i am not in the habit of doing these lists. i think this might be the first time, like ever, that i am putting together a summary of albums that i liked in one year. there were many others with excellent parts. not all of these are great throughout.
but here is my list in no particular order.
twin shadow: forget
national: high violet
magenta skycode: relief
villa nah: origin
owen pallett: heartland
marina and the diamonds: the family jewels
the hundred in the hands: the hundred in the hands
bag raiders: bag raiders
anoraak: wherever the sun sets
jaakko eino kalevi: modern life
