Albums of the year.

Yeah, I waited until the end of the year! Shocking! No real order apart from numbers 1 and 2.

1. Com Truise - Galactic Melt

2. Harms Way - Isolation

3. Cold Cave - Cherish...

4. Weekend Nachos - Worthless

5. Liturgy - Aesthethica

6. Clams Casino - ep/instrumentals (bit of a cheat!)

7.Touche Amore - Parting the sea...

8. Rustie - Glass Swords

9. Khann - Erode

10. M83 - Hurry Up...

11. Three Trapped Tigers - Route One...

12. Tombs - Path of Totality

13. Trap Them - Darker Handcraft

Honourable mentions - When Saints Go Machine, I Declare War, The Horrors, Fit For An Autopsy, Basement.

Best Demos - Nibiru, Final Rage, Iron Mind Collective, Mutilation Rites, Real Talk, Ladder Devils

Splits - Masakari/Alpinist, Despise You/Agoraphobic Nosebleed

I'm not fully buying into this 'mixtape' thing that has arisen this year (it's an excuse for an artist to circumnavigate criticism - "Oh, it's not my debut album, it's only my mixtape!") - but I did, like everyone else seemingly, enjoy the A$SAP Rocky one and the first The Weeknd one. And bits of the Terius Nash one.
