Mitski - The Land Is Inhospitable and So Are We
88
Quiet in its most intricate moments, but full of intensity, emotion and honesty. Mitski's new album is a tour de force of how limitless her art has become since her breakthrough. There's a sense of sheer aesthetically beauty in the music that can only be highlighted by her witty, introspective and chronicle songwriting. No one is at her level right now.
Jason Isbell - Weathervanes
85
The perfect example of how a group of talented musicians can come together to highlight what every single one of them can bring to the table. There is not a lackluster moment, nor a boring one. Jason & company were in the zone.
jaimie branch - Fly or Die Fly or Die Fly or Die ((world war))
84
Jaimie's last full body of work is life-affirming with a big sense of community and hopefulness. The fight may be long and hard, but it's nevertheless rewarding if we come out there feeling free.
Shygirl - Nymph
81
Grew on me EXPONENTIALLY!!!!!!!!!!
Agriculture - Agriculture
83
Pure exhilaration, even in its darkest, most profound moments.

A compilation of albums from non-English speaking artists that I wanted to hear for quite a while. Everyone is free to recommend me more. I'd love to have more suggestions.

My personal choices of albums that achieve when it comes to storytelling, descriptive scenarios or witty and creative lyrical content. They're not in any particular order.
