2015 Review

Here is a list of my top 30 favourite songs of the year:

(oh and here's a Spotify playlist for them but they are in ranked order, so it's quite schizophrenic - plus a couple are missing)






  










20. Love comes quickly – Mark Morriss (can't find link)










30. Poacher’s pride – Nicole Dollanganger

This was more of an album year, which is to say there were some incredible albums that I couldn't necessarily pick highlight "singles" from. They just worked as albums. This applies to at least the top five in the list below.

Here is a list of my top 15 favourite albums of the year:

1. Sufjan Stevens – Carrie And Lowell

2. Björk – Vulnicura

3. Baio – The Names

4. Gaz Coombes – Matador

5. Belle & Sebastian – Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance

6. SOPHIE – Product

7. Mark Morriss – The Taste Of Mark Morriss

8. Ryan Adams – 1989

9. Jamie xx – In Colour

10. Blur – The Magic Whip

11. Quarterbacks – Quarterbacks

12. Chemical Brothers – Born In The Echoes

13. Lana Del Rey – Honeymoon

14. New Order – Music Complete

15. Peaches – Rub

And there we have it, the (musical) review of the year.
