Top 10 Albums 2015 - Sufjan Stevens - acid stag

Top 10 Albums of 2015 by Natalia Morawski

words by Natalia Morawski

2015 seemed to be a year for the return of old favourites for me, those bands and artists that bring good material each time round, never straying too far from their preconceived sound – and that’s just how it should be

The albums below were on my heavy rotation list this year; I listened to Sufjan Stevens‘ Carrie & Lowell everyday for an entire month, and almost eight months later I still listen to it like it came out today.

So here’s to the oldies, but also the goldies – not forgetting the few newbies who snagged a spot as well

  1. 1. Sufjan Stevens – Carrie and Lowell

  2. 2. Julia Holter – Have You In My Wilderness
  3. 3. Beach House – Depression Cherry
  4. 4. Project Pablo – I Want To Believe
  5. 5. Chaos In The CBD – Midnight In Peckham
  6. 6. Tame Impala – Currents
  7. 7. Admin – No Problemo
  8. 8. Moses Summney – Seeds
  9. 9. Mac Demarco – Another One
  10. 10. Beach House – Thank Your Lucky Stars

Sevdaliza – Children of Silk EP [Stream]

Dutch singer, songwriter and producer Sevdaliza has just recently released her second collection of enigmatic tunes on her, Children of Silk EP.

The EP features four very impressive daydreaming arrangements of softly thudded beats, twinkling piano and Sevdaliza‘s ethereal vocals that float effortlessly through rhythmic layers of chaotic melancholy sounds.

Stream it below, buy it from iTunes or listen in on Spotify.

SACHI – No More (ft. Zoe & SYSYI) [New Single]

SACHI is a 17 year-old production duo out of New Zealand who are prepping for the release of their debut EP, Lunch With Bianca, and just a few days ago they gave us its first single.

‘No More’ is a slick synth-riddled, future-bass tune that gives us a nice little insight into SACHI‘s crisp sound and style. The vocals belong to someone known only as Zoe, and fellow-Kiwi producer SYSYI is also helping out on the track’s production.

DEATHS - Under Old Sun EP [Stream] - acid stag

DEATHS – Under Old Sun EP [Stream]

A duo out of Berlin called DEATHS recently released their debut EP, Under Old Sun, showcasing a neat little four-track collection of their chilled, nostalgic indie-pop sound – nothing as morbid as their name may suggest

These tracks are quite soothing with their soft melodies, chilled instrumentation and an overall mellow atmosphere, giving DEATHS a sound that makes me think of a mix between Wolf Parade, Kisses and Sean Nicholas Savage.

Stream it below or check out on iTunes / Spotify.
