1/ alt-J - An Awesome Wave
A hype? Yes, undeniably! But at the same time an awesome band with creative songwriting skills that deliver a stunning album worthy of the number 1 spot? Most definitely!
2/ Richard Hawley - Standing At The Sky’s Edge
Excellent masterpiece of the cool britpop-crooner. Standing at the sky’s Edge beautifully meanders from one pearl tot the next.
3/ Father John Misty - Fear Fun
Josh Tillman shakes off his Fleet Foxes image and - under a new moniker - reveals a whole new universe of slightly deranged but beautifully orchestrated songs.
4/ Chromatics - Kill for Love
From the stunning Neil young cover of Into the black to electronically infused dreams like Lady and Back From The Grave, Kill for Love is a killer album!
5/ Calexico - Algiers
Recorded in and influenced by New Orleans but at the same time loyal to the Calexico-recipe. Algiers is another standout in their impressive discography!
