremmurd, "SremmLife"
    I am dancing RIGHT NOW
  3. Natalie Prass, "Natalie Prass"
    so lovely I'm afraid I'll disappoint it
  4. Sleater-Kinney, "No Cities to Love"
  5. Quarterbacks, "Quarterbacks"
    the kind of twee-punk that resonates with me a little too much. I mean, they have a song called "Knicks"
  6. Title Fight, "Hyperview"
    music for driving off the side of the road at night
  7. Sufjan Stevens, "Carrie and Lowell"
    grappling with god and all you've got is a guitar
  8. The Hotelier, "It Never Goes Out"
    you are legally forbidden from typing any Hotelier lyrics not in all caps
  9. Drake, "If You're Reading This It's Too Late"
    it's never too late for you, Aubrey
  10. Lady Lamb the Beekeeper, "After"
    Lady Lamb is like if David Lynch created a guitar hero
  11. Will Butler, "Policy"
    a little rock and roll from the Other Butler
  12. Heems, "Eat Pray Thug"
    Heems razed conscious rap and rebuilt it in his image
  13. Tobias Jesso Jr., "Goon"
    just really good solid songs will get you very far
  14. Kendrick Lamar, "To Pimp a Butterfly"
    if this album were just "The Blacker the Berry," it would still be on here
  15. Purity Ring, "Another Eternity"
    music for robots having sex
  16. Courtney Barnett, "Sometimes I Sit and Think, Sometimes I Just Sit"
    great album title, greater album
  17. Action Bronson, "Mr. Wonderful"
    good album, great album cover
  18. Earl Sweatshirt, "I Don't Like Shit, I Don't Go Outside"
    artful monomania never went harder
