This is machine music for a machine-ruled future made by someone who truly loves machines.

13. Domenique Dumont - Comme Ça

June 22, 2015
Critic Score
82
1 review

What's most impressive about Comme Ça is how much ground it covers in so little time, sliding by in a breezy 25 minutes. Its brevity is central to its appeal: Comme Ça teases and beguiles, like the final slither of a setting sun.

12. Oneohtrix Point Never - Garden of Delete

November 13, 2015
Critic Score
79
24 reviews
That OPN can still sound wholly original while engaging with the mainstream—and in his own fucked up, tongue-in-cheek way—reiterates the strength of vision that brought him to this point.

11. Mariah - Utakata no Hibi [Reissue]

7. Julia Holter - Have You in My Wilderness

September 25, 2015
Critic Score
87
25 reviews

Even if Have You In My Wilderness is Holter's most accessible record to date, it's riddled with enough puzzles, lyrical twists and delicate refinement to remain intriguing listen after listen.

5. Björk - Vulnicura

January 20, 2015
Critic Score
86
30 reviews

This narrative thread seems to have focussed Björk's compositional powers, and Vulnicura has a momentum and coherence lacking in her recent efforts.

3. Jlin - Dark Energy

March 24, 2015
Critic Score
84
5 reviews
Jlin has plenty to say, and she has a remarkably strong and distinctive voice with which to say it.

2. Levon Vincent - Levon Vincent

February 9, 2015
Critic Score

3 reviews

1. Floating Points - Elaenia

November 6, 2015
Critic Score
83
17 reviews
It was unlikely the first Floating Points album would've been anything other than beautiful, though its stunning virtuosity turned out more elusive than expected.
