[tps_title]Gabrielle Bondi’s Top Midyear Picks in Music[/tps_title]
The number of new albums I’ve listened to is so abysmally small that I was debating whether I should make a Top 5 list at all, but after revisiting some of these new albums, I realized that I liked them all enough to include them in a Best Of list. The main reason I’ve not listened to as many new albums as I’ve liked is because Kendrick Lamar’s new album has been on repeat. While all of these albums have their merits, To Pimp A Butterfly is far and away the best of them all.
- To Pimp A Butterfly – Kendrick Lamar
- In Colour – Jamie xx
- Uptown Special – Mark Ronson
- How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful – Florence + the Machine
- Sound & Color – Alabama Shakes
