I, like many people, absolutely love music. My musical tastes are somewhat eclectic, but most of the music I listen to could be categorized under folk, electronic, or experimental. And I am thankful to have been simply bombarded with phenomenal new music lately!
Some of the recent releases I’ve been listening to include:
- Ani DiFranco’s ¿Which Side Are You On?
- Laura Gibson’s La Grande
- Sinéad O’Connor’s How About I Be Me (And You Be You)
- Anaïs Mitchell’s Young Man In America
- The Cranberries’ Roses
- Kate Havnevik’s You
And multiple new releases leading up to iamamiwhoami’s highly anticipated album (due out in June). I don’t know if any of you have been following iamamiwhoami, but they started as a series of mysterious teaser music videos over two years ago that blossomed into a fantastic audio-visual experience (all for free on YouTube, though you can purchase the releases via iTunes and Amazon).
Anyway, new music is great, but there are some of those albums that are simply amazing to me that I return to year after year and I never get tired of. Here are my top five all-time favorite albums:
My #1 pick is the highest played album on my iTunes playlist, clocking in at nearly 300 plays (for the whole album). The others all average in the hundreds of plays.
