Sean Hewson - Albums of the Year 2015

by Sean Hewson Rating: Release Date:

There were so many strong albums. These are the ones that I can remember:

1. The Telescopes - Hidden Fields

2. Younghusband - Dissolver 

Hidden Fields reminds me of when Loop, Spacemen 3 and MBV (and The Telescopes) were putting out their 80s albums. I always thought that more could have been done in that area, and now it has. Dissolver is just a brilliant album – timeless songs, well played.

3. Julia Holter – Have You in My Wilderness

4. Kendrick Lamar – To Pimp a Butterfly

5. Tame Impala – Currents

Three exceptional albums by three exceptional talents. 

6. Hey Colossus – Radio Static High

A really pleasant surprise. I'd never really committed to these chaps before but this is awesome.

7. Loop - Array 1

Welcome back, the mighty Loop.

8. King Midas Sound/Fennesz – Editions 1

It’s Kevin Martin. KEVIN MARTIN.

9. Ringo Deathstarr – Pure Mood

Another pleasant surprise. Seems a lot more confident than their previous records.

10. The Chills – Silver Bullets

Welcome back, the mighty The Chills.

Younghusband album is brilliant, they really deserve a lot of praise. Disappointed with the Tame Impala album. Nice to see Hey Colossus album on another list.

Younghusband was disappointing at first (their debut is incredible in comparison) but it's growing on me - Ringo Deathstarr and The Chills were great too!
