With the first half of the year over, what are your favourites so far?
>>
Top 5
Kishi Bashi - Lighght
Owen Pallett - In Conflict
Antlers - Familiars
War on Drugs - Lost In the Dream
Sun Kil Moon - Benji
>>
>>48063119
Sun Kil Moon, White Lung, How to Dress Well, Todd Terje, Viet Kong, Angel Olsen, EMA, War on Drugs, Owen Pallett.

As you can see by how generic that list is, i need more 2014 recommendations. Preferably some hiphop/rnb/pop cause it's been a weak year for those so far.

Expecting: Ariana Grande, Kendrick Lamar, Merchandise, D'angelo(?),

Total Control - Typical System
>>
>>48064695
Thanks, I didn't care much for Typical System, but it's certainly not a bad album by any means. Also, my perception of Total Control might have been dampened because I had to review it for a website and I usually listen to an album a lot in a short time span before reviewing.

Coming through y'all

>>48063773
It is and you know it. Plenty of solid albums, but there was literally nothing that stood out thus far.
>>
>>48067182
biggest standouts have been Pinata or CLPPNG
cilvia was also excellent
>>
>>48067263
I thought Pinata was solid, but nothing to write home about. CLPPNG was disappointing. Half the songs were great, the other half were trash IMO. Cilvia was decent for debut standards.
>>
>>48067182
that new bozulich album was super disappointing.
was a real bummer. that concrete misery album is goat, tho. so good.

Made to Break - Cherchez la Femme
Roscoe Mitchell - Conversations I & II
Ken Vandermark & Paal Nilssen-Love - Lightning Over Water
Gato Libre - DuDu
The Soundcarriers - Entropicalia
Comet Gain - Paperback Ghosts

I always need more cute cat/pop music.

overall pretty crap year. at least compared to GOAT 2012 it is.
>>
>>48067182
shout out for the Protomartyr appreciation. it's a good album.
>>
>>48067362
yeah i liked CLPPNG but it could have been so much better if they cut a few tracks...like Tonight, that songs just straight up bad. the beats are cool and Diggs has great flow though
