25. John Grant - Grey Tickles, Black Pressure

October 2, 2015
Critic Score
82
18 reviews
Sometimes the soul-baring is almost painful, and you might wince at Grant’s verbose open letters to old lovers. But part of Grant’s appeal is his ability to unashamedly go places where others dare not. His finest album yet.

20. Holly Herndon - Platform

May 19, 2015
Critic Score
79
24 reviews
Mixing the hard-cut collage methods of musique concrete with sound-warping software and customised digital instruments, Herndon’s second album is not ashamed to embrace blissful melody and trance-like euphoria, yet remains constantly alive to the liberating power of dissonance and disruption.

12. Unknown Mortal Orchestra - Multi-Love

May 26, 2015

26 reviews

Multi-Love finds Unknown Mortal Orchestra surging ahead of their fellow psych-pop voyagers, abandoning the hazy introversion of previous albums for frisky, rainbow-coloured optimism.

6. Tame Impala - Currents

July 17, 2015

The previously aggressive swirls and surges have abated, with Parker now filling the space with hazy, Gallic grooves that bear a distinct air of Air.

5. Father John Misty - I Love You, Honeybear

Critic Score
88
34 reviews

From such banal beginnings a new life – and a truly compelling new album – have bloomed.
