  3. Listless
    by The Depreciation Guild
    My favorite Depreciation Guild song of all time and honestly maybe the best shoegaze song ever written. So happy to finally own a lossless copy!

  10. Lord Bendtner
    by Lord Bendtner
    Chéri Chéri
    Wall-to-wall catchy jams with delightful retro synthesizers and a lo-fi aesthetic that's charming without being grating.
  11. Two
    by Ninth Paradise
    Oceans Oceans
    Everyone's favorite mathy gaze duo are finally back with matured songwriting chops and a nice set of tracks you'll be bobbing your head along to. Not quite the immediate smash hit their S/T was, but the warm guitar and synth tones are to die for—and Oceans is possibly their best song yet!
  12. Impossible Animals
    by ROAR
    Explosion of Birds Explosion of Birds
    One of my most eagerly-anticipated releases in years—and it does a great job of matching up to the hype. The first half is almost entirely full of massive standouts, and the second is surprisingly reminiscent of some of Deerhunter's Halcyon Digest-era best. An excellent addition to an already-unbelievable discography.
  13. Hyper Light Drifter
    by Disasterpeace
    Vignette: Panacea Vignette: Panacea
    After losing track of Disasterpeace for a few years, I was awestruck to hear the Panacea vignette play in one of the best video game trailers I've ever seen (due in no small part to the music, of course!). Sold me on the soundtrack, sold me on the game.
  14. Life of Pause
    by Wild Nothing
    Life of Pause Life of Pause
    Here we find Jack Tatum continuing his turn towards the retro and electronic, but mourn not, Nocturne lovers—there's still plenty here to love. The title track's synth lines and chorus have particularly been stuck in my head for months.

    I saw the opening track played live and basically had a religious experience.

  16. Ninth Paradise
    by Ninth Paradise
    Ten Years Ten Years
    A surprise sleeper hit for me and easily one of my favorite gaze albums from the past few years, full of beautiful, shimmering guitars and mathy rhythms. Anyone who can bliss out in 5/4 gets my vote!
  17. Odyssey
    by HOME
    Resonance Resonance
    Just because you've heard That One Song used in approximately 30,000 different Vines by now doesn't make it any less great.
  18. Forest Words
    by Leaaves
    Sprain Sprain
  19. Hope (live at Revolver Records)
    by ROAR

    For real, though, this song rocks. Very intelligently composed and full of excellent psychedelic surprises.
  20. After Hours 7"
    by Ablebody
    After Hours After Hours
    Definitely Ablebody's most immediately catchy song to date. The chorus is such an earworm!
  21. Anglais
    by Speak English
    Coward At Heart Coward At Heart
    Smartly-written psych pop featuring one of my favorite songwriters around.
  22. Wii Shop Channel (Remix)
    by Nicky Flowers
    Don't be turned off by the sample source, this remix is straight-up fuego. It's still bouncing around my cranium two weeks later.
  23. Impressions From A Ghost
    by Ghost In A Sundress
    Bad At Goodbyes Bad At Goodbyes
    Fascinating mixture of ambient soundscapes and delicate indie pop. Stellar pacing — it's almost like watching (er, listening?) to a short film.
  24. Get Olde Second Wind
    by Crying
    ES ES
    Second Wind finds everyone's favorite band named after everyone's favorite lacrimal apparatus-based secretomotor phenomenon showing off more mature and consistently-excellent songwriting than ever before. But that don't mean that ES ain't still my jam.
  25. My Dixieland Home
    by The J. Arthur Keenes Band
    Russian Doll Russian Doll
    Take the charming lo-fi precedent established by the project's recent output, throw in some blues, jazz, and perhaps a dash of Grizzly Bear circa Yellow House, and you've got my favorite JAKB release since Mighty Social Lion.
  26. Something About Villages
    by The J. Arthur Keenes Band
    Colonial Coins Colonial Coins
    At least 10 times better than Vampire Weekend. At least.
  27. Manic Pixie Dream Girl
    by Squiggly Lines
    The Other Day The Other Day
    Far-out, foot-tapping folk ditties from J. Arthur Keenes' kin that are sure to satisfy.
  28. 10 Songs In A Day
    by The J. Arthur Keenes Band
    I Was Tired Three Hours Ago I Was Tired Three Hours Ago
    What can I say? Dude writes better songs in 24 hours than I can do in 24 months.
  29. Between Love and Nothing at All
    by The Society of Poor Academics featuring The J. Arthur Keenes Band
    Weekend Weekend
    Great lo-fi pop record featuring one of my all-time favorite musicians. Getting some serious Pains of Being Pure at Heart vibes from tSoPA's vocals!
  30. Overcoat Weather
    by The J. Arthur Keenes Band
    Overcoat Weather Overcoat Weather
    Keenes' kaleidoscopic and ever-inventive multi-sectional songs have always been my favorites. This piece is no exception.
  31. F A K E G O L D
    by Boys Age
    Fake Gold Pt.1 Wonderful Life Fake Gold Pt.1 Wonderful Life
  32. Don't Tip The Delivery Boy
    by Panucci's Pizza
    Nicholas Cajun (Stole the Declaration of Pizzapendence!) Nicholas Cajun (Stole the Declaration of Pizzapendence!)
    Rad-as-hell emo jams full of quirky pop culture references, and it even comes on a cassette covered in pizza stickers. how are you not all over this already like c'mon man wtf
  33. Get Some Sun
    by The J. Arthur Keenes Band
    Some Nerve Some Nerve
    The JAKB takes its most experimental turn yet with some excellent results. Endless Loop showcases the project's somber side, Gray and Some Nerve balance catchy melodies with interesting songwriting, and the final two tracks break new ground with layered textures galore.
  34. Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
    by Clap Your Hands Say Yeah
    In This Home On Ice In This Home On Ice
    Neat indie pop jams with a unique vocalist. A special shout-out is in order to In This Home On Ice for its super sexy shoegazey guitar riffs.
  35. Bread & Silver Water
    by It is rain in my face.
    Fast as a Feather Fast as a Feather
  36. Life’s A Bit Shifter
    by Bit Shifter
    March Of The Nucleotides March Of The Nucleotides
    The legend starts here.
  37. Ghost
    Ghost Ghost
    Catchy, hazy grunge jams.
  38. New Album
    by Boris
    Pardon? Pardon?
    An incredibly solid album full of loud noise pop-esque jams, interesting electronics, incredible musicianship, and no fewer than three songs that would probably make good OP/ED themes for some sort of subversive shounen anime.
  39. Songs For Camila/Songs for Squares
    by The J. Arthur Keenes Band
    Lightning Rod Lightning Rod
    This split EP has three more infectiously catchy songs from the J. Arthur Keenes Band, but believe it or not, it's actually Squiggly Lines who steals the show here. I seriously challenge you to not have Lightning Rod stuck in your head all day.
    Catchy melodies with some wonderfully jangly guitar. The title track is fantastic.
  41. Pencil EP
    by Pencil
    Newspaper Newspaper
    Cute indie pop with album art drawn on lined paper. What more could you want?
  42. Precise Works Ideal Selection, Vol. 001: TileWild
    by Kurt Feldman
    Type C Type C
    Take a trip back to those golden Depreciation Guild days of yore with this short-but-sweet little soundtrack. Still every bit as enjoyable as the rest of the band's legendary oeuvre, even though the Hochheim twins' gauzy guitars and drumming are sadly (though understandably) missing.
  43. Precise Works Ideal Selection, Vol. 002: StarLicker
    by Kurt Feldman
    Astral Focus Astral Focus
    A great little soundtrack to what I presume is a great little game (I still have to get around to playing it, OK?). At any rate, it's fantastic to see Kurt teaming up with Hayden Cacace again.
  44. Serket
    by Positive Infinity
    Immortelle Immortelle
    How is this not getting more attention? (No, seriously, HOW?) It's a highly enjoyable, organic, and intelligent mix of jazz, funk, and chipmusic that scratches itches that the likes of Fearofdark and PROTODOME just can't quite hit. Also, there's some sick soloing.

    Just like knife city's self-titled EP did last year, Roboctopus reminded me with this album just how enjoyable chipmusic releases can be without needing any additional live instrumentation. Love all the colorful chromaticism.
