The Best Albums of 2015

This list has been scientifically created by making Emacs list what albums I listened most frequently to this year.  You can’t argue with facts, so you’ll just have to admit that this is the best music released this year.

Róisin Murphy Hairless Toys
Baby Dee I Am A Stick
Dat Politics No Void
Hauntologists Hauntologists
Lolina Relaxin’ with Lolina
Split The Ex & Selvhenter
Arthur Russell Corn
Jamie XX In Colour
Joanna Newsom Divers
Sun Kil Moon Universal Themes
Telepathe Destroyer
Tracey Thorn Songs from The Falling
µ-Ziq XTLP
Actress Bird Matrix
Barbara Morgenstern Beide

However, if you look at the list of the albums I listened the most to this year, no matter when they were released…

I’m so old.

Talking Heads Remain In Light
Kate Bush The Dreaming
Laura Jean Laura Jean
Boris Noise (2)
Boris The Thing Which Solomon Overlooked (chronicle) (4)
Kate Bush The Kick Inside
Róisin Murphy Hairless Toys
The Cure Faith (1)
The Cure Pornography (1)
The Cure Seventeen Seconds (1)
Baby Dee I Am A Stick
Dat Politics No Void
Hauntologists Hauntologists
Kate Bush Lionheart
Kate Bush Never For Ever

Geez.  Well, I haven’t really bought that many albums this year.  Couple hundred?  It’s way down from earlier years.  It’s mainly because I’ve been focussing on watching films and reading comics.

You know.  The really other two really important things in life.

In other data driven news: last.fm seems to be dropping about half my scrobbles now?  Is that a thing?  After the redesign, last.fm is pretty useless, so I guess they’ll be shutting down any second now…
